Iganga, (UG):- The Bishop of Central Busoga Diocese Rt. Rev. Patrick Wakula has rallied believers to embrace the ongoing National Population and Housing Census regardless of their religious affiliations.

The Man of God says the exercise is aimed at supporting the government in planning for the population by offering equitable services.

Rt. Rev. Wakula was on Sunday leading prayers at St. Andrew’s Igamba Church of Uganda in Iganga Northern Division where he commissioned a well-furnished house which was built for the Curate of Igamba Parish by one of the church members, Mr. Mukacha Andrew, currently living in the USA with support from Christians.

“I want to call upon all the people of God to embrace the census exercise by accepting to be counted. Don’t say that you were already counted by God in heaven yet you are still on this earth because this is intended for good planning by the government, regardless of the religion you subscribe to,” Bishop Wakula said and as well urged parents to spiritually guide their children.

He commended the family of Mukacha which was represented by relatives at the commissioning, for the great achievement in supporting the gospel of God and also commended the engineering department led by Eng. Mucurezi Richard for the trustworthiness in construction, before urging all believers to emulate the example of Mr. Mukacha Andrew.

“We want to thank all Christians who have contributed, especially the family of Mr. Andrew Mukacha for the tremendous work and this is the kind of development we desire in the diocese. God’s servants need to put up well and the gospel which comes from them will automatically impact on the communities,” Bp. Wakula said before appreciating the archdeacon of Iganga archdeaconry the Ven. Rev. Can. Robert Enoch Mubibi for his leadership.

During Sunday prayers, at least 32 converts who included children and adults were confirmed by the Bishop and he urged them to move by God’s teaching in all their Christian lives.

As it is one of his campaigns to preserve the environment, Rt. Rev. Wakula first monitored the trees which were planted by the converts before proceeding with the confirmation.

The Curate of Igamba Parish Rev. Martin Muyambi appreciated the grace granted to a family and some church members to set up a house for ministers. He said that Ms. Getrude Mukacha was supportive to her husband in executing the construction works.
