I made my first trip to Uganda in September 2009, when I took a small team and hosted a women's conference in the city of Kampala. The oppression of women in this country has been strong because of polygamy. In the conference I organized, a majority of the women said they came from polygamous families. In fact, a few of the women had as many as eight mothers living in the same house! For that reason, the women were overjoyed to hear the message of liberation I shared with them from the life of Hannah in the Bible--a woman who lived in a polygamous home and yet she was greatly used by God!
