LIRA. Dr Ted Wilson, the world leader of Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church, has commended President Museveni’s administration for enabling freedom of worship to flourish in the country.
Dr Ted made the remarks at Amuca SDA Secondary School in Lira District on Friday. That day, hundreds of SDA believers braved the scotching sun to have a glimpse of their world leader for the first time.
Dr Ted, who flew to Lira aboard a military helicopter under heavy security, commended Museveni for his great role in promoting Christianity and religious freedom in the country.
This, he said has encouraged and made it possible for leaders of prominent religions in the world to visit Uganda during his leadership.
“I urge you to pray for President Yoweri Museveni so that God can continue guiding him in his leadership and pray for this country so that you continue enjoying the present peace,” he said, adding that,
“People in other countries are suffering and crying for peace, so continue praying to God so that peace can prevail.”
He said Uganda is blessed with natural beauty and its people are very kind and hardworking.
“I have been to different countries, but here (Uganda) is exceptional; your country is blessed with beautiful sceneries and natural resources.
There is enough rainfall and water bodies and the people are very kind and strong believers of God,” he told the gathering.
Dr Ted further encouraged SDA faithful and other Christians to be ambassadors of Jesus Christ during this trying moment and prepare the way for Christ’s second coming.
The minister of State for ICT and Communication, Ms Aidah Nantaba, accompanied the SDA leader.
The Uganda SDA Union leader, Bishop Daniel Maate along with leaders from Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania and South Sudan among others also attended the function.
