An update from Renee Lick in Uganda - July 19, 2010
After two days of orientation in Chicago, the NCF Global Project team of nine students and two staff are leaving for Uganda on Friday, July 16, 2010.
Dr. Barbara White, RN, CNS, President of Nurses Christian Fellowship International, from Denver, CO reports that in February nurses met in Nepal for that region's very first NCFI meeting.
The two suicide bombings that killed more than 70 people in Kampala, Uganda, during the World Cup finals on Sunday have created great concern for our NCF Uganda Global Project.
On July 14 a group of nine nursing students and two NCF staff leave for the NCF-Uganda Global Project. "This will be a transformational experience for each of them," said Connie Jarlsberg, NCF Missions staff who is leading the trip.
While we await the Supreme Court's decision about religious freedom for Christian student groups like NCF, we take heart from persecuted nursing students at the University of Gambia.
We are praising God for the team of students selected for the NCF Global Project to Uganda this summer!
God @ work...
