Kanalaki house of prayer church was begun in April 2004 in a predominantly pastoral (livestock-rearing)
community.  The church is located about 2 kilometers off the main road accessible by foot, motorcycle or 4 wheel drive vehicle.  In April of 2007 the church members were able to purchase land with a gift from Heritage
Baptist of Annapolis MD.   A grass roofed church was built on this land.  The original church grass roofed church structure was replaced in 2008 with a larger metal roof building.
Kanalaki is in the Rakai district of Uganda which is considered the epicenter for the HIV epidemic in East Africa.
