Since 2001, George and Geraldine Smith have been serving through the International Mission Board (SBC) in Uganda. Primarily, they have been working in establishing churches on the Buvuma Islands in Lake Victoria. They have seen many from various tribes accept Christ and many new churches planted. A Bible Institute has been established, many schools started, and water wells drilled. Currently, they are involved in teaching pastors how to “farm raise” tilapia in Lake Victoria. Since fish farming is not common, this will be a blessing to the pastors economically and nutritionally. Recently, George has expanded his ministry to help refugees on the borders of Tanzania and Somalia.

JCBA churches have participated in over 9 trips to Uganda in the last seven years.

April 28, 2017 to May 12, 2017, a team traveled to Uganda to assist IMB Missionary, George and Geraldine Smith. The team ministered on the Sudan border. They trained pastors and ministered to very remote villages.
