Lawrence at Matugga


The Revival Centre Matugga

Lawrence (our children and youth worker) is currently at Matugga in Uganda, together with some Disciple Year students from the New Wine programme.  Its being a busy, challenging and uplifting trip. A highlight has been the three hour very energetically attended church service on Sunday (15 May) where Lawrence spoke. The team have visited the source of the Nile with Bishop Ivan and his family and loved seeing the hectic and colourful country.

Lawrence and the DY Students have been busily working on painting and renovating the children’s play area and the school buildings and making time to play football with the children in their break times.

They have learned so much already about reaching into areas of great need – and will have much to reflect upon when they return on Monday.

With no wi-fi based communication – we’ve received this update from Jem (Lawrence’s wife) who would like to say a huge thank you to those who have prayed for Lawrence in Mattuga;  for them as a family, for the cottage pies, dog walks, shopping and general encouragement while Lawrence has been away. It has been really touching and made a huge difference.
