Uganda is small country but hosts the beginning of the longest river in the world, the Nile. It sits at the top of Lake Victoria and is green and lush year-round. Uganda has rolling green hills and

low wetlands, and a lot of corn and rice is grown there. Uganda is on the equator but the temperature is moderate as it is at 3,500 feet elevation.

Uganda is beautiful and green, yet people are starving - both physically and spiritually. Our vision for the future is to build a ministry center that does 3 things: Teaches pastors, teaches skills to

teen girls, and teaches the community better farming practices. Right now, an exciting new team is in the beginning phases of building a ministry center to do just that!

Teaching something new to a people group is challenging, but teaching them to change the way they have been farming for ages is even more challenging! We have learned that you can’t give Ugandans new information and expect them to put it into practice. Our vision is to use the new farm to raise goats and grow mostly corn in a way that is successful and sustainable.

Join a team with leaders who both have degrees in agriculture to help work with them on this new endeavor. This farm is starting from scratch - so the sky is the limit!

There is a huge need for those who have a love for the lost and a love for their fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. Sincere Goers who are looking for an opportunity to make a difference and an impact for the Kingdom look no further, you are needed in Uganda!

Skills: 

Interested Goers need to have a strong relationship with the Lord, be able to “feed” themselves spiritually, and exhibit Fruit of the Spirit.

Goers would need to be good learners and come with the expectation that they’re going to receive as much as they give. Living and working in a new culture has a lot to teach you, and experienced missionaries can speak a lot into a person's life if they are humble and desire it.

Goers would definitely need to be able to work with people, to be able to do physical work, and know how to farm corn. Goers need to be a little tough and willing to try new things as well as be flexible.

It would be helpful if Goers knew how to drive in heavy rutted and mudded roads, use the 4 wheel drive, and also operate a manual transmission vehicle (but not required)
