Seb has always had an interest in Africa, and as a boy was fascinated by the continent. ‘From a young age God placed something in me for Africa, at that stage I didn’t know what it was.’
80% of Uganda is engaged in agriculture. The healthy economy of the 1960s was crippled in 1972 by the expulsion of the Asian business community, and then virtually destroyed by tyranny and wars. It has steadily improved since 1992. Under previous government regimes there were restrictions on persecuted Christians, but there is now freedom of religion.
Seb first served with AIM as a short term mission partner in 2010. He spent a year in Mbarara, Uganda, where God instilled in him a heart for young people. He has served with AIM long term since 2011, first in discipling young people until becoming the Short Term Coordinator for Central Region in August 2014. From September 2015 Seb has been working as Central Region’s Personnel Coordinator, based in their office in Kampala.

“Last week I went to visit some missionaries with AIM in Moroto, northeast Uganda. Spread across the north-eastern part of Uganda are the Karimojong; almost one million people live in Karamoja district. They are a people marginalised within Uganda and largely unreached with the good news of Jesus. It is a dry and thirsty land, physically and spiritually. We have a team starting in Moroto in February next year, and another one in a place called Kotido. It was great to see where they will be serving and the many opportunities that there are to work with the Karimojong. We pray that we will see the churches that exist strengthened and the Karimojong that are cut off from the good news drink deeply from the living water.” Please join us in this prayer.

“Life is better lived together. This has become more and more evident to me over the last few months as I’ve began to build new relationships in Kampala and had the privilege to travel to many places. We’re meant to live in community, to look out for one another, care for and love each other… It’s been a privilege to travel to different places and see what this looks like in different cultures…. In Chad they sit around a tray of food and each person dips their fingers in, among the IK they sit together in community meetings to discuss things, in the DRC the church gathered on a rock to celebrate together. In Africa a common saying is ‘I am because we are’. Often I hear a Ugandan friend when I ask him how he is he replies, ‘we’re ok’. I am because we are. My prayer is that I would let go of my selfishness and truly embrace doing life together, that as Paul says, I would gladly spend and be expended for you. I pray that I would gladly spend and be expended on behalf of those who I live among here, my family and friends in the UK and the Short-termers who I serve in my work.”
