This past year, the congregation raised $10,150 to build a clean water well in Nabigingo, Uganda. Now YOU have an opportunity to travel to Uganda and represent Shepherd of the Lakes at the Well Dedication.
Well dedications are very special events for everyone involved. Villagers crowd the area wearing hand-made dresses and hats. The women sing songs to celebrate the momentous occasion. Old men cry at the sight of the first drops of clean water being pumped into a child’s cup. A lifelong dream has become reality. Diseases contracted from unsafe water are no longer at the forefront of every worrying mother’s mind. Commemorating this day is truly something to behold.
There are 3 potential mission trip dates: July 7-20, July 21-August 3, or November 2-16. Trip cost is $2,200 plus airfare, and there are scholarships available to help defray some of the expense.
