Namisindwa Presbyterian church, Uganda - Encounter - Morris and Peter


Bugisu Region in the East of Uganda is particularly known for landslides and death as a result of the same problems. It’s also known as Elgon region due to mount Elgon which is a tourist attraction in that Area.

The natives of that land are Bagisu known for their annual circumcision festivities. Where every youth has to be publicly circumcised to prove that he is man enough to face the world. They are such a traditional tribe that during the season of circumcision, also most everything comes to a standstill. The funny part is during the initiation ceremony where everybody has to swear allegiance to a demon called Masaba including those who are Christians.

We believe Lead Like Jesus is a planned event with intention to raise leaders who can counter the cultural and traditional beliefs that keep weakening the church.
