Mama Catherine is a legend in our circle and to those who have met her. She, along with her husband, Pastor Ernest as well as Boaz and Faith have been serving with Sixty Feet for over a year now, but have been serving God faithfully for decades. We are honored to count them as our family.
While putting this together, I was privileged to be able to watch the following clip several times. Every time I watch it, it gives me chills and I have been eager to share it with you. I hope that it blesses you as much as it has us.
This Amazing Grace that Catherine reminds us of is what the Promise of Hope is ultimately all about. Were it not for the Grace of God, we would be hopeless.
Ever since we met Ernest in 2010, we have hoped for as many people as possible to meet both him and his wife, Mama Catherine. Two more godly and faithful people you will likely not meet this side of heaven. They have tirelessly served God over the decades – planting churches, caring for unwanted children, and serving their community.
In this brief clip with Ernest, he lays out some very weighty topics – baptism of former witch doctors, continuing in God’s work despite difficult circumstances, and our meeting, one day, with individuals in heaven whom we have impacted for God without knowing it.. Enjoy this clip and look forward to meeting him in person some day.
Kelsey and Kirby have been more than interns during the past 7 months. Among many other things, they have served tirelessly along with our staff and have become very close with many of the children we have the pleasure to work with.
We thought you would enjoy hearing directly from them about their experiences with the children and about what an enormous impact each of you have had on their lives.
Over the next few weeks we plan to release a series of new short clips highlighting some of what’s been happening in Uganda these past few months. We’re calling this short series “Promise of Hope” and pray that it encourages and inspires you.
One of the things we enjoy most is meeting people who share our desire to help the children, give them a sense of purpose and provide them with hope. Patrick is a young man we were introduced to over a year ago and who we love dearly. He has been working along side our team in Uganda, and if you’ve traveled to Uganda with us you’ve probably met him.
Patrick also has a ministry of his own. All this while still in school. Patrick is an incredibly talented artist and art student who sells his works and uses part of the proceeds to provide mosquito nets to those in need.
In January, we caught a brief glimpse of Patrick’s story and wanted to share it with you.
