After prayerful consideration and seeing first hand the need and heart at the Stream of Hope for the African Child (SOHAC) Home in Nawantale, Uganda, we decided to add them as a supported ministry. See previous blog. I am excited that we will be working in partnership with Rev. Kathy Bailey and Friends at Serving the Lord Ministries in Quinebaug, CT to serve SOHAC in Jesus’ name.
We have provided some funding already for weekly food for the 46 children currently at the home, medical assistance, and given direction on a few projects to improve the health conditions at the home. Improvements are being made to the kitchen shelter and an agreement made with the landlord to allow him to improve the latrine and finish the floors in the house. Pastor Isabirye Paulous is a loving and committed man to these children and he has a great team of people focused on them. Some of them are in this photo below…Pastor Isabirye is 2nd from the right in the back row.
Needs exist, beyond regular food and supplies, to help the kids with school uniforms and school fees. They also need better cooking equipment, food storage, water storage, beds, bedding, mosquito nets, pest control, clothes washing supplies, and clothing. They do have faith that God provides.
Being a supported ministry of Mission Servants means that we have the ability to funnel funds and support to them and will be providing direction on improving the safety, health, and quality of the home with a long-term vision for the children to fullfill God’s purpose in their lives. You will see that some web pages and information has been added to the website here. Much more information will be added soon on the website and in blogs.
Thank you for your prayers for God’s direction, guidance, protection, and provisions.
