Uganda – Street Kids

July 16, 2009

We went to a street kids home called Save Street today. Moving. Conditions are poor; spirits are rich. Blessed are the poor in Spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of God. Some days they don’t get a meal, but they are happy, learning the gospel, and in school. They did traditional dances for us, we took pictures, played games, I gave a short message. We sang with them and prayed over them. Sweet children without parents. The pioneer of Save Street, Innocent, was a street kid years ago and chooses to still live with them. Such love and commitment to the gospel. Amazing.

On top of all that, they are starting a church on the premises that reaches out to the surrounding community. Remarkable. They need prayer, financial support, and encouragment. Thank God ACL sent us here. THe team is loving Uganda well, and being changed by all of this. Thank you all.

Pray for our pastoral training and evangelistic visits over the next four days in remote villages.

WIth you in the Gospel,

Jonathan

      I can tell you about Uganda adoption, since I believe you are serious. Email me Ginger! It’s not expensive and not hard. My three kids are coming home in September!
