Special to the Tribune

The Reverend Pamela Schmaling of the Anglican Church of the Holy Spirit recently returned from Uganda, Africa, where she was the keynote speaker at a 24-hour Christian revival event sponsored by the Bethel Church in Kampala.

The event was an all-night revival attended by some 5,000 people.

Schmaling was in Uganda as a guest of Irene Marjorie Manjeri, who is the pastor and founder of Bethel Healing Ministries. She was joined by other dignitaries, including the Speaker of Parliament, the Honorable Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga.

Along with preaching, Schmaling visited the Bethel Orphanage, where 40 abandoned children now have a home. Due to lack of income, it is common for children to be abandoned on the city streets. Bethel Orphanage provides these children with housing, food, schooling and medical care.

Pamela also had the opportunity to meet and spend time with the Honorable Edward Kiwanuka Ssekandi, vice president of Uganda. She was given a tour of government projects where local people are trained in agriculture and crafts so they eventually will be able to earn a living.

"It is remarkable that in this country of great need that 84 percent of the people are Christians," Schmaling said. "Everywhere I went I found the people to be warm and friendly. In spite of great hardships, these people smile and embrace God with openness and joy."

From 5-7 p.m. tonight, Rev. Schmaling will share highlights and pictures of her trip at Noble Hall, located at 8123 E. Manley Drive, Prescott Valley. It is open to the public. Pizza will be served.

Please RSVP at 928-642-0675.
