June 30, 2011
A group of 22 construction and medical team workers from Calvary Baptist Church, Russellville, in Franklin Baptist Association traveled to Uganda June 2–10 to work with Life in Christ orphanage in Kampala.
The medical team treated almost 500 people, while the construction team began building a shelter to be used for worship and meal times on the grounds of the orphanage.
Pastor Wade Wallace preached at a crusade in Kampala, and around 200 people responded to the invitation. At 80 years old, the eldest member of the team distributed about 200 Bibles to members of a new church and residents of the orphanage. Team members also provided blankets collected by church members to each orphan and teacher and support personnel.
