Uganda Team Update

Today the team went to worship at Grace Fellowship Church in the Old Kampala Slum. It was daunting to arrive to a place that has such obvious needs, but the service was inspirational. Numerous groups of children made their way to the front where they sang and danced to songs praising God. Many of the children didn’t even have shoes but it was evident how thankful they were to God! They are truly happy children!

We were able to open a clinic in the slum where 200 people came to get medical attention. We also traveled to the boys’ home, which houses 50 boys from the surrounding area, to fit shoes for those there. About 20 girls were also outfitted for shoes. It was a long and tiring day for the team, but one I’m certain no one would trade. God is at work here.

Tomorrow we will travel to Masaka, and will be staying at the Maria Flo Hotel. The phone number to the hotel is (256) (0) 752 800329. Please continue to pray for us and especially for the Ugandans here. We will be out of touch for the next few days while in Masaka. We are staying at the Metropole Hotel in Kampala on Thursday night, and the number there is (256) (4) 1439006. Thanks and may God bless you!
