Missions

Our Uganda Mission

It’s hard to believe that next year will bring the twentieth year of our partnership with sister churches in Uganda. It was in1996 that a team of four from Montesano Presbyterian first traveled there, invited by a local leader to work on a new church building and encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ. While there, the team became acquainted with the great needs of the people and the large number of orphans they cared for which had been created by the recent AIDS epidemic and war.
In the following years our church instituted an annual Uganda Auction to raise funds for purchasing food, medical aid, Bibles, and building materials. By 2000 we were ready to send a larger group of ten back to Uganda to work on an orphanage site. This team also compiled a photo album of as many orphans as possible with the purpose of raising individual support back in the States. During the next four years this program helped more than forty orphans with their daily needs and education. The churches themselves were funded for ministry and evangelism.
On their next visit in 2004 our team unfortunately began to receive reports from local church pastors of moral misbehavior and financial irregularity in our Ugandan representative. Parting ways with this individual was a sad and disruptive time which caused a loss of much support for the Mission. However, local leaders have filled the void, and the number of member churches grows yearly to forty-two currently.
Further mission trips to Uganda have been conducted in 2008, 20012, and 2014. In 2013 our church was blessed by the visit of Dr. Bosco Kalule who, as an orphan, was supported through school and college by our ministry. As the congregation listened to Dr. Kalule’s inspiring story, it was brought home to us that this ministry is not one-sided, but is a two-way street of encouragement and spiritual support. Other Uganda ministry milestones have been the purchase in 2006 of a Ministry van to enable the leadership to visit all their far-flung churches and conduct evangelistic crusades, and the recent purchase of two main ministry sites with their church buildings. Marking twenty years of Uganda Ministry, our next mission trip will be happening in the spring of 2018.
If you have any interest in or questions about this vital ministry, you can contact Jim Dameron or anyone on the Mission and Outreach committee.
