Theological Education in Uganda

“Please pray for our Uganda Baptist Seminary Team, as we have had recent opportunities to counsel our Ugandan brothers and sisters on the topic of marriage. The issue of finding the biblical standard of marriage amid the cultural, civic, religious, pagan, as well as old and new wedding traditions is not easy. The consequences of those confusions often result in confusion in marriage. Cultural traditions of having a dowry and also a ceremony with families agreeing to allow their children to be married are complicated and expensive. Adding a wedding ceremony and reception to that is an additional cost that so many are unable to afford. The significance of a covenant-promise is often lost. Pray for us as we help church leaders and pastors to lead out regarding marriage and as we counsel others to speak with gracious truth. Please pray for the ones seeking counsel, asking that they will be humble to hear guidance from the Lord.”
