A 16-strong team from Holy Trinity, Woodburn, Carrickfergus, arrived home from Uganda on July 20 after a two week mission trip with the charity Fields of Life.
The team, led by parishioner Carol Mulligan, left Dublin on July 6 and travelled to the rural area of Gulu via Addis Ababa, Entebbe and Kampala.
Among their tasks was the completion of a kitchen for the newly built school in the village. They also led Bible Clubs and delivered training in health and hygiene, sports and crafts.
The team had the opportunity to visit the slums with Pastor Deo and was involved in commissioning Bore Wells on behalf of the Fittis family and the congregation of Holy Trinity Woodburn. Adam Fittis had the honour of being part of the commissioning of the well in memory of his grandfather Tommy.
Accompanying Carol to Gula were: Davy Mulligan (co-leader); Clare Mulligan, Lauren Baird, Drew Buchanan, Callum Burnside, Adam Fittis, Owen McAuley, Fiona Moody, David Sprott, Avril Waller, Clive Waller, Christopher Wootton, Helen Wootton, Vic Wootton and Elaine Wright – Elaine works in the Connor Diocesan Office at Church House.
