Tim will be visiting with Wilberforce Okwumu near Mbale, Uganda from December 16, 2021 – January 1, 2022. CampsAbroad has been invited to help a group of Ugandan nationals that has been using a camp to serve their teens for several years, but they expressed a need for better counselor training – particularly in building relationships and biblical counseling. They view camp as a piece of the puzzle in supporting the local church, training young adult leaders, and reaching teens for Christ in Uganda. The long-term goal is to train young adults in ministry to enable them to reach up the Nile into Muslim countries as Ugandans. To accomplish that goal, they are working to grow their ministry training.

CampsAbroad’s role is training and consulting. Tim will teach 3 days of training.  After the training has finished, there will be a short break, and then 5 days of camp will follow. Since they are already running camps, Tim will mostly be observing and consulting during the camp week.

Prayer Requests:

  • Smooth travel – especially with the new Covid variant
  • Energy for Tim while teaching 3 days of training
  • Wisdom while consulting with this camp group during the trip
  • Future opportunities! Tim is hopeful to connect with another pastor, Shadrach, who has a substantial youth ministry a couple hours north of the group he will be visiting
