Church Expands to Lugazi.

Since its inception in Uganda in the early 90's, the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has continued registering tremendous growth in the country and region as a whole.

On the 9th of December 2012, yet another branch of the Church was organized in the town of Lugazi, a small town which principally grows sugarcane. Lugazi is located 57 kms from Kampala on the Jinja highway.

Charles Adungul was called as the head of this newly organised congregation.

The prayer of the newly formed branch members is for the Lord’s help to bring more souls to Heavenly Father’s Plan of Happiness.

Speaking at the organisation of the branch, the regional director of the church who oversees its missionary efforts  in Uganda, Ethiopia, Rwanda, South Sudan and other nearby countries, Eric Jackson, said, "The most important thing that Jesus could do was to establish His church upon the earth.  He is involved today in the beginning of this new Lugazi Branch. In the Sermon of the Mount, the Savior taught, it is what is in your heart that counts and how you treat your fellow man.  When someone asks you to go a mile, go with him twain.  Teach the Doctrine of Christ.  With the love of God in your hearts, there are no happier people.  Educate and support each other.  He chose us, and then we chose Him.  In our second estate we need to choose Him again.  Love your neighbors by sharing the Gospel.”

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints has close to thirty thousand congregations world wide.
