Butaga OPCU

A few Sundays ago, we worshiped at the village church, Butaga Orthodox Presbyterian Church of Uganda.  

This church is a struggling small church in the hills of Mt. Wanale.

A very small, but very precious group of believers.

One family wanted their son baptized.  It was a blessing to see the father taking initiative during the baptism and wanting to hold his baby for it. (Often, baptism is seen as a "mother's thing" and the fathers won't come to the front apart from being asked)

After the service, one of the young ladies of the church, Doreen, age 14, gave a bit of her testimony.  She comes from a Muslim family, but she herself is a Christian.  Because of her faith, her family has not supported her very much.  At the end of the video, she tells how the Muslim leaders have even told her that if her parents die, she shouldn't help to bury them.  She is a spiritual orphan, but has found a family in Christ.  We praise the Lord for her faith and joy in spite of her difficult life.
