Bishop Akanjuna Urges Youth to Avoid Harmful Family Planning Methods

KABALE –The Bishop of the Diocese of Kigezi, Rt Rev Gaddie Akanjuna, has warned young adults, mostly girls, to desist from the habit of using family planning methods that could ruin their lives.

Bishop Akanjuna made the call today during the confirmation service held at Bukora COU Parish under Kikungiri Archdeaconry in Kitumba Sub-County of Kabale district, where 71 individuals were confirmed into the Anglican faith.

Bishop Akanjuna stressed the need for the youth to abstain from sex, rather than using emergency pills, noting that the contraception has promoted infertility among the teenagers. He implored the youth to have hope in Christ despite the challenges and frustrations they encounter in life, stating that faith and hope in Him keeps our focus on the future.

Bishop Akanjuna also appealed to Christians to embrace obedience to the voice of God in a bid to grow and be nurtured in the faith received from Christ.
