We will be leading a mission trip to Uganda, Africa in June 2014 with our New Hope family!

Uganda is located on the equator in east Africa. Even with the tropical climate temperatures are rarely above 85 degrees. Winston Churchill described Uganda as the "Pearl of Africa," and "From end to end a beautiful garden." It is true the views can be breathtaking, but the people of Uganda will steal your heart. The 35 million people of Uganda are known to be "Africa's friendliest country."

With all its beauty Uganda is not without its ugliness. 35% of the people live on $1.25 a day or less. Uganda has the second highest fertility rate in the world with most families consisting of 5-7 children. Almost 50% of the Ugandan population is under the age of 15. HIV/AIDS, malaria, unsafe drinking water, parasites, and malnutrition cause Uganda to be ranked in the bottom 10% of countries when it comes to life expectancy.

Undoubtedly there is great need in Uganda. God wants the people of Uganda to be loved and cared for by using us to meet the needs of the people he places in front of us.

"When we see God send people come and put in their time, their money, and their lives we know God loves us." Dr. Moses (Ugandan Doctor)
