Running the Race: Envisioning 2016
Each year, the New Hope Uganda staff gather together for Envisioning, the conference aiming to set the tone and theme for the new year. This year marked the 25th Envisioning, which occurred from January 13th to 15th and 18th to 19th.
The theme for 2016 draws upon Hebrews 12:1-2: “Running the Race Set Before Us.” Over the five days of the conference, the organizers led a variety of sessions and times of sharing with the staff.

Please be joining us in prayer this weekend for our sons and daughters in the Primary 7 class!

EYO Trip Report
It may not seem like football, mud, the Gospel, VBS, and gardening all have much to do with one another. But for Emmanuel Youth Outreach (NHU’s youth ministry), each of these tends to play a part in their missions trips.
This year’s main outreach took 26 EYO members, mostly current and past NHU sons and daughters, to the area around Lyantonde, several hours away from Kasana Children’s Centre. The trip ran from August 29 to…Learn More
