Jan. ’14 Trip to SOH, Uganda – Update #2

Pastor Moses described the group of 7 that traveled to visit as “a strong team” and he was amazed at what they have accomplished in a short time.

Greg, Ed, Pastor Moses, and Dr. Ben visited the SOH Home and returned to the LSH Home safely last night.   The rest of the team stayed at the LSH Home.  Here are a few highlights of the 3 days at the Stream of Hope Home in Uganda.

Greg reported that the kids were in great shape, happy and healthy. The best that he has seen them.

Dr. Ben from Kitale (center back row, next to Ed) evaluated all the children, left recommendations as needed, and left medicine and instructions with the caretaker. Several have conditions that require care and one little girl is seriously ill.

Greg, Ed, Pastor Moses, and Pastor Paul are discussing the purchase of a tract of land with the owner and a lawyer. We hope to complete the purchase and begin building a permanent compound for the children like we have at LSH in Kenya.

Yesterday Greg and Ed with Pastor Moses and Dr. Ben from Kitale, traveled to the SOH Home in Uganda.  They are working on immediate needs at the home, assessing the children’s health, and planning for future improvements.  One primary goal is to review several possible sites to purchase for a permanent home site.  Greg reports that they are negotiating with an owner about a piece of property.

We will report more soon.  Please pray for their safety and for God to work mightily through them.
