In June/July of 2015, Pastor BJ took a group of youth and adults on a two-week mission trip to Uganda to partner with Rev. Davis Matovu and Soul Fishing Ministries. The group consisted of John & Brandon Miller, Viki & Hannah Smith, Kathy Weaver, Janelle Martin and Erisawe Briere. In addition to helping with Nexus graduations and dedicating a new church and clean water well, the team participated in activities such as medical clinics and school presentations.
Pastor BJ and Joe Fort traveled to Uganda and Kenya from October 5-23, 2014. They taught and preached in multiple sites, presided at a Nexus graduation, opened a new teaching location, and worked with a group of Anglicans in Mombasa, Kenya. Pastor BJ and Joe partnered with Soul Fishing Ministries and Rev. Davis Matovu. Learn more about Soul Fishing Ministries and their work in the communities of Uganda here.
