On Hoima road, before you reach Wakiso town, is Mount Sion Prayer Centre, Bukalango.
A place synonymous with miracles and Fr Expedito Magembe. It sits on a 'mountain' with a stadium-size church that houses the community that seeks God, every day, every month, every second.
On New Year's eve, the atmosphere was calm at Bukalango. A few murmurs here and there--some deep in prayer--as others ambled up towards the church in hundreds. ?So many cars were parked and the crowd was massive. It was a mixture of the affluent, the poverty-stricken, and the middle-class.
So, as 2013 drew closer, Bukalango exploded with noise leaking from all corners, to welcome the New Year with a godly touch.
"I have come here to thank God for giving me what I asked of Him last year," said Richard Kasirye, who came with his wife and four children to this amalamaga (pilgrimage).
Like Kasirye, there were many people seeking, among others, the blessings, healing and mega breakthroughs in 2013. Among these was the "Stuck on You - Jesus", a group of Catholics who pledge to spend one hour with Jesus on any day of the week throughout the year.
Fr Magembe prayed for peace to prevail in the country and also blessed those who chose to welcome 2013 in prayer.
