The Goat Project

Early on Raelee and I wanted to get a baby goat. They are “so cute and funny” when they are little. We got a male and female. Over the last two and a half years we have had babies and either the mother or baby or both died. We have had nine die over the

Solar For Widows

One widow's family were so thankful for the solar lights because she is bedridden and they had to get up in the night in the dark to clean her soiled bedclothes. Now they have light to see (especially since we have big snakes including cobras around!) This small gesture has changed lives in a big

A New Chapter

Happy Mama! Haria is one of our girls we have helped support through school to be a Mid Wife. Her training was a little over a year and a half and very extensive. I believe she could almost be licensed as an RN in the States. She scored in the top five in the nation

Salima

Salima is such a go-getter. There is never a time when she is not doing something. She says she does not like to be idle. On her breaks from school she either helps me out with whatever I need or she is working on the farm. She never asks or accepts pay when she has

Rain or Shine

Let me ask you, how many people do you know would walk through pouring rain, through mud in the chill of morning to hear the Word of God? I know of Churches in America that cancelled services because of hard rains. It doesn’t matter how much it is raining here, many will walk barefoot through

Takia

“Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established” Proverbs 16:3 Takia is one of our girls that we have helped in school.

Ms Joyce

Isaiah 1:17 says “Learn to do good; seek justice; correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause” We try to meet the needs of widows and widowers in our community. Ms. Joyce is one of our more colorful ones! She tell us (through an interpreter) some pretty funny stories! And she is

Loving The Motherless

Three and a half years ago a twelve year old girl came to a church we were visiting. She stood and asked if anyone could help her and her brothers and sisters. It was known in the village that their mother had died and their father abandoned them to go live with one of his

This Is Us

This has been one of the hardest posts for me to make. Because the focus is on us personally and we do not like to be the center of attention! But I thought it important for you to see that The Mandate in Uganda is real people being used by a real God to affect

Loving God’s Children

Every Sunday we have anywhere from 110-160 children attend Sunday School. On holidays and kids days where we have games and activities we have had as many as five hundred attend. “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6” On Sunday
