Lira, Uganda

The turning point was when a friend invited me to try Alpha that was running in our school.

Young people are asking big questions. Alpha has come in as a tool dealing greatly with these questions. As a result, many are coming into a relationship with God. This has helped a lot in transforming the lives of youths in Uganda.

One such story is Jessica's;

"I came in a relationship with God after attending Alpha at Fountainhead Institute Lira, Northern Uganda. I was aware of God’s existence but I had never thought nor experienced his love. I neither knew how to pray nor read the bible. All I knew was that there was God. The idea of having God as a friend was a strange one. The turning point was when a friend invited me to try Alpha that was running in our school."

I had a great moment at the introductory session and decided to sign up to attend. One particular talk that touched me so much was entitled, ‘What about the church?’ From it, I felt God calling me to Himself and I responded.

Since then I have experienced God's love. I am enjoying my relationship with God through prayer and reading the bible. I've stopped drinking and I love to tell every one about God. I am completely changed.
