In the last year, we have spent a lot of time re-investing our energies into ensuring the quality of our program in Uganda. Since we had expanded to surrounding countries quickly, we were loosing some ground on the home front. However, we are proud to say that our small groups at the Universities are averaging 25 participants – about 1/3rd of these student leaders are directly involved in student politics and 2/3rds influence in other spheres at their respective Universities.
Personally, I feel that wherever we have gone, we have been received with open hands. It is a testament of what Jesus said in Luke 9:48: “…and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me…” More than anything else people are welcoming the message of the Kingdom of God packaged in the common ground we have in Jesus, and its implications on leadership. We know we are playing a small part in God’s greater plan for the world… it is now up to us to turn the world up-side down (Acts 17:6)!
