THE START IN UGANDA by Dr Lazarus

THE START IN UGANDA by Dr Lazarus

It was at the training conference in the UK, that he met Sam and Lynn Owen whom he encouraged to help begin ministry in Uganda. Mid July 1970, Charlie Powell came to Uganda and did a short training at Makerere University for the Christian Union members and I was one of the few students who attended that training. I had joined Makerere University a year earlier in July 1969. 

 I attended a CU fellowship and the preacher challenged those who were not born again to invite Christ into their lives. I did not move forward but his words kept echoing in my head until the next day, when I went to attend another CU fellowship. The preacher that day was a pastor from Kenya and after his sharing, he also gave an opportunity to people to pray and receive Christ. I said to myself, “Maybe this is what I am lacking in my life”.

LIFE STORIES

 COMMUNITY HEALTH EVANGELISM

COMMUNITY HEALTH EVANGELISM

When we moved from Kenya to Uganda in the1980s, we were expecting to begin an executive ministry in Kampala. However, because of the insecurity in the city we were reassigned to Hoima to set up a Community Health Evangelism (CHE) ministry.  We were first disappointed, but fell in love with the people and the opportunity to do training in physical health prevention topics and incorporating basic Cru spiritual training of win-build-send.

My Uganda journey began with my friendship with Sam and Lynn Owen. We were team mates with Campus Crusade for Christ in the US and, in 1971, they recruited me to join them in going to Uganda to begin the ministry.

After a lot of planning and praying, in September, 1972, I flew with the Owens, their little three-month-old Shep (who is now 6 foot 3 inches tall) to Uganda.  I was excited to get there at last.  

MY CALL TO MINISTRY as Missionary/Dentist by Ken

MY CALL TO MINISTRY as Missionary/Dentist by Ken

Then, during my first year in Dental school in 1971, I met some people who were very happy and excited about their relationship with Christ. They invited me to attend a training on how to share our faith in Christ that was being conducted by Campus Crusade for Christ International (CCCI). I attended, even though I was not sure that I was a Christian. It was while they were training us in how to use the Four Spiritual Laws booklet as a tool for evangelism that I finally understood how to be sure that I was a Christian.
