What will we be doing on the trip?
During our time in Uganda, we will be working alongside our in-country ministry partner, Global Outreach – specifically, the Global Theological Seminary (GTS) just outside Jinja. This year, specifically, the team will be attending the April graduation ceremony at GTS. Our primary purpose on this trip will be to come alongside and join the local leaders, pastors, and missionaries in their efforts to teach, encourage, disciple, and minster in the local churches and villages.
Where will we stay?
The team will be housed in a local Guest House. Guest Homes are similar to smaller, “bed and breakfast” type hotels.
How will we get around the city?
The team will be transported around the city in a seminary vehicle, taxi’s, hired vans, or hired buses. One may even have the opportunity to ride on the back of a “boda boda” or motorcycle taxi.
What else will we do?
One evening, the team will get to visit the source of the Nile River by boat while their meal is being prepared at the Kingfisher Resort. There will also be opportunities for shopping in local markets for souvenirs etc.
What is a typical day’s schedule like?
After breakfast, the team will spend the morning at GTS, sitting in on classes and spending time with students and faculty. The team will participate in chapel at the seminary in late morning. After chapel, the team will have lunch and head towards their afternoon ministry location(s) until dinner. Evenings will most likely consist of free time and/or team preparation time for the next day.
