The following was written by Tom, a business owner from outside of St. Louis, after reflecting on his experience on a 2016 Man Up and Go trip to Uganda.
I think what impacted me about Uganda was how open it is to the Gospel. The West has grown bored, or worse yet resistant to the Gospel, but here is a place that is hungry for the healing, hope, love, and social structure that are found only in Christ. They are eager to build lives that work making it an open door for the message of Christ. Can you imagine a place in the US where schools, universities, labor unions and organized sports teams are eager for Christians to come teach what it means to follow Christ?! That is the case today in Uganda. It’s a place where the harvest is plentiful.
