Rev. Kefa Sempangi to speak in chapel.Rev. Kefa Sempangi, founder of the Africa Foundation, will address “Jesus and Suffering” in the chapel service at Geneva College on Wednesday, September 23 at 10:10 a.m. in Metheny Fieldhouse. Sempangi’s visit is part of Geneva College’s International Justice Week September 23-25.

Sempangi is the founder and pioneer of the Presbyterian church in Uganda. During the 1970s, he and his congregation of nearly 14,000 members became targets of the brutal Ugandan dictator Idi Amin.

His books, A Distant Grief and From the Dust, tell the story of his work and experiences. Sempangi is a former minister and parliamentarian in the Ugandan government and former chairman of the National Council for Children in Uganda.
