This made us a legally recognized organization in Uganda. Then three years later we applied for and received our registration as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), in 2017.

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
