Merry Christmas and Happy New 2018!
We hope God grants you peace and time with your family this Christ. We are so appreciative for all of our friends, family and partners across the world- thank you for being in our lives! So…the biggest news for us this year…WE ARE STILL WORKING ON COMPLETING THE ORPHANAGE HOME! We’re looking forward to move the kids in by next year-2018 from renting to their own facility.
This December our very own Kids from Samuel’s Kids are preparing for the Upcoming Kids’ Camp from 11th-15th Dec, 2017 in Uganda expecting to reach out 1,400 kids from nearby communities as a Christmas event to share Christ with them. “We share the real meaning of Christmas and tell them about the gift of life Christ offers to all who believe.” Because of your generous gifts each year, thousands of children are invited to special Christmas Party, feeding them as they hear the clear message of the Gospel spoken in simple terms they can understand. Each of our team members stays vigilant to be true to the Bible and what God teaches. Jesus Christ came to this earth, born as a tiny baby – fully man, fully God – to give us an opportunity to all who believe to have eternal life with Him.
Samuel’s Visit in U.S.A…
I cannot believe my Three months trip in the States went by so fast! I will be heading back home this weekend with gifts from most of you waiting to share all the love and joy from friends and partners back with kids. I had a very busy travel schedule these past three months one different state per week sometimes. I visited/spoke in Chicago, KY, TN, IL, N.C, CA, AZ, GA, OH (with several I was in twice like KY and IL) going through different other States. It was my honor to be speaking and share about our mission in Uganda in those Churches, families and different groups with an opportunity to sell our merchandise from Kids trying to raise funds for the orphanage.
