Focusing on Uganda began in 1993 when we received a request to come to Uganda and help with a variety of needs. The country was struggling to rise from the devastating reign of Idi Amin. The people were dying from AIDS, the country was struggling to educate their children, the government was preparing a Constitution and disease and death were everywhere. Our first team arrived in 1995 and found wonderful, loving people struggling with life. We knew from that time that this was a place and a people with whom God had called us to work. We began taking teams regularly. Through the years we have focused on many different issues that have come to us as needs of the church.
