What Drew Is Doing

I am working as IJM's Church and Community Relations Fellow. This involves travelling throughout Kampala (the capital city) working with civic and church leaders to help seek justice together. I often teach and preach in local churches or at community events regarding the biblical call to seek justice. I also work to strengthen the existing relationships IJM has with the community, as well as form new ones. There is a great need in Uganda for justice to be sought for those who have been taken advantage of and the church and government have a pivotal role to play.
