Proud of our Widows

Proud of our Widows

There is nothing more reassuring than seeing these smiling faces succeed on their own. We planted an idea, a skill, into the minds of a few ladies and then stood back to watch if it would take hold. So far both the tailoring and now even the knitting has grown momentum. This is one of our ladies showing off the knitted caps she finished with no other help than the initial training she received back in February. We left her with the tools and the rest was up to her.

Next we have some crops that needed weeding and our very own students are helping with the work. These widows and young ladies are strong and dedicated.

The tailoring alongside the hair dressing classes are moving along at a great pace, all thanks to the team on the ground in Uganda working hard to continue our efforts. Who is this team? It’s local people from the country that understand the culture and knows how to get things done. God is great and has blessed us with a small group of men and woman we can partner with to impact lives for Christ. It’s more than handing out bibles and walking away, or even trips back and forth, it’s about these long term partnerships that will truly make a difference in the lives of orphans and widows. Time moves slower in Uganda but sometimes I think we move too fast in America and stress over every plan before just ‘doing’ something. If we can do this thousands of miles away than there is hope that through patience, endurance, and sticking to it God will continue to move mountains for us in the villages and in the hearts of people.
