I am writing to give you the necessary information for our upcoming trip to train pastors and church leaders in Kampala, Uganda during November 7-17, 2018. We will be taking two teams of teachers in order to train two groups of students in separate locations. Each team will have two or three teachers, with each teacher having assigned material to teach at scheduled times. The teaching will occur four full days, Monday – Thursday (Nov 12-15), 9 AM to 5 PM, and half a day on Friday (Nov 16), 9 AM to 12 PM. We are estimating 200+ students to register for the fourth module, Church History.
We will be using the nine modules laid out in “Hearts, Heads, and Hands”by M. David Sills. You will need a hard copy of this book and possibly the Kindle version as well. You can obtain a hard copy from Amazon.com or from our office if you do not have one already. The Kindle version would be helpful for copying and pasting the material into a Word document as you prepare a teaching notebook.

Our team will fly from Houston on Wednesday, November 7, and arrive in Kampala on Friday, Nov 9. After some rest on Saturday, you will have the option of preaching or attending worship in a church on Sunday. We begin our trip home on Friday afternoon, November 16, arriving in Houston on Saturday afternoon. Therefore, you should only be away from your church for one Sunday.
