Team:

August 2012: ,

A team of 12 traveled to Mukono, Uganda alongside HFL Team Leader Gerry Stinson and church leader Rob Rousseau to work alongside our partners at Noah's Ark Children's Ministry (NACMU). The purpose of the trip was to show compassion to the people of Uganda by providing practical help to the community of Mukono and the orphan home. This trip focused on the school building project whereby a secondary vocational school will be built. The team worked within the local community showing Christ’s love and compassion for his people through ministry activities and work projects.
