Uganda Water Well Mission


Water Well Mission: May 2019


With your blessings St. John Lutheran Church returned to Uganda, Africa in May of this year in effort to drill six water wells. Chris Knippa traveled to Uganda to oversee the water mission effort and share the good news of Christ Jesus! Here’s what Chris had to say about this year’s mission trip:


We successfully drilled six water wells in villages that were suffering greatly in need of clean water and of hearing God’s Gospel message of love, hope and forgiveness.  It is impossible to truly know how many were helped, but we witnessed hundreds come to know Jesus Christ for the first time in these villages. It was amazing to see the Spirit of God touch His children in search of lasting hope that they could hold onto. Each village had over 2,000 residents that are now being served by these six water wells. PRAISE THE LORD. Thank you SJLC for all your support of this church effort and to God be all the glory!!
