Deacon Larry Oney, president of Hope and Purpose Ministries, was welcomed to Uganda, East Africa with singing and prayer at the hotel. The group that greeted Deacon Oney was made up of his intercessory team and a local businessman who owns a local television station (Hope TV). Sister Salome, who is a sister of a priest from the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux in Louisiana, traveled from her village four hours away with her mother to greet Deacon Oney and welcome him to Uganda. This is normal African culture to welcome a visitor in such a fashion.
Tomorrow, Deacon Oney and his team will head out to the South Sudanese refugee camp, Kiryandongo Refugee Camp, along the border. Please keep Deacon Oney and the team in your prayers as we continue the mission of Hope and Purpose Ministries.
