Organized by: Harrison Mountan
EVENT DATE Aug 18, 2014
Mbale is a town in northeast Uganda. It is located at the base of the Elgon Mountain range. The Equator runs through the middle of Uganda. Most of the people who live in Uganda are very poor by American standards. Uganda is one of the most Christian nations in Africa as a result of an unusual degree of revival in recent decades, but the Christians have very little training because of lack of resources.
I will be traveling with a team from Equipping Leadership International, who are conducting leadership training seminars for adult Christian leaders.
I will be shadowing a Ugandan youth leader. I will be doing 4 things:
- Learn what life is like for a teen in Uganda, and how the Christian faith is experienced by Ugandan youth
- Engage in authentic conversations about what it is like to grow up Christian in the United States
- Play music inside and outside churches as way of learning more about the indigenous music of Uganda and teaching others how to play piano and guitar
- Explore possible future ministry partnerships between ELI's Ugandan contacts and youth groups in the United States.
My overall need is approximately $4,000 to cover my plane ticket, in country food, lodging transportation and various additional travel documentation and expenses.
Our target is to purchase tickets by July 1st at latest.
