Teams share Christ through construction projects, compassion ministries, and more

Uganda (MNN) ― What does Uganda have in common with the U.S.? Probably more than you think.
"You have some people who believe they're Christians because they're good people, which is really no different than here in America," said Julie Boyd with Lakeland, Florida-based Orphan's Heart.
Boyd recently led a team of 13 to minister and serve in the village of Kamonkoli, working side-by-side with Hines Ugandan Ministries. On their week-long trip, believers ministered to the spiritual, physical, and practical needs of widows and orphans. One of the team's goals was to show villagers how to live as true Christ-followers.
"Many times they will raise their hand and say, 'I've made a decision.' But we want to make sure they understand that decision," Boyd explained. One of the ways they accomplish this is by sharing the message of Ephesians 2:8 -- "It's by grace that we're saved and not of works."
