Missionaries Todd and Wendy Gilliland of Kampala, Uganda will be speaking at the First Baptist Church on November 27 at 7 p.m. The couple are longtime friends of Pat and Connie Benson of Monroe City. The public is invited to attend the event on the mission and testimony of the Gilliland family.
The Gilliland’s do missionary work for Faithfully Nurturing Children (FNC), where the Bensons serve on the Board of Directors for the outreach program. Originally FNC was known as Friday Night Church. The FNC is located in one of Kampala’s largest slums called Kamwokya. The Gilliland’s felt God pulling their family to minister in Uganda. In 2012, the family sold their home, cars, resigned from their jobs and moved to Kampala to answer the call.
