Statement from the Bundibugyo Team

Dear Supporters/Family/Friends,

Over the past few days there have been many reports in the news of
conflict within western Uganda.  We would like to clarify a few things
as well as ask for prayer for the people of Uganda and our team.

We believe the series of events that began on Saturday, July 5, in the
western region was caused by tribally rooted tensions.  Even though we
never felt as though our mission (team) was a target, we made the
decision to remove ourselves from the area as the atmosphere in our
immediate area intensified.  We are thankful that God granted us the
grace to be evacuated to Fort Portal and remain safe, and we are
closely monitoring the situation in Bundibugyo.

Please pray for the local families in this western region who have
lost loved ones as a result of the fighting that has been taking
place.  Please pray against any fear in our hearts that has arisen due
to the intensity of what we have recently experienced.  Pray that we
would believe Proverbs 29:25 and put our trust in Him.  Lastly, please
pray for peace in Uganda and for wisdom for our team and organization
as we continue to assess the conditions in western Uganda at this

Serge Bundibugyo
