Our Soroti Experience…
Our work in Uganda has been in partnership with Hines Ugandan Ministries, reaching out to children and families in the town of Kamonkoli and the surrounding area. We are rejoicing that we have now added another ministry sight in the town of Soroti, in partnership with a local church committed to ‘preaching the gospel to the poor’ and ‘healing the broken-hearted’. We’ve begun by sponsoring 50 of the neediest families.
Our team had the wonderful opportunity of sharing hope in a tangible way as we visited Soroti, about a two-hour drive from Kamonkoli. What a grand welcome we received! They ran to meet us in the road, cheering and waving flags, before we ever reached the church!
We shared in a meaningful time of worship; and then as we met the families and children, we distributed clothes, baskets of food, and seed packets for planting vegetables to the sponsored families. There was such joy and gratitude for the simplest gifts!
We pray that the Gospel will spread in this community and that as Jesus is lifted up, He will draw the people to Himself!
