Good Hope Visit 2016

Good Hope Logo
On Tuesday 4th October 2016, four people from our Diocese will begin a visit to the four Good Hope Foundation nursery schools in Lango, Northern Uganda. A number of people from our Diocese support the work of these schools for orphaned children in their localities.

Charles & Helen Owens and Robert & Kath Townsend will also be meeting up with friends from our link Diocese of Lango, as well as with new friends from the newly created Diocese of West Lango, which has been formed because of the growth of the Church in that part of northern Uganda.

This is the homepage for news of their visit, and if you would like to support them in prayer, please send an email to request a copy of their prayer request and itinary.

Please do pray for this visit, and follow it here, on Twitter and on Facebook.
