The battle is over!

The battle is over!

After a year long battle, God worked a miracle this past June and the contested land title we thought was lost was safely recovered, with the help of the local government and police station. As some of you may remember we ran into some troubles after purchasing 4 acres of land for the organization and someone we had trusted had turned on us. God used that difficulty to show us how to rally the community and local government to help us reclaim the land title. If we hadn’t had this battle we never would have met the governor, mayor, and so many community members that stood up for us this past year. We learned many lessons and understand how to navigate the political arena a bit more, as well as how to stay safe in the future.

Thank you for all the prayers and support during this difficult year of struggle. Now that we have survived the battle what do we do next? First thing is to breathe and let the dust settle to allow for a peaceful way forward.

The mud house on the land got a makeover and has 2 rooms now and a beautiful new roof and brick walls. We hope this will allow the community to see us as continuing on but also allow for a slow transition into a bigger facility we someday want to move towards. We planted several mango trees for shade in the future and to bring life to a barren land. We are very thankful to be where we are and following God’s timing amidst it all.

Lastly and most important, our 24 kids are studying in nearby boarding schools that we have partnered with in mbale and tororo. These kids have grown over the past 2 years and their smiling faces remind us why we do what we do. Each time I visit I am surprised by the all the hugs and smiles that greet me.
