One day to go.

Hello again from Uganda.

Three saints from the US have come to celebrate the Women of Hope retreat and to learn more about Divine Holistic Ministries. They have been such a blessing! I look forward to continuing our relationship back in the states.

It is Friday. The Friday before the Saturday that I fly home.  I have so many mixed emotions. Above all, I feel so blessed to be able to come here and be a part of such a wonderful ministry.

I can’t wait to tell you all all about it.

Yesterday we followed a meandering foot path up a steep hillside to visit on of the WOH’s home.  It is a mud and stick house that is in poor condition.  This women has raised 6 children in this tiny 2 room mud house.  She asked us to pray for her and her children and grandchildren.  She is a widow and live is very hard.

We visited several homes

and prayed over and for the families. We prayed for God’s provision of a safe home, food, work and health. So much need, but such love for God and faith in His provision.

 

Yesterday, we distributed a package of 5 kg of rice and 2 kg of sugar  per woman, to a group of Women of Hope.  For the women it would make about 3 meals for a family, but you would think it was so much more. We danced, and celebrated.  Each women came and thank each one of us individually.

The ladies began to make their long walk home with their packages, some came up and asked us to pray for them.  What an honor and thrill to be used by God in this way. Soon many women came.
