Randy and Dale sit down with Dr. Tim and Janice McCall of Restoration Gateway. Their mission is 700 acres of land in Northern Uganda. They work to restore peace and heal wounds among the vulnerable children and war-torn people in the area.
About Restoration Gateway
The ministry of Restoration Gateway started in 2004 when seven Ugandan men began meeting to pray under a tree on the land presently held by the project. Their prayer was that God would send someone to help restore all that the enemy had stolen in their land. God answered those prayers and issued a call to Dr. Tim and Janice McCall in early 2005 to move to Uganda. The first trip by the McCalls took place in May of 2005, and the land for the project was selected.
