The rebels were known as the Lord’s Revolutionary Army but they had nothing to do with our Lord Jesus Christ. They terrorized villages with the most inhumane of practices, kidnapping and killing villagers at random. In Uganda, at the height of this rebel war, we decided to accept an invitation to hold a Pastor’s Seminar in Kitgum.
Communication has always been a problem for travelers, but especially so for those heading into the jungles of the world. A few years ago I bought a new cell phone with international service for an upcoming trip to Uganda. I knew that on this trip I wanted to stay in touch because in order to get to the seminar location where 300 pastors and leaders were waiting for us, we had to travel by van through active rebel territory.
