Not everything is beautiful

Christmas season might not be the right time frame for posting some of the more difficult things here in Uganda, but this is a reality for millions in this world whether its Christmas or not.  I love taking pictures, but its hard to post the negative and more difficult stories.  I’m not a photojournalist and don’t know how to tell hard stories as of yet.  It feels like some kind of extortion, but the stories are everywhere.  This is a story that came through here at New Hope.  There will always be needs in this world, and I’m glad we are where we are for this season sharing Christ’s love and being able to encourage people.

Hello New hope family,

This serves to bring to your attention that we have a need for a new house in our community.  Last week I went to the community and it so happened that I landed on this particular family of grandmother of around 75 years old with 6 orphans and all of them are her grand children,their age range is from 4-14years as you can see in the pictures attached.
Their house is in dangerous state that it can fall at any time,it has cracks all over  with leaking iron roof and the walls are checking seriously. We don’t have any sponsored child in this family currently but we have just shortlisted one.

I was also told that this old lady used to come to Kasana community church but now she is old and can’t walk up to here and back but she goes now to Pr Kamoomo’s Church in Mabaale.  So please, any contribution towards helping this family is highly appreciated.

For any other inquiry please you can see me.

In Christ alone,

I can’t imagine this being my situation.  It’s hard to see some of the things here, but it’s also good to see the local church stepping in and helping where they can.  If anything, just remember there are people in a worse situation than you might be in, and we have so much to be thankful for.  Thanks for your part in helping us be here so we can extend our abilities to our local community.  The beauty of Uganda is easy to capture and share, the hard things are not so easy.  From the words of Jesus,  ” I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world.” -John 16:33
