Webale, Webale!!

Many thanks to our faithful prayer and financial supporters!! Your support is helping us purchase ingredients for therapeutic milk (milk, sugar, oil) to strengthen and heal malnourished children like Mukuuni (see picture on the right). Many of you have supported the chicken project ~ the hens have begun laying eggs, given to malnourished inpatients at the local health center (see Basaija with some of the first eggs, picture on the left). We are so grateful for your partnership in spreading God’s love to malnourished and at-risk children in Bundibugyo.

“If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk, and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday. The Lord will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame.” Is 58:9b – 11a

Pray for a Plentiful Harvest!

On July 23 and 24, we distributed 1000 kg of soybean, groundnut, and sesame seed to farmers in Bubandi and Busaru Sub-counties. We are praying for a plentiful harvest, and that God would use this project to glorify Himself as we all rely on Him for rain and sun to grow up healthy plants. We hope to use the resulting harvest for another seed distribution, and we also hope to use the soybeans, groundnuts, and sesame seeds to produce a nutrient-dense paste for malnourished children in Bundibugyo. Pray for the literal and Spiritual harvests both to be rich and plentiful!

"But the one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it. He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty, or thirty times what was sown." Mt 13:23
