UGANDA TRIP, JUNE 2012
Calvary Community will be sending a team to Kampala, Uganda to work alongside our missionary partner Pastor Bethuel Dongo and with the children of God Cares School. The primary focus of this team will be training AWANA leaders and facilitating a week of the AWANA program for the children at the school. Some of the team will also be involved in distributing water filtration systems to families in surrounding villages and sharing the love of Jesus in Word and Deed.
Past experience with AWANA is not required to be involved with the trip. The team will have certified leaders facilitating the training.
Minimum age limit for the trip is 13 years old and must be accompanied by a parent.
Pastor Bethuel & Florence Dongo are Calvary supported missionaries who lead Kabalagala Pentecostal Church and God Cares School. God Cares School educates over 700 elementary children and houses over 100 children that are orphans or do not have adequate home care.
God Cares High School is still being constructed but already is school & home to over 100 students.
Calvary Community Church supports the ministry of Buyamba Uganda that helps bring sponsorship to God Cares students. Learn more here.
