MUNCIE, IN—On Friday, June 14th, I sat down with Steve Lindell and interviewed him about his experiences in Arua, Uganda.

In the audio interview below, Steve talks about why he went, and the logistics of traveling over 7,000 miles to Radio Pacis in Arua, Uganda— his final destination. In my 25 minute interview Steve talks about the challenges the people of Arua face every day:

Like poverty and government corruption.
Working in a multi-lingual environment, to create impactful radio programs for the public.
Traveling on rudimentary paths for hours that masquerade as roads.
Ethnic cleansing.

All while standing out as the first white man many Aruan’s had ever seen.

It’s an interesting interview I hope you will listen to. Even though the lifestyle in Uganda is difficult, you’ll hear Steve discuss why there is still JOY among the people there.

Steve is open to speaking to civic groups around the Delaware County area, and has already given a few presentations. If your group is interesting in hearing him speak about the trip, email him at steve.lindell@woofboom.com

A few photos of his trip are below, too.

In the audio interview above, Steve talks about this photo. Called a “listening session,” the photo shows a number of refugee groups who came together to voice their concerns on a variety of subjects and topics. These sessions were recorded by Radio Pacis, and then broadcast over their radio stations.
