Mama Kits At Work

22nd of April 2013

I got a lovely update from a woman who works with Uganda Baptist Seminary in Jinja this weekend.  She reports that they host about 100 pastors each month for classes.  She’s been passing out about 10-15 mama kits each month. “The students are SO THANKFUL for this gift that you provide that helps their wives […]


Honor your Mother

16th of April 2013

Nearly four years ago, a beautiful Ugandan woman gave birth to a baby girl.  What should have been a moment of joy, quickly turned into a moment of sorrow for this family as this brave, strong mother  lost her life.  I know this woman was beautiful, strong, and brave because I see a bit of her every […]


Challenge to Churches

11th of April 2013

Many churches give a small token gift to all of the mothers in the congregation for Mother’s Day.  But what if instead of a small gift for you your church decided to give a gift of hope to mothers in Uganda?  Last year several churches decided to do just that. From Pastor Nathan Gunter of […]


More Mama Kits at Work

26th of February 2013

The women of Pearl Haven Christian Centre in Mbale recently passed out mama kits in Dokolo Village in Northern Uganda.  They spent a day ministering to people who had come from all the neighboring villages at a local church. I love that I gave the church the kits months ago, but they saved them so they […]

Just a little FYI…

24th of January 2013

Just in case some of you have been trying to reach me via Facebook (which is how I communicate with most of you!) my account is frozen until who knows when.  It is beyond frustrating. I know it is totally a first-world problem, but it is annoying and keeping me from information and work that […]


On the Horizon…

18th of January 2013

I am doing what most everyone does at the beginning of the year.  I’m reflecting at all God has done in the past year and looking forward to this coming one.  It’s always amazing to me to look back on a year and think of all of the things God accomplished and how many of […]


From the Frontlines

17th of January 2013

Here is another great story of the mama kits in action.  This is from a rural health clinic operating with virtually no supplies.  This is their report of the first mama kit they used. “Harriet, age 20, having given birth to her first born: a baby boy, 2.8kgs. (6.1 pounds)Thank God: -for protecting her through the process of […]

Update on Mary

26th of December 2012

Great news!  I finally got word today that Mary and her baby boy are doing well.  He weighed more than they expected (5.5pounds).  Mom and baby continue to recover at a missionary’s home. Thank you so much to the people who gave toward her hospital stay.  You truly blessed this woman this Christmas.
