. Today at 8:01amWith November 17th being the Uganda World Day of Prayer, our group has 800 participants from many different faith traditions who will be participating throughout the day.

If you do not have a faith tradition but would still like to tangibly do something on November 17th, please email or call the Ugandan Government and the Ugandan Embassy officials. I have compiled a list of all of the important government officials in Uganda, as well as the Ugandan Embassy officials in America. Please visit

for that complete list. (See below)

Also, I know many of you are located in various countries from around the world, and if you have any direct information regarding your country's Ugandan Embassy, please reply to this email with the contact info and I will be sure to pass it along to the group.

There are currently over 4,000 people from all over the world on the Facebook group to bring awareness to the Ugandan legislation through all of the breaking news, interviews and published articles written to stop this bill from passing. With such a wide array of people, Dr. Warren Throckmorton and I have created the World Day of Prayer for Uganda on November 17th. Please feel free to join us on that day and continue to spread the word. Here is the email I recently sent out to my network from around the world:

Hello Everyone,

Thank you all for continuing to spread the message that regardless of one’s theological belief system, this legislation is wrong. 

Dr. Warren Throckmorton and I are assembling a day of prayer. We know that there are many of you in this group who are not religious, and we are not asking you to do something you are not comfortable with. But for those who do have a faith tradition we ask that on Tuesday November 17th, you take at least 30 minutes to pray for the following:

1. That this legislation be thrown out

2. For protection and peace for our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters living in this oppression in Uganda and around the world

3. That the Ugandan Church realize this legislation is not morally or Scripturally correct – as there has been disturbing news recently coming from some of my contacts in Uganda and Parliament that the Ugandan Church is starting to make official statements in favor of this bill. I will be posting those as soon as they are official.

The world will feel this impact! I know that on the evening of November 17th I have a large group gathering in Chicago that will be focusing our time in prayer for the aforementioned three requests. This Facebook group has members located all over the world, and we have a unique opportunity to gather throughout the globe to lift these injustices to our Creator to make a divine impact. If your belief urges you to do so, please join us in this day of prayer. Thank you.

In the meantime, please also contact the following influencers to voice your opposition to this legislation:
