“I will not leave you as orphans. I will come to you.” —John 14:18
It’s hard to look into the eyes of a child, who has no shoes, torn clothes and a bloated belly, without it grabbing your heart. In 2006, during a brief time spent in Northern Uganda, that grab turned into action.
We took action when we built our first village and moved 200 orphan children living in horrific conditions to a brand new home. Philippians 4:19 says, “And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” The Village of Hope Uganda is a living testimony to the richness of Paul’s words in Philippians 4:19 which says, “And my God will supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” because the Lord has abundantly provided. Now we are taking action again by opening Bobi Village, our second community of homes for orphan children. On February 2, 2014, 96 more children will be taken to a community where they will be loved on by the village moms, given medical care, educated at the village school, and fed nourishment to both the body and soul.
I cannot say thank you enough for the many people who have supported Bobi Village. Because of your efforts, Bobi has received the funds needed for full sustainability. One person didn’t make this happen. Sure, God spoke to my heart back in 2006 to “do something” but without the support, help, prayers, donations from people all across this country, that child would still be living with no shoes, torn clothes, a bloated belly, and NO HOPE for his future.
Thank YOU for moving from compassion to ACTION!
Join us in celebrating the Grand Opening of the Bobi Village on February 2, 2014! You may not be able to fly all the way to Uganda, but you can celebrate right where you are!
Love and Blessings,
