Namutamba Community Church!
This past year, Namutamba has seen many great changes!
Namutamba is part of ARM’s Church-to-Church Partnership program, and as a result they recieved a visit from theitr American Chruch partners this past August. As a result, they were able to start and complete a new church building for Namutamba Community Church, along with a new home for the church pastor.
In addition, their church partners asssisted them with a campus beautification project as well as ministering to the children in the Namutamba CDP program.
Thank you to our partners who constantly pray and support us! God has indeed been so faithful!
