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.

Trip 21 to Uganda, Post 1 – Preview

In January, a team of 4 to 8 will meet at Child Redeemed Mission for mission trip #21 for Mission Servants to Africa.  This is actually an invitation to join us physically, prayerfully, or financially.  We will leave mid January and a part of the group will stay a week and others longer.  We may visit the Teso ministry and the LSH Kenya Orphanage.  A lot of the plan depends on the team that is called to go.  If you think you may be led to go, please contact me.  We will solidify plans in the next few weeks
