NTUNGAMO- President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has asked Christians to develop themselves a spirit of individual engagement and mobilization to foster their economic growth through dynamic evangelism, true revival, conversations, fellowships and devotions.

President Museveni who was represented by the Minister of state for Industry and the Ndorwa west Member of Parliament David Bahati made the call on Saturday while officiating at the launch of Life ministry Uganda in South Western Uganda and premiering the walking with Jesus film at Ankole resort and spa in Ntungamo Municipality.

President Museveni said that Christians should embrace the spirit of self mobilization and initiation of their own projects in the country without necessarily waiting for foreign aid from missionaries. He said that using their pulpits, Christians can be mobilized for spiritual and economical development in order to have stable and well converted citizens of Uganda.

Museveni also noted that the existence of the Church in Uganda was at its inception faced with several resistances by the then governments due to ideological disorientation hence applauding the Church for good partnership with the government which he said has helped in the economic transformation and stability of the country.
