FOLLOW THE LEADER
We have witnessed a severe need in Uganda, and it is evident that God is up to something for the sake of the children there. This knowledge is our opportunity to join our heavenly Father where He is at work. Therefore, we bring our talents wholeheartedly.
By the way, God is also up to something within us… namely, that our hearts would break for those in pain, and that our wallets and talents would be open to the needs of others.
BIBLICAL BASIS FOR OUR RESPONSE
We believe in the Great Commission in which Jesus charges us to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). We believe in James 1:27, which says “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” We believe that Christians are the body of Christ on the earth…his hands and feet…to care for those in need.
Christ said “Let the little children come to me”… we want to help them do that very thing. But we know the Gospel is hard to swallow if you have no food or water or clothing. We believe in a holistic approach that addresses the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the children of “M”.
INTERNATIONAL MISSIONS AND RECOVERY
Our first objective is to improve the day-to-day conditions for the children at “M”.
We foresee an opportunity to make long-term impact on this area of Uganda. If this works out, we will pursue a solution that provides for holistic recovery. That is, a village for children where Ugandans take the lead in rebuilding a family-like structure…where physical, emotional, and spiritual needs are provided for. We believe strongly that, in this case, our role would be to equip Ugandans to take the lead in their own recovery. We believe that a high calling would be to usher kids towards leadership positions where they can positively impact their own country.
