I want to give you an update on what Mission Uganda is doing. We had to cancel our plans to go back to Uganda this August due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In Uganda, the President has the country in a lock down. This has caused horrible starvation. The Ugandans live day-to-day and without work, they have no means to buy food. What Mission Uganda has done is raise money to buy maize corn, and the mill we built has been running 24/7 grinding maize flour for porridge. Maggi estimates to date, we have feed 5,000 people who will have two meals a day for two months. By this act of feeding the hungry, we feel there is not better way to obey Christ’s command to feed his sheep.
When Maggi was out delivering porridge the other day, someone brought her to this desperate situation. Six children were abandoned by their parents. The oldest is 8 years old. He is taking care of his brothers and sisters. He is the one responsible for going out and finding food and water for the family. Can you imagine being a third grader with that kind of responsibility?
Maggi talked to the local officials and has gotten the okay to sponsor them and take them to the orphanage. Joel and Deann Jansen have given us the money for their sponsorship for the first year.
Next week, Maggi is going to pick these kids up and take them to our orphanage. I am trying to think of what will go through these kids minds when they see their new home, their little bunk beds with blankets and pillows, three meals a day, other kids to play with, the opportunity to go to school, and to be loved by Jesus filled people. Amazing!
I am looking for people who would be willing to sponsor one or more of these kids. The cost is $1,600/year, and we ask that you commit to supporting them until they are 18 years old.
My friends, this is a game changer of kids lives.
I would greatly appreciate your help.
Presently there are 20 kids in the Engber’s House and 13 kids in the Smith-Korte House.
Also, another person has committed to donating the money to build the 3rd house and has named it the Hope House.
