Adversity on the Horizon
On Friday, June 24th, we invited ROWAN supporters to join us for an internal Zoom update on the mining crisis that threatens the region…
After her exploratory trip to Uganda in May, ROWAN Co-founder Kelsey Hargadine returned with stories of God’s hand in this situation as well as the details we needed in order to determine our next steps as an organization.
Here’s a note from Kelsey:
For those of you who were able to join me on Friday, thank you! It is so encouraging to share this powerful story of my recent trip to Uganda.
We are excited that we recorded it and want to send to you if you have not yet heard the testimony. It includes the current ROWAN story and ways in which you can continue to support/pray/volunteer/advocate with us. This testimony is TRULY remarkable…you don’t want to miss it!
Feel free to email me if you’d like to watch the video***!
Love to you ALL,
Among other updates shared in the video***, we found that the mining company will likely not affect our region for many more years… plus or minus a decade.
As scary as it feels, we know that these widows and orphans need our steadfast support now more than ever.
If you found out that your home might be torn down in 10 years, would you move out now? Of course not!
In the same way, we’re using this time to plan and prepare for the next chapter of ROWAN serving the vulnerable citizens of Uganda while advocating for the rights and proper treatment of the widows and orphans there, now.
