A Ugandan that likes Country Music?

Today was spent working around Koro farm; there was plenty of painting, planting vegetables and grass to go around. You know perhaps these “chores” don’t seem to prove helpful at first glance but when I sit back and think of our ministry to the people in Gulu, one word comes to mind, encouragement. That is […]
