Dear Sponsor, I am Lenny Mugisha; I have been the Country Director of Compassion Uganda for three years now, but I have worked with Compassion International for seven years. The three years to me have been years of fervent ministry to children both directly and indirectly. I like to swim in the evenings after work whenever it is possible. Swimming refreshes me and keeps me in shape for more assignments and duties that await me.open_in_new Read full letter
