Ishongororo Community Church

Nestled in a small gully next to the busy highway leading back to Mbarara town, this small church was filled with eager participants. Time keeping proved to be the biggest challenge in a community where time has very little value – you dig in the garden, you go home. As a result, we didn’t cover all that we’d hoped but we still had some very engaged, eager people grasping concepts that were entirely new and entirely useful.

Look what I found on the side of the road.
Pastor George had another opportunity to co-facilitate as he gained confidence and experience in preparation for independent teaching ministry on behalf of Surprised by Hope. Pastor Gerald was a great help to us all as well. We struggled a bit with the translator – just knowing English doesn’t necessarily qualify a person to translate…let alone translate business terms. Pastor Gerald became quite good at helping in this area given that this was his third time in the same week having attended the training.
