As tension continues to flare in various parts of the country, Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) executive director Jennifer Semakula Musisi has urged Christians that God will transform Uganda brick-by-brick “as He promised in Ezekiel 36:33-36.”
She made the above remarks while addressing Born-again Christians at Life Church – Namasuba on Sunday.
In line with the Church’s running sermon series — “Living Wise, Wisdom For Everyday Life”, Jennifer Musisi shared on transformation and how each Christian at whatever level can loop in and make their lasting positive contribution to the advancement of the city and country.
She told congregants to remains faithful in prayer, working in righteousness and obedience to the purposes of God.
“We have to purpose and be ready in righteousness. A call to righteousness is a call to faithfulness, love for one another and integrity in whatever God has entrusted us with if we will see His promises come to fruition in our lives and country,” she said, according to a statement by KCCA.
The Church, initially named Reaching Unto Nations (RUN) Ministries was first founded with a purpose to train pastors that had not acquired formal Bible training due to the war insurgency that was prevalent in Uganda prior to 1986.
Later, it became imperative to provide a church home for the young men and women who journeyed with them being trained in RUN Institute. In October of 1988, RUN Bible Church (RBC) held their first service in a high school amphi-theater in Kampala.
With renewed vision and ministry focus later on, the church was re-named Life Church, Uganda embracing the vision of being a healthy, growing and overflowing church. In 2014, Life Church opened her second campus at Kawuku along Entebbe Road.
The Church made what Jennifer described as “an immense” contribution towards the KCCA schools.
KCCA this year estimated that it requires close to sh450b to have all its primary schools fully renovated.
“We need partners to help us overcome the challenges which our schools are currently facing. We need billions close to sh450bn,” Ms Musisi explained.
