In a country ravaged by HIV/Aids, poverty, corruption, and the lingering effects of Islamic persecution, an individual is being used by God to make an eternal difference – one life at a time. Pastor Hillary Wafula Wangira, a native of Uganda is helping to bring healing and hope to this stricken country. Through the ministry of Bright Hope Orphanage and Lumino Town Church, Pastor Hillary is helping care for over 300 children, orphaned through the plague of HIV and other diseases.

Pastor Hillary is a key leader in eastern Uganda and a trainer with International Training and Equipping Ministries (ITEM), as he helps trains hundreds of pastors and spiritual leaders in Uganda.
