Uganda

Uganda was our first overseas Missions outreach. Richard visited in 2006, again in 2007 with Pastor Greg Alford from Christchurch and on his own again in 2010.

We have a small team translating Bro. Branham's Messages into the area's Luganda language. These (plus English and many other language translations) are available to download free from Cloverdale Bibleway's Message Hub website in Canada. The translation team is based at Kaliro about a little over a one hour drive from Jinja on Lake Victoria. There are many Message Churches in the area. Although many people can speak English a lot cannot read it.

Uganda Overview

Uganda is a land locked country of about 30 million people. It has Kenya to the east and the Congo to the west. As in many African countries the Message is well established but support is needed both financially and by making personal visits.
