Following 28 years of ministry in the Philippines, God called Laura Bonney and me to Uganda to begin a ministry similar to that in which we were involved during the last 9 years in the Philippines—a church-based school outreach called VOICE (Values Orientation In Classroom Education) which uses church volunteers. Partnering with Scripture Union Uganda, the program has been named "VOICE Africa." We are "Africanizing" the Philippine values-focused, Bible-based visualized curriculum with its sixth and final lesson being a clear presentation of the Gospel. Churches are being encouraged to send trained volunteers from their church to teach a weekly Values Education Class in near-by schools as an outreach into their community. Thus far six modules/values have been "Africanized" and test taught--Truth, Honesty, Forgiveness, Moral Purity, Self-Control, and Obedience. The first three modules (Truth, Honesty and Forgiveness) have been published on three age levels (Lower Primary, Upper Primary, and Secondary). God's evident hand of blessing is seen in the many positive comments from students, parents, school teachers/administrators, and volunteer teachers…and in reports of students coming to Christ as Savior. Pray with us that many churches throughout Uganda and East Africa will see this strategic opportunity of reaching the next generation and get involved. Pray, too, for God’s provision of funding for publishing.
