Publishers Clearing House in Uganda???
You would think so!
I mean that’s what it seriously feels like each year when we interview the ‘neediest of the needy’ widows, left to raise their orphaned grandchildren, deep in the village of one of the most destitute areas of Uganda.
If you can…imagine this?
…they have lost their husband and now, without any time to grieve the death of their own children
…opened their humble leaking thatched roofed, mud hut to their now, orphaned grandchildren
…when they don’t have a clue where their own next meal is coming from!!
would numbers help you imagine? The average number of children our grannies have in their care is 5.5…one of our grannies has 14!
There is nothing more humbling
It is obvious throughout scripture…that God cares for widows & orphans…and because He does…we do/can too!
but to actually SEE it happen before our very eyes..
AND to be the one’s called by God to deliver that news to them is a privilege that there are no words for…
but a picture is worth a thousand of them right??
What happens when a destitute widow raising her orphaned grandchildren hears that her prayers for provision have been heard and answered?
Sharing that picture of HOPE with you from deep in the village of the “Pearl of Africa”
P.S. wish you were here 🙂
Out of the hearts of babes!
We’ve never even met Cassandra in person…
but already her reputation precedes her…at 10 years old!
We are always amazed and often amused at the ways God builds a team to take seriously His command to look after orphans & widows in their distress…
but when we came home one day to find this oatmeal container of cash donations from a lemonade stand for orphans…collected by the same young lady that celebrated her 9th birthday by requesting that people would please bring a donation for widows & orphans of THE WAY HOME instead of a present for her…we knew where the heart of her motivation came from 🙂
Praise God for His work in the hearts of Children for His Glory !
“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God” 1 Corinthians 10:31
OUTSTANDING in their field!!!
…And we do mean that both literally and figuratively!!
As you look through this pre-harvest window deep into the villages of Luuka and Namatumba, ENJOY the fruit of these courageous and hard working Granny’s labor, with us.
They are proud..we are prouder…and surely God is most proud as these granny-families have begun to thrive by applying the principles of Farming God’s Way to their lives and their farms. They AND their gardens are visible, living testimonies of God’s abundant provision.
Praise God from whom ALL blessings flow….
Pray-paring for ABUNDANCE!
ABUNDANCE!!! what a great problem to have in the village where food is scarce and lives hang in the balance every day.
This is the ‘problem’ we have in Luuka district where our widowed grannies have now been convinced that if they FARM & LIVE God’s Way He WILL provide abundantly beyond what they could hope or imagine…and they have the visible ‘fruit’ to prove his promise!
SO WE PRAYpare for His abundant provision this growing season with our newly designed secure additions of STOREHOUSES to enable these granny-families to eat, pay for school fees, and even have an income from their abundant harvest provided by the Lord!
A WONDER TO BEHOLD…God’s faithful provision to HIS faithful widowed grannies who have taken on the responsibility to raise their orphaned grandchildren. Glory to God!
“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ Matthew 25:23
TWH ‘s Marathoner time 4:34 = 4:34 LIVES changed
NO COINCIDENCE in Her finish time
God ALONE could only have sovereignly planned to provide homes in Uganda for 4 widowed grannies raising their 34 orphaned grandchildren through Trisha Brayton AgerMarathon finish in 4 hours:34 minutes.
God asked our good friend Trisha to run for orphans…she answered that call and finished the race with perseverance to change the whole world for 4 grannies + 34 orphans in 4 hours 34 minutes…all THE WAY HOME for them !!!
Thank you Trisha & dedicated team of supporters to the least of these here. We are overwhelmed with your dedication..
