Reaching those - who would be lost in His Name to be Priest of the Lord...Isaiah 6:16

Our main purpose is to Reconcile all people to knowledge of the gift of grace and power of God in todays world for their individual lives. We will have a discipleship teaching orientation for Pastors, leaders and believers of all ages with a special focus on areas that do not get many well-known speakers including widows and orphan. Today’s calling seems to be Africa, but the Lord recent spoke to our hearts to think bigger…His is a WORLD WIDE OPERATION- and He will not lose what He died for---His people- You

Sheets, Shoes, and School Supplies

It’s amazing how quickly the days are slipping by as we prepare for our time in South Sudan and Uganda. 

We are excited for everything that God will do during this trip; both through us and in us.  Originally the mission was to visit and orphanage in South Sudan, which has since grown to two orphanages in South Sudan as well as one in Uganda.  We will have opportunities to minister to the children at all each of the three orphanages as well as the children at the school. 

Abba House in Entebbe Uganda is not a traditional orphanage but run like a home as much as possible. It consists of two house and four Ugandan women who take care of the children there. There is a missionary from America that is there several months of the year but the “aunties” are there to care for the children and function as close to what a normal Uganda home would function.  We are blessed that God has opened a door for us to spend some time with them, get to know them, and minister to them.

The 40 children at the home range in age from 5-18 and are in need of several supplies.  First we ask for your prayers that God will provide everything on the list and bless these children. Second, if you would like to help by making a donation, I am making a list of everything that they need.   I am putting this list in order of urgency of need

 Paper for school (this has to be purchased in Uganda as they have a specific type there so we will take money for them to purchase what they need)

40 sets of bed sheets – Dark colors or patterns (25 girls & 15 boys)
40 pairs of slip on tennis shoes (not white) – I will post their names, ages and sizes. Please let me know if you are planning to purchase any so that I can keep the list of sizes updated

12” plastic rulers
Plastic pencil sharpeners
40 pair of black dress shoes for school (These can be purchased in Uganda for about $18 a pair)
12 scientific calculators with sine and cosine

4 pair of church shoes for the house aunties
