As we drove from Entebbe in southern Uganda, up to Gulu in the north we noticed great changes in the countryside. The wealth and prosperity of the south gave way to lots of undeveloped land and small huts clustered near the rough road that we traveled upon. We have been learning a bit about how the war in the north has impacted life around Gulu, especially the values, beliefs, and behaviors of the youth. We’ve been told that people learned in refuge and IDP camps (internally displaced persons) that life needs are provided for by outside sources, making work and accomplishment something that is considered hard and painful. There is little motivation to sustain themselves. The need is great for the current population to grab hold of life in Christ – inspiration, direction, and wisdom He can provide!
