Just a quick note to let you know that God has provided, through many of you, the funds that we need to build a security wall and gate around Victory House. Incredibly, He provided that $3900 in only 5 days. I sent it to Uganda with our June support, and construction will begin tomorrow. Wow! Thank you so much for your prayers and your generous hearts. This has been such an encouragement to those who were traumatized by the break-in. Please continue to pray for protection and emotional healing.
Also, I wanted to let you know that we received a new group of 6 children on Monday, and they are now all fully sponsored. What a blessing to have sponsors waiting! If you know anyone interested in sponsorship, have them fill out the sponsor form online (victory127.com/sponsor), and I will contact them when the next group arrives. We are now a family of 140! Praise God!
This is one of our new children, Herbert Mukisa. Herbert’s father died of complications from AIDS in March, leaving behind 8 children. Herbert’s mother is roasting maize at the evening market to try to support her children, but as you can imagine, there is no money for school. A sweet family in Pennsylvania is now bringing Herbert stability, love, and hope!
Thank you so much to all of you who are investing, encouraging, and praying for your children. If you haven’t written to them recently, or if you are a new sponsor and haven’t introduced yourself to your child, please do! They will be so excited to hear from you. Email all letters to firstname.lastname@example.org and put your child’s first and last name in the subject line. I will forward to Uganda & our team will print and deliver.
On this Father’s Day weekend a big thank you to all of you fathers who work so hard for your families and love your wives and children well. But no matter what kind of earthly father you have had, know that our Heavenly Father loves you with a fierce and everlasting love. Very few of our 1:27 children have fathers, but Psalm 68:5 tells us:
“ A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.”
A Father to the fatherless...what a promise! Hallelujah!
