The Need: Most pastors are lacking solid theological teaching and Gospel understanding. They are often not truly saved and follow a works based methodology. Many do not have a Bible and follow whatever teaching they may hear on the radio. Although often quite sincere, they are sincerely wrong.
The average age of a Ugandan is 14 years old. Children have raised themselves and are lacking parenting skills. Adequate education and employment are not easily obtained. Fertility awareness and care in pregnancy & delivery are minimal. 62% go w/o adequate pregnancy/birth care. There are 2.6 million orphans in Uganda.
