Mr Kyle McConnel hailing from Ballyclare Town, Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland is 29 years old.
Kyle grew up without proper understanding of God. Fortunately, through the many struggles of life and modern day battles like addictions, mental health and trauma, he began his unshakable relationship with the Almighty God. His Faith in God grew and continues to grow steadily. We praise God for this spiritual achievement!
Jesus Christ is His perfect role model because He encourages Him to embrace the downtrodden:
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty you gave me a drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me ...Truly I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me'' Matt 25; 35-40.
Jesus is calling Kyle to be light to the world as he reaches out to the poor and vulnerable people of Uganda.
''You are the light of the World''.
The reason Kyle decided to offer his services to the people of God in Uganda through Second Chance Charitable Trust is because through services to others he finds fulfilment. Nothing, be it money or worldly things that can give him salvation of his soul or contentment. Service to other people brings him closer to Christ. St Paul put it right ''All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I had been eager to do all along''. Gal 2:10. It was at Our Lady Queen of Peace Shrine, Medjugorje that Kyle learnt of this Charity he offered his services as a volunteer. He will be arriving in Uganda on the 26th February 2023, the very month that the First Catholic Missionaries Fr Lourdel Mapeera and Brother Amans arrived in Uganda in 1879..
All in all, Kyle is looking forward to working with the Second Chance Charitable Trust Team on the ground and to working with partners, philanthropic people from around the World in his portfolio as the Charity Volunteers Coordinator!
As he leaves his motherland (Ireland) to Uganda he finds it in order to leave you with An Irish blessing: " May there always be work for your hands to do. May your purse always hold a coin or two. May the Sun always shine on your windowpane. May the hand of a friend always be near you. May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you''. Uganda, here I come.
