Gulu THANKS You!

One week ago, God took me to a place and showed me things that I had never experienced before. He then inspired words that told the story of a tiny village that had gone overlooked by all but Him.

Until Now. 

We must never underestimate the power of what good we can do in this world, together. Your response to this story was overwhelming and humbling. Within hours, the need for the requested beds was met. Within days, you had more than three times provided for this tiny village of children, orphaned and left behind by one of the most brutal civil wars our generation has ever seen.

Tomorrow, a mission team from Texas will be hand delivering the beds, bibles, and mosquito nets that you provided, to this tiny village just outside of Gulu. We could not have done this without you. Thank you for your generosity, compassion, and faithfulness to serve these children. They are the least, the last, but they are not forgotten.

To God be the glory!

    It’s 4:16 am and the team will be gathering for breakfast in a few hours to head out to distribute these beds. We will be participating in a daily chapel service with the partners personnel before we make our way to Unyama to be blessed by these children. Once again seeing and hearing stories of devastation and stories of survival have been very moving. And while the civil war is no longer an active threat, the malaria, AIDS, and even the slave trade is. We we told yesterday that the remote area we distributed beds to was the most active area for slave trade abductions. Thanks to your great articles, Madelene, we have spent a full week preparing our hearts and souls to be able to love on these children today. Thanks.
