The past 2 weeks we have been blessed to have a team of people from America helping us out here in Masese! We built 2 water harvesting tanks-one for a local school, and another for a community center on a nearby island! Everyday these 10,000 liter, cement tanks will serve the children and adults of our community! Our hope: that we will be able to help the people here understand that when they drink this water, they will thirst again and again, but when they draw from the spring of Christ, they will never be thirsty; His water is everlasting, eternal, forever! That is our prayer!





Thank you all for coming to serve with us! Thank you for being the “hands and feet” of Christ to the people of Uganda! You have impacted many lives…you have been a BLESSING!!!


House update…
Currently we have 7 babies in the house! Each of them has a unique story…a story of how God has brought them to be here at Serving His Children! Detailed stories to come...


Twin brothers, Katoyia and Kakulu (7 months)

Katoyia on July 3rd / Katoyia Today


Twin brother and sister, Waswia and Zakia (age 8 months)

Shadia (age 4 months)
Sharifa (age 1 year)

Sophia (age 16 months)

And, of course Selah had to make it in here… Side note: we went to court a few weeks ago, and finished all of our paperwork; I was granted legal guardianship, and Selah now has a passport!!! But, keep praying…her guardianship order is missing a few key things that are needed to obtain a visa. So frustrating…
