Gungu girlChores are not foreign
to Gungu children. (Uganda
Traditionally fishermen and pastoralists, most Bagungu live in mud houses with a grass roof. Language work began among the Bagungu in 1996. The Bible is available in Runyoro, the neighboring language of wider communication but only the educated can read it. Many years ago missionaries brought the gospel and about five denominations have churches in the area. Unfortunately very few attend church, and even though the people call themselves “Christians” only a few are believers, and traditional religion which binds the people in fear is still very real.
