Dear Friends, partners and co-workers in Christ,
Greetings in the wonderful name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
We always thank God for you, our words cannot express our heartfelt appreciation but we believe your labor in the Lord is not in vain. This is our prayer for you
On the behalf of the Great Harvest Missions- Sponsorship Program beneficiaries, we thank God that the holidays have been successful. God has kept the kids and their families safe. The academic year 2016 began on 7th February.
As it has always been at this end, the month of February has been very busy for parents planning for the kids to go back to school.
A week before the beginning of the school program, kids gathered at Church for prayers and thanks giving and dedicating the beginning academic year to the Lord.
Together with the staff, the kids also prayed for the sponsors and prayed for their friends who have not yet received help to go back to school. The beginning of the year is always difficult that even the children in their homes and communities know its heaviness that whenever you ask for a prayer request that one can’t miss out. It’s so painful to hear a very young child raising such a prayer request, however on the other side we thank God for it because we are sharing the Word of God we teach them and also believe God answers the prayers of the young ones too.
As it’s always been with the program, also we provided for the children their school requirements so that they go to school well-prepared. These included exercise books, pens, mathematical sets and calculators. Also tooth paste, soap and body oil for their hygienic care.
Some kids who had come for exercise books, pens, soap, tooth paste and body oil.
Thank you for your continued support,
God bless you,
By now most of the children have gone back to school and thank God for all your efforts to make this work successful. Both the kids and their families are so grateful for you.
The National results are out now and we thank God that some of our children passed in Division one.
In Primary six we had Mutesi Chance in Division I and Ingabire Yvette passed in Division IV
In Senior Three we had Mico Derrick in Division I and Niyitanga Jacqueline in Division II and Chantal Uwase passed in Division IV
In Senior Six we had Mugisha Dany in Division I and Kalenzi Gael in Division III.
Dear friends, partners and well-wishers,
Greetings to you in the precious name of Jesus,
We want to thank God that the children have finished the year with success and celebrating what God has done through your love and generosity.
God has enabled us to have a celebration party remembering the unspeakable gift He has given us, the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. The children and those present were reminded that, since God has given us the best, His only son, there is nothing else He will withhold from those who love and trust Him. The children, staff and volunteers had a good time all together of among 200 who had gathered during this celebration.
Both the sponsored and non-sponsored were present, all happy thanking God of what He did in all previous years. It was both a good time of sharing spiritual food and physical food. Pastor Christian also shared a message from Nehemiah 4:4 where he was encouraging children who lost their sponsors to stand firm and don’t allow discouragements that come their way. He added that children must continue their faith in God, who only knows them, and deeply cares for them. In His timing, He will open doors for them to receive some help.
We had an opportunity also to celebrate the graduation of 26 children who graduated from high school last year, among them 14 of them were present on their graduation party. The rest were not able to be here because they were either at their new places of work, as some of them got work opportunities, and a few of them have been admitted in universities, as so they had classes to take and end of semester tests.
We want to thank you all for your prayers, and financial generosity. You allowed God to use you to make this happen, it was not easy, but God did it through your willingness to give and share from the little that you have.
Please be praying for this program, many children who lost sponsors, now hopeless not knowing what to do, and where to turn for help, their cries are heard from every corner, their external and internal tears are visible, and their prayers are hung and rise to the Lord.
We love you and appreciate you.
By His Grace
Some children received clothing as their Christmas presents, while all the children that graduated gave their testimonies of how the sponsorship helped them to finish this phase of their education, without which they would not have completed and how through the program, their livelihood and families were transformed. Iranzi Paul was so firm on this, that if it wasn’t the help of his sponsor, he couldn’t have reached this far, and now he has completed high school and now has hope for the future.
