Heartbreaking events continue to happen again and again throughout our world and we wonder why bad things happen to so many good people. Where we live in Mpumudde, an area north of Jinja city, life is currently very difficult because of the rains. Yes, those rains are still falling. Many of our neighbours have lost their homes, children have lost their families and death is widespread. Because burials are a challenge for many; diseases are on the uprise with epidemics of mumps, measles, cholera and of course malaria. Malaria has affected all our kids but they are blessed to have treatment immediately.
For fifteen years we've faced the good and the bad and as rough as it currently is, we want to focus now only on the good. God promises to be with us always, protecting us from the storms of life and we know, as our foundation, we can stand firm trusting that our destiny is safe in His hands. So...instead of bad news, we want to share some rewards that have recently happened at Home of Angels among our own children.
These are her beautiful grandchildren ages 5, 6 and 7 years old. Full of jiggers, ringworm which is very visible and other things unidentifiable. We would like to take them into our Home of Angels and raise them in a home where they will be loved. Edwin will start the process soon but first there must be an internal medical check done.
I wanted to let you know that I had to cancel my trip again in July. Many of you have sent letters and small gifts to the children you sponsor and they will receive them, but not until I'm able to leave. I will keep you all updated and I also want to thank the many of you who have stood strong with us for so long. You've made such a huge difference changing so many lives these past years and I'm so happy to be their voice to tell you on this side of the world how grateful they are.
