The Call Uganda – May 1, 2010

Bruce Wilson noted back in December that Lou Engle’s The Call might be in Uganda sometime in May of 2010. According to The Call Uganda’s website, the event will be held in Kampala on May 1.

The purposes of the organizers are spelled out on the site:

It is intended to awaken and revive the young and the old, men and women, church and family, government and the public and to fight vices eating away at our society.  We shall all join our hearts across tribal, political, denominational, and generational boundaries, to cry to God to help us with the challenges in our country such as:

* The heightened political tensions and wrangles in the country, especially as we go towards the 2011 general elections

* The increasing level of social evils in our society, some which are threatening our values and lifestyles e.g.

o Witchcraft and human sacrifice

o Homosexuality and increased immorality

o Disasters and the resultant suffering of the people

o The decay of morals and infrastructure of our city Kampala

* The sins and shortcomings that have been happening in the body of Christ, shaming the name of the Lord and discouraging God’s people (REV. 3: 1 – 3)

* The evil practices being committed with impunity by those in public offices especially the widespread corruption and misappropriation of funds

* The destiny of our youth and children who are confused by our deteriorating value system

This post is informational at this point. I hope to add additional commentary either here or in another post.

  1. sigh

    The results are so predictable. Folks are going to die. And Engel will be Surprised! and Shocked! and claim that he had nothing to do with it.

  2. Well, Lyn it should come as no suprise that the good Arch Bishop, The Most Rev. Dr. Luke Orombi endorses it. He comes from the “low church” breed of Anglicanism. The local province of Anglicanism is not homogeneous in style of delivery. Even within the synod of Bishops and retired clergy some were not “comfortable” with his pro-bill stance to begin with, some signed the petition against the bill, forcing him to change his stance belatedly. And as for Pastor Gary Skinner, he’s not prone to advocacy or the media spotlight, he’s got the Langas for that.

  3. I am a bit surprised given predominantly pentacostal nature of ‘the call’ that Bishop Orombi supporting it. Ugandan Spiritual Leaders Endorsements:

    Bishop Simon Peter Emiau – Chairman Evangelical Fellowship of Uganda

    His Grace Luke Henry Orombi – Archbishop of Church of Uganda

    Pastor Jotham Mutebi – Chairman Full Gospel Churches of Uganda

    Pastor Titus Oundo – Chairman Diliverance Churches of Uganda

    Apostle John Mulinde – World Trumpet Mission

    Apostle Jackson Ssenyonga – Christian Life Ministries

    Pastor Gary Skinner – Watoto (formerly Kampala Pentecostal) Church

    Apostle Joseph Ssewadda – General Overseer of Born Again Federation

    Peter Asiimwe – Uganda Evangelical Mission Agency

    Pastor Fred Wantaate – Coordinator for Pentecostal Golden Jubilee – Full Gospel Church

    Langa’s pastor is there, Gary Skinner. I wonder if they will follow Engle and seek to cast out demons from gays &/or lesbians. Jo Anna Watson of TouchingHearts International is helping with The Call Uganda:

    TouchingHearts Int. is partnering with World Trumpet Mission to organize and host TheCall Uganda in Kampala on May 1st, 2010. The Call is a divinely initiated cross-denominational solemn assembly gathering the people to corporate worship, prayer and fasting to return to the Lord with all our hearts.

    We believe we can see Uganda changed as the Lord pours out His Spirit and brings refreshing to the broken, destitute and the weary across the land. For more information or to donate, please see TheCall Uganda website by clicking the link or by contacting us directly.

    I’d think that Julius Oyet who is associated with the Transformations/7Mountains/College of Prayer(?) people would be somehow associated with it.
