GHI Project Visits & Local Students on a Mission in Uganda

Nan Muhovich, serves on the GHI board of directors and as professor at North Central University, shares her recap of the trip to Uganda:

May 23, 2023 I left Minneapolis airport for a 3 1/2 week trip to Uganda with 10 North Central University American Sign Language students, professors, and professional interpreters. Our goal? To learn Ugandan Deaf culture and sign language so that we could spend ten days with high school Deaf students in Mbale Secondary School for the Deaf.

We brought 8 flash drives with over 100 Ugandan Sign Language Bible Stories, 4 laptops to show them on, and created numerous dramas, and songs to share with the young people. We wanted to communicate three things:

  • God created you and you have dignity.
  • God loves you.
  • God provides for you.

I also had a chance to connect with GHI projects: Mission Moving Mountains, Jesus Film Ministry, and Kimwanga Widow’s Project.

Thirty-four widows from the Kimwanga Widow’s project came out for lunch and expressed their joy and appreciation for the 30 goats that have been donated as micro businesses for their individual support. Sadly they reported that five widows had lost houses in last year’s storms. Those women are currently seeking shelter with relatives with the hopes of rebuilding their homes. Thankfully two houses have been rebuilt. The widows have shown their success in goat care with many goats having had kids, even twins, to supplement their income.

Feel inspired after a mission trip?
Exciting things you can do from home.


After a mission trip, you might have returned home with your heart on fire to make a difference. Seeing how much the world needs the Gospel and hope of Jesus, can really get people excited to do something radical.

Or maybe you know mission travel is not for you and you are ready to serve in a new way from home. If this is you, we are so grateful for your enthusiasm, your experience, and your willingness to serve.

There are countless opportunities to keep doing good from your hometown. With the Lord’s leading, you can live out your higher calling by realizing your God-given mission.
