All of us at Home of Angels really believe that He is with us. As you read and see the pictures below, you'll understand that this could not have been done by Edwin, Precious and I alone. This project that started out to be one small house for a few kids out of a garbage dump who didn't want to be called orphans. Back in the day, Edwin felt he wanted to provide a Christmas party on the street for them; hire some aunties to cook and create a little happiness. He even went to the extent to buy star stickers for their foreheads.
Women even came from our community to prepare their food so they could celebrate the birth of Jesus. Everyone helping and everyone happy. Wow, that did it for me.....I was in 100%.
Almost thirteen years later throughout the rainy seasons, pandemics, famine and death, here we are by the grace of God still able to carry on helping the poor and the sick. It's unbelievable! And don't forget about YOU ALL. Whether you collected cans, and yes, almost $20,000 worth of cans from one dear lady; baked 100's of loaves of banana bread for some amazing fundraisers; donated for the construction of both schools, homes, church or sponsored a child. We're all so grateful.
It sounds like I'm saying goodbye....I'm not! We all just wanted you to know that by helping us, you've made a huge difference in the lives of so many people and I promised everyone in Uganda, I would be sure to let you know how grateful they are. Thanks for trusting them.
For the sponsors, I'm really sorry that the older kids aren't in any pictures. They are all attending school off the property, 5 days a week and it's difficult. But, the end of term is soon and they promised those pictures on their holidays. Get ready, you might not recognize them.
A Christmas party on the streets of Jinja for children in the garbage dumps. Aunties that gave up their time to make a difference for these children, cooking and serving many hungry young ones.
The church is looking beautiful. The Minister of Health and Engineering in Jinja had their inspection and told us the windows had to be removed to be made larger for proper ventilation and for better lighting as we have many power outages in our area. Actually, a very good idea as it won't get so hot inside with as many as they're predicting to attend.
This is Mariam and Yasin's grandfather and with our kids in the background I can see that "God's Little Angel's Ministry" is out on a Sunday making a difference to the elderly and sick. These are bars of soap and food. Jaaja is almost 100-years old and can't move around at all now.
Thank you for helping us make a difference in the lives of these children and in their communities.
