“Your whole life you’ve been surrounded by people who look like you, talk like you, and even think about God like you. Assumptions you’ve subconsciously held- from your definitions of poverty, to what being a Christian even means. It’s time to ask big questions. it’s time to marvel at everything from the hospitality of your Ugandan hosts, to the magnificent hills and valleys of the Rwandan countryside. Participate in Ugandan community and learn much about your own identity in the process. Be exposed to the social and economic injustic present in East Africa, explore the Biblical perspective of injustice and then wrestle with faithful Christian responses. Your semester at the Uganda Studies Program will be time spent in society, nature, and spirit in the raw. Be ready to be changed.”
