Uganda Bible Institute (UBI) Dedication, July 20, 2006

Ligon Duncan
We thank God for our friend Amos Magezi and the good folk of Uganda Bible Institute. And there is big news. Amos together with other staff members are now busily preparing for the dedication of UBI, scheduled for July 20, 2006. This is going to be a great day in the history of UBI and the Church of Uganda as a whole. On this day, the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, The Most Reverend Dr. Henry Luke Orombi will dedicate the Institute and lay the foundation stone of their main building. The USA partners will participate in the occasion.

A team from First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, MS, USA led by Ruling Elder Jeffrey Rickels, will be at the ceremony (First, Jackson has provided significant funding of this effort to foster and further the ministerial training of evangelical Anglicans and others in Uganda). Amos Magezi, who heads up UBI is an RTS graduate, and a very close friend of our own Derek Thomas. One of the highlights of this year's Twin Lakes Fellowship was Amos leading the worship service at which Derek preached. Their mutual Christian affection and esteem was evident to all on that occasion, and a great encouragement to us.
