Greetings in Christ from Jinja, Uganda. Megan and I hope that you and the believers at Saint John’s are well. Thank you for your wonderful gift of support for the seminary here. Through the generosity of the people of Saint John's, more men will be trained to spread the gospel in Uganda and beyond.
Leaders of the Lutheran Church of Uganda along with members of the seminary management committee are working with engineers and builders in planning the completion of the chapel building on campus (see the photo, below). Once that plan is complete it will be submitted to the LCMS for final approval and the transfer of funds, including the $8,600 from Saint John’s.
During the week the chapel will be used for matins and evening prayer services, along with other programs. On weekends, there is a local congregation that meets here, currently in a lecture hall, that is looking forward to using the chapel as their permanent worship space.
I will send some pictures during construction so that your community can see more of what they are a part of. It is such a blessing that the people of Saint John’s are able to help in this ministry. Thank you again!
