  1. Richard A. Menees says:

    We have known Canon Eridard and Jane for 25 years, ever since God placed us as missionaries in neighboring parishes in Zimbabwe in the eighties and ninties. His young son Moses saw and ate his first grape in our home in Banket. It was marvelous to invite this articulate Christian to teach confirmation retreats in our Shona congregations. He is a humble man of God who has worked his way through a variety of leadership roles in this diocese which we were a part of as connonically resident clergy before the ACNA was formed. I urge your prayers for Jane and Eridard and Luweero diocese where he will follow the long and stable episcopate of Bishop Kisseke.

    So far away, but the same Lord and the same faith.

    May the Lord bless and strengthen the church in Uganda.
