Mission Partner Focus: Diocese of South Rwenzori and Kagando Hospital, Uganda

As South Rwenzori Diocese experiences a time of growth:
  • Praise God that “the number of believers in South Rwenzori Diocese is growing every day” and pray that the new believers will continue to grow in faith and be established in truth
  • In response to the need for new pastors, 43 men and women have been selected as suitable for training as pastors. Ask for God’s selection and provision of resources for those of His choosing to begin their training in January 2023.
As Kagando Christian Hospital experiences a time of challenge:
  • Praise God for the many Christian staff who meet daily for prayer and worship in the chapel at Kagando Hospital
  • As salaries for medical staff in Government hospitals have been raised to a level that is almost twice that of current salaries at Kagando, pray for staff and management as they work together to find God’s way forward in response to this
  • As commodity prices rise steeply, there is need to limit expenditure and overheads related to the on-going Hydro Electric Project. Pray for wisdom in reviewing and rescoping the project.
