The greatest disease and the greatest suffering is to be unwanted. Without a doubt, we are currently living in a community of poverty and brokenness. It's been a difficult year for everyone through many days of rain, homes washed away, few crops planted and now the people feeling as though they're travelling through uncharted territory. There is no more wood or charcoal for cooking, food and fuel is terribly expensive and there's very little work. Officials are also receiving intelligence that terrorists are interested in planting bombs in churches.
With all that's changing in Uganda, we still continue to have some really good stories. Two of our girls passed YWAM. Hope excelled in her grades and will be coming to Canada with her team soon. We have three more girls phasing out of HOA at the end of 2023 that will also attend YWAM and hopefully in 2024, two more girls will have the same chance. We have three more new orphans coming in as soon as they pass their medical and have their jiggers removed from their feet. Each blood-sucking parasite I've been told carries 1000's more if not removed and burned.
Our LOVE project is amazing. These children are physically and mentally handicapped. Precious and Edwin went for a visit taking clothes for the children. This little one and many others there can only crawl on the ground. Their Mamas are providing everything they need by working hard to make soap, bricks, chalk for schools and anything new they can learn. They have a community bank account and each family is putting in money monthly. Precious is the Treasurer.
