Feeding the Hungry
“I was hungry, and you fed me.” Rodgers Namuswa (right) and Bernard Meenda (left) take these words from Matthew 25 seriously. They deliver food on a regular basis to the needy in the area around Namwianga. Austin (center) is the garden manager and makes sure that fresh vegetables are available for food relief efforts. On the day this picture was taken, Rodgers and Bernard were headed to Kalomo Hospital. They conduct a weekly devotional/Bible study with those who are in the Women’s Shelter and then distribute food.
Student Barber Helps Prisoners
First-year college student Munyinda Akafuna made his first visit to Kalomo Prison in June as part of an outreach group. He was touched by the plight of the prisoners and wanted to help them. On his next visit, Munyinda brought along his hair clippers. With the warden’s permission, he gave haircuts to some of the prisoners. His efforts were noticed. One prisoner sought out the outreach leader and told him, “No other churches come to visit the prison, but the Church of Christ comes week after week and brings gifts. Now you are giving haircuts. Your works have convinced me. What do I need to do? I am ready.”
