Fad or Faith?

An excerpt from Fad or Faith?
By Lisa Fish, Uganda
January–March 2011

On the last day of school, we held a special chapel for the baptisms. The school family and many parents watched as a local missionary pastor, John; HIS principal, Keeley; HIS board chair, Tim; and the father of one of the baptizes and another pastor baptized the 14 students, four from the elementary school joining 10 from the secondary school.

After the service, we divided across the field and prayed for each of the kids. There were tears, joy, and an overflow of love as they considered the witness this was to others and the meaning this had for their own walks of faith. Altogether, it was a wonderful testimony to non-Christians and Christians alike.

ACT: Heritage International School (HIS) is making a difference in the lives of young people in Uganda. You can, too. HIS is in need of Christian men and women willing to teach and share the love of Christ. Is this your mission field? To learn more, contact recruiting@wgm.org.
