FAST FACTS—Please Pray!

· The average Ugandan lives on less than $1.80 a day.
· 38% of children chronically undernourished or stunted.
· 30% are illiterate.
· only 25% of young people remain in school past grade 6.
· There are 2.5 million orphans, including 1.2 million orphaned from AIDS.

Did you know that nearly 50% of the population in Uganda is under the age of 14? Children are the most vulnerable victims to corruption. Thousands have been abducted for use as child soldiers in occult-powered militia groups or forced to become sex slaves. Also numbing poverty deprives many children—including up to two million orphans—of care, finances for education and hope.
Pray especially for street children, who are most numerous in Kampala, and for children living in the north where wide-spread terror and countless atrocities have occurred.

The Church in Uganda has seen both wonderful breakthroughs and immense obstacles. There are numerous divisions in the Church, and the proliferation of independent and single-congregation denominations makes true unity a massive challenge. Syncretistic practices and false teachings are multiplying even as the Church grows.
Pray for reconciliation amoung churches and that the Holy Spirit might lead Christians into all truth and that all falsehood might be cast aside.

The majority of Ugandans identify themselves as Christian, but materialistic attitudes, polygamous practices and non-biblical worldviews – all affecting lifestyle – are common. For many, being “Christian” simply means not being Muslim.
Pray for renewal that would turn nominal Christians into true disciples of Jesus Christ.
