Forum on Asylum January 13, 2019

The January 13, 2019 Sunday Forum (after the 11am service) will focus on asylum when will hear from Roman Wevugira who came to our Christmas service this year. A citizen of Uganda, he holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce, has worked in IT and as a manager for FedEx. He fled his country after he and his family were subjected to violence and threats over several years, following his political activity and exposure of police corruption. Sent by his university to a conference in Florida early in 2018, he took the opportunity to seek asylum in the United States. After months in asylum detention, he has now won his asylum case, and is looking to rebuild a life in this new country. Come and hear him speak, and consider how we at Ascension can help to welcome him as part of our community, as he seeks to make his way in a new land.
