ANTIGO - Father Bob Obol made his way from a war torn country in Africa to Antigo.
Obol grew up during a war and a dictatorship in Uganda, Africa in the '70s and '80s.
"There is a day that I've never forgotten," said Obol.
Obol remembers army trucks coming into his town and kidnapping children.
"The focus was just on surviving day-to-day," said Obol.
His key for survival during those times were the people around him.
"During the war, what kept us going was the sense of community," said Obol.
The church is where Obol said he found peace.
"In the community I grew up in the priests was the star of the town and the village," said Obol.
Obol got a chance to shine in the church as an ordained minister in Uganda in 2001.
Then he got a surprising opportunity to come to America in 2003.
