We have ministered to families in the various categories as below;
a.) YOUTH CONFERENCE
We organized a conference in partnership with Karugangama church and surrounding churches that attracted 83 youth. The conference was under the THEME: EPHESIANS 4:1-. Many youth gave their lives to Christ and others recommitted their lives with their family.
b. DAD –SON TALK
We organized a retreat for dads and their sons to discuss issues of Christian importance. We had 2 facilitators who helped the youth open up to their dads. That same day, we saw dads and sons reconciling. The retreat brought 8 dads and 14 sons. We also agreed to have it twice a year.
c. MENS FELLOWSIP
We begun a rare but powerful ministry of men in Mbarara. By December, we had 18 men who registered to attend the fellowships every Saturday. The fellowship started in power that most men invited their friends. We began the year with preparatory meetings, a fellowship and a football match with our sons. All the programs have been well attended. As a result of the above initiative, one of the men had a wedding. We were even privileged to pray a blessing for the marriages.
