School Mission 2013 by Tr. Asiimwe Alex 

Between Saturday 20th and 21st July 2013, the college held an internal mission under the theme “Clothe yourself with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the desires of the sinful nature’’ (Romans 13:14). We had marvellous time with our alumni, Rev. Francis Muhangi and Yedidia Nyakahangura who ministered to the students on Saturday night.

Rev. Francis Muhangi, who was the school chaplain some ten years back and is currently the head of the humanities department at Bishop Stuart University, spoke to the students about God’s mercies “which are new each day.” He spoke of how his patience and being humble to the Lord havebrought him greatness and urged students to resist the pressures of the flesh. 

Nyakahangura Yedidia, Head boy in 2007 and now a talk show host with Vision Group’s TV West, in an emotional testimony spoke of how Bishop McAllister College has made him what he is today. “I would never have had the opportunity to finish secondary life without Kyogyera. There was a time when I was the only student to be chased from my class for fees. On my way back home I was so much weighed down by sadness that I even contemplated taking my own life. I thought by throwing myself under the steamroller that was working on the road I would end my woes. Mercifully, some voice called and I was distracted. I have no way big enough to thank the Rector, Canon Jeffries, for securing me someone to sponsor me,” he said kneeling on the floor. Lilian Amanya, a nursing student at Mbarara University of Science and Technology, was one other speaker of the night session. She spoke comprehensively about sin in the adolescent world and also implored the students to throw away the robes of the sinful world and clothe themselves with Christ.

On Sunday, our very own Rev. Canon Paul Jeffries was the first preacher. He shed more light on the theme of the mission and explainedthe context of St. Paul’s letter to the Romans. He also tackled the danger of apathyand lethargy among Christians and urged students to resist these and put on the armour of light. “When we make reference to darkness here, we are not talking about it in the literal sense. We are talking about the devil and his evil ways. Paul is very clear about these ways. He warns us against orgies, carousing, sexual immorality and debauchery and jealousy. Now is the time to listen to Paul’s trumpet,” he said.


Rev. Canon Johnson Twinomujuni, the principal of Uganda Bible Institute, was the last speaker. He said he was going to order his sermon on five aspects. “The first thing I want you to note is that you were created special. There is no other like you and there will be no other. God created you that uniquely. Secondly, He created you for a purpose. You must live to fulfill that purpose and not live and leave no trace of yourself. ... Thirdly, for you to fulfill that purpose you must

exist. There are people here in life whose existence is quite meaningless. Yes, they are living but there is nothing to show for their living. The only distinction between them and the dead is just that these can breathe. You must not be like these. The fourth point is that for you to exist, you must identify your enemies.  And these enemies as Paul says include sexual immorality, drunkenness, greed, jealousy and several others. Lastly, when you have identified these enemies, you must clothe yourself with Christ,” he said.
