It's 32 degrees outside the little dusty brick church in Arua, northern Uganda. Twenty delegates, their faces scrunched up in concentration, practise telling Bible stories from God’s point of view. Through the window, curious children stare at the adults sitting in small groups on bright blue plastic chairs, and no doubt at the strange mzungu (Caucasian) lady at the front smiling and encouraging her pupils. Outside, hump-backed cows amble across the grass, their welcome gifts of manure quickly scooped up by canny women, to be deposited on the maize beds bordering the tukuls (traditional mud huts) 100 yards away.
