Trip 28 to Uganda and Kenya Update 3 …Medical Outreach

A full joint effort among the Child Redeemed Mission Home, Bwase Redeemed Church, and Mission Servants Ministry produced a Medical Outreach project on the CRM grounds for the local community.  Services were provided without charge as a practical expression of love, that are not readily accessible or affordable.  Eyes/vision, dental, and general medical services were professionally available as well as the needed drugs.  A local Doctor, Nurse, Phlebotomists, Dentist were brought in and well as Dr. Randall helping people with eye and vision issues.  Even two young men from the Kenyan Lord’s Servants Home visited to serve.  The CRM facility was perfect for hosting this event.  The local police and community leadership also showed their support.

The numbers are amazing….. over 800 adults and children served.  The goal was for each of them to be personally prayed for by one of the BRC church members, children to be played with by the CRM kids, and all treated with hospitality as they waited.  We had to shut the gates by 12:30pm the second day but treated every person that arrived before that happened, by 5:00pm.

 

 

Over 100 people were seen by Dr. Randall Thomas OD and treated for irritated eyes and infections or given prescription or reading glasses and needed drugs and medicine.  Dr. Randall brought an Autorefractor device loaned to us from PlenOptika, which automatically assesses vision and provides a corrective prescription if needed.  Eye glasses were donated by Restoring Vision and others.  I caught a photo of a man breaking out in a big smile when he first looked clearly through some glasses given to him.  A girl with an eye threatening infection was diagnosed and treated.  Another young girl that already lost an eye was evaluated for future assistance.

Dental services such as teeth pulling and infection treatment were given to over 100 people by a hard working local dentist and a team of volunteers that tirelessly sterilized instruments and served the people before and after.  Case after case of pain relief.

A team from Kamuli Mission Hospital of Dr., Nurse, Phlebotomist, medical student (our own Kenny from Lords’s Servants Home in Kenya) and many volunteers served nearly 600 people with Malaria Testing, Blood Pressure screening, treatment for a number of common illnesses and conditions, needed drugs, and promise of follow up services.  Several severe cases were referred and these people will continue to be assisted.  This team worked extremely hard.

 

Most importantly people were met on a personal level and prayed for.  This was a powerful opportunity that the members of the BRC Church took advantage of to share the love of Christ in a practical way to their community.  Over 60 people prayed to receive Jesus as their savior during the outreach alone.  We praise God for such an awesome blessing!  Thank you to all who donated to this project to allow the hiring of professionals and purchase of supplies and drugs.  An impact of love was made to a needy group of people and children and many kids and volunteers experienced a servant Ministry.

 

 

Trip 28 to Uganda and Kenya, Update 2 …VBS Fun

The Child Redeemed Mission Home and the Bwase Redeemed Church hosted a Vacation Bible School for the Community kids under 11 years old.  We had roughly 300 kids and 30 volunteers and great weather.  The kids got a full day of Bible stories, crafts, running around games, a hot meal, and a message to bring home.  The day was full of sweet moments and was a lot of fun for us and a great time for them.

Trip 26 – Uganda, Update 3

I love this Place!  Less than a week before returning home.  All of our planned projects at Child Redeemed Mission Home will be completed in a few days.  The grade school and upper class High School kids start school Monday and everyone is prepared.  7 new High Schoolers are being prepared to start in a week.  The playground, student and teacher desks, and building projects for Promise Primary are finished and they are ready to start school Monday.  The church is really alive and service is tomorrow.  Please pray for all that to go well in the next few days.   I’m enjoying everyone.  I love this place….. It was built on prayer over the last 5 years.  Thank you for being part of it.

Thank you! Happy New Year!

This is just a short Thank You for your prayers, encouragement, and support for the blessings that MSM was able to be part of in 2018 to the children and communities in Uganda and Kenya at the Child Redeemed Mission Home, Promise Primary, and Lord’s Servants Home.  It was a full and successful year moving over 300 kids toward a positive future while giving Jesus Christ the glory in the communities.  MSM simply passes on the blessings it is brought by you all.  We are not sponsored or supported by any other organization, just a lot of loving individuals.

Please pray for the two MSM teams that are going to serve at the sites in January.  God’s provisions, plans, and protection are needed.  If you feel led to be involved and can help with a year end donation, it will be greatly appreciated and used well.  Either check or PayPal works.  Thank you!

Here are some of the kids wearing their Christmas blessings this year…..

Exciting …. New Kids Joining CRM

It is an incredible and humbling feeling knowing that a human’s future is going to brighten and change by walking in the front gate!  Twenty children have been forwarded to the Child Redeemed Home in Uganda for admittance because their situation is extremely vulnerable.  Risks posed by abuse, malnutrition, disease, and poor care are typical.  Most of them need medical care and to be registered in school.  They all need security, healthy lifestyle, to be loved and given a sense of worth, and hope for a life fulfilling God’s purpose for them.  They are innocent and had nothing to do with creating their tenuous situation.

17 of the 40 children being cared for at CRM are now boarded in High School or Trade School and spend much of their school break time with their extended families.  CRM is ready to receive new children.  Children that need to join CRM in order to thrive.  Mission Servants Ministry fully funds CRM and provides this opportunity completely through donations, sponsors, and God’s providence.

Please Prayerfully Consider Joining in a Hands-On effort…. “it’s God’s Grace to see instant security, love, and hope for a real future in a Child’s Life”…..and Sponsor one!

$50.00 per month supports a child completely…food, clothing, school.  Unlike the large Child Funds, we have only one sponsor per child and encourage a relationship.  100% of sponsorship funds go to direct child support at the home.
