The presence of Andrew and Wendell Parr was deeply appreciated. The students are depending on Andrew Wommack Ministries to continue its presence in Uganda. In that regard, Andrew announced that he is grooming third-year students to restart the full Charis Bible College program.

Gary Everett, longtime director of Lighthouse Television has accepted the additional role of ministry director for Andrew Wommack in Uganda. His years of experience in the local culture and his connections to government and business, have helped stabilize Andrew’s position after the loss of Leland.

And Parliament member, Honorable Mariam Matembe, nearly stole the show. As former head of the Office of Integrity and Ethics, she challenged the graduates to boldly enter all levels of Ugandan society and make it a better place.

A touching moment in the proceedings occurred when Leland’s widow, Andrew enjoys a moment with firey Miriam Matembe. (Click to enlarge)Carole Shores received her first year certificate of completion. On this first CBC graduation day in Uganda, the memory of Leland Shores and his unique leadership was never far from anyone’s thoughts. Yet the legacy of his service seen in the lives of these students seems alive and well, and ready for a bright future.
