Rev. Canon Christine Shimanya, the Anglican chaplain for Uganda’s parliament has advised Christians who give their regular offering in shillings (the local currency) to use dollars and pounds as well.
Daily Monitor reports that the cleric said this during a sermon at Namugongo Martyrs Church, just outside the capital, Kampala, on Sunday:
“Some Christians have dollars and pounds earned from international conferences; instead they change the money to shillings before bringing it to church as offertory. Bring those dollars and pounds, God needs them.”
