Simon Update: He’s Going Home!

August 22, 2014

What a hard, yet miraculous, journey it’s been for Simon! While the story isn’t over yet, we have come to the end of a chapter, and this ending wouldn’t have been possible without the generosity and prayers of many.

A few months ago, we announced to you that Simon was in the United States undergoing multiple procedures at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville, TN. These procedures have gone well. In fact, they’ve gone so well that Simon and Anna, his mother, will be traveling back to Uganda earlier than expected.

For some time, Simon wasn’t able to eat any solid foods. He let us know that once he was able to swallow again, he would like to, “eat a whole cow.”

Well, we haven’t been able to give him a cow, but rumor has it that he did eat five hot dogs for lunch one day.

Simon and Anna head home next week and, if all goes well, he will continue to eat solid foods! Please pray for their trip, for continued health and restoration, and for an easy transition.

Thank you ALL for your support. Thank you to Simon’s doctors in the United States and in Uganda. Thank you to our amazing team. Thank you to Simon’s gracious and loving mother, Anna. Thank you, God, for your faithfulness, provision, love, and power!

Singing in Masese

August 11, 2014

As all the children begin trickling into the clearing where Masese school is located, you can see them carrying plates, cups, bowls, eagerly awaiting their heaping bowl of beans and posho to be served piping hot from the kitchen.

There are many children who come and they can spend hours around this area waiting for, what is for some of them, their only meal of the day.

Exciting things are happening in Masese which we are just itching to tell all about! More on that will be coming soon, but for now, please take a minute to watch these sweet faces and say a prayer for them today!

Meet Desire

August 07, 2014

Desire is 8 years old and has dreams of becoming a nurse one day. When she is at school, she works hard and is always positive. This past year she performed 2nd in her class! If she’s not at school, she loves playing with her doll, Sarah, skipping rope, and playing football.

When we asked Desire if there was anything she’d like to say to her sponsors, she responded, “May God bless them.”

Thank you to the Amazima sponsors who have joined hands with us to educate and empower Desire. We can’t wait to see Desire reach her dreams!

Big Yields

July 07, 2014

In Uganda, about 75% of the population is engaged in some type of agriculture. For many, it is the sole income for their family and their only source of food. One can imagine the anxiety that comes with waiting to see if the crop is going to be sufficient during harvest time.

With conventional farming practices, the average Ugandan produces 200 kilograms of beans per acre. Using the methods of Farming God’s Way, a conservation farming technique, the Amazima farm is producing 750-900 kilograms of beans per acre!

Can you believe the difference?!?

Day of an African Child

June 16, 2014

Today, all of Uganda pauses to reflect on their greatest strength.

Today is the Day of the African Child.

This year the focus was placed on the importance for all children to receive a quality education.

Mentor Annet wrote a poem and a song for a select group of Amazima children to perform at the ceremony. Annet said that the children performed well and were very appreciated.

Today we stop to value and cherish the children of this continent and of Uganda in particular.

We are blessed beyond measure by the children God has placed in our lives here.

We hope you enjoy their performance!
