Thirteenth Sabbath Offering - 1st Qtr. 2023
East Central Africa Division
It is recorded that the first Seventh-day Adventist to enter Uganda was E. C. Enns, a German missionary working at Suji in the Pare region of Tanzania (then Tanganyika) who entered the country from South Nyanza, Kenya, in 1906. However, work did not begin in Uganda until more than 20 years later, in 1927. This long delay was most likely due to the local prevailing political and religious unrest in the region.
Adventist missionaries entering Uganda found that it was already zoned among Anglican Protestant missionaries, Catholic missionaries, and Muslims. Accordingly, they were sent to Nchwanga and were expected to fail because they were sent into a disturbed area and the people of this area were naturally suspicious of anything coming from Kampala and Buganda. By providence, Adventists were able to establish a mission station in Nchwanga in 1927.
