In the past, Trinity has partnered with GLOW by paying for 10 girls to go to school for 3 years. GLOW hosts an annual conference to strengthen and inspire GLOW women to grow spiritually and emotionally. Our team from Trinity Church will be travel to Uganda from November 30-December 12, and will help lead this conference by speaking, sharing testimonies, and leading discipleship classes. It will also serve as an exploratory trip to see how we can best partner with GLOW Uganda for years to come.
If you would like to contribute to our Uganda Mission’s project, we are trying to raise $5000. All money will be given toward the women’s conference, basic supplies and needs, and other projects needing funding in the community.

My family has been part of the Trinity church body for about nine years, and we were drawn to it partly because of how active it was in the local community (via Gateway) as well as in missions (via the Global Impact Team). This trip offers an opportunity to forge new ties between Trinity and GLOW Uganda. For me personally, this is also a long awaited chance to be back in Africa. Back in the early 2000s I lived and worked in three separate African countries -- Togo, Benin, and Chad -- and also visited several others. While every country on the continent is different, all of them are fascinating. I'm looking forward to seeing what new things God is doing on the ground at the GLOW Skills Development Center, and how Trinity can provide encouragement to the young folks being reached there.
Our family (husband Mark and 4 boys) have been attending Trinity Church for almost 20 years! While I had the opportunity to assist in the children's and women's ministry I have always had a desire to go on a short-term mission trip. I have a passion for empowering women which makes me excited to volunteer with GLOW Uganda organization . While I love adventures, I am really looking forward to seeing how God will work in me to bless & encourage this community of African women.
I have been attending Trinity for about 25 years. I met my husband at Trinity and have been married 20 years. We both are committed to supporting missions work and I am drawn towards helping poor and marginalized peoples. I am excited about the impact GLOW is making among marginalized girls in Uganda giving them hope both in the Lord and in daily life by teaching them how to provide for themselves and their families. I hope to learn more about the ministry and how we can partner with their work in a way that glorifies God.
My family and I have been attending and serving at Trinity for many years, and we love this church and the heart they have for serving the Lord by serving the people in the church, in the community and throughout the world.
Meeting Ammabel Rushaju, the founder of GLOW, praying with her, hearing her heart and vision for the women in Uganda, and her heart for caring and sharing the Lord with them immediately captured my attention and wooed me to the Lord in a new and different way. While going to Uganda is completely out of my comfort zone, I know the Lord has called me there to be a part of the work for His Kingdom. I am excited and scared, but I could not feel more honored to serve the Lord in a way I never expected.
