Brent Messimer is the founder and director of Rescue Innocence, the topic of last week’s mission post on ESI. Brent is also the previous Director of Evangelism for Uganda NOW Outreach and continues to serve them as a volunteer. The Crossing supports his work as a missionary serving in these interrelated ministries. He provides this guest post to give us an idea of the ministry in Uganda:
A prescription for the perfect mission week serving in Uganda:
2 excited volunteers [Allen & Sue] and a [soon to be former] Uganda NOW Outreach director (me), two villages to work in (Makindu and Busagazi), 300 toothbrushes for the kids, over $1000 of donated stationary, around $500 makeup products, $300 worth of soccer balls, small goals, footballs, and Frisbee’s for the sports ministry, rice and meat (the first time this year our kids ate meat), and a lot of hours preparing lessons and sermons.
