Change For Change

Last weekend, I was part of a heartwarming project that will benefit the children from LWB’s Believe in Me Kabale school in Uganda. This was a relatively easy project to do with the youth at my church, and one which I believe can have a real impact on both the children at the school in Uganda but also the children here in the U.S. who have been inspired to help.

Thank you to the Abiding Presence Lutheran youth groups for assembling 40 CHANGE FOR CHANGE coin collection jars. Each family took a jar home, and we had some to spare so other families in the congregation could participate in this fundraiser to bring hope to the village. Read more

Uganda: Forever In My Heart

Uganda.

It’s hard for me to even begin to describe our visit to Karukoba Village, location of one of our newest Believe in Me schools. I had longed for the chance to travel and see the beauty of the country as well as the people that Love Without Boundaries CEO Amy Eldridge wrote about just last summer, and I was grateful to have the opportunity to visit Uganda last month with volunteer Christina Lindseth. I knew it would be an experience that would impact me forever in a profound way. Read more.

Uganda: Part Four

I hope you have enjoyed getting to know the children from Karukoba village in Uganda a bit more, although I am sure you are like me in finding it difficult to know they are facing so many challenges. You might also be thinking that you are happy this blog series is now done, since I know I write far too much each time. (Hence my difficulty with Twitter!)

On my final night in the village, I asked some of the local people why they feel the region has remained in a cycle of poverty. Read more.

Uganda: Part One

Several weeks ago, I shared the exciting news that LWB has decided to “live up to our name” and help orphaned and impoverished children beyond the boundaries of China. Over the next few days, I want to tell you about my August trip to Uganda.

In particular, I want to introduce you to the children from a village in the far southwest corner of the country, a stone’s throw from Rwanda, because I know they will touch your heart the way they have completely stolen mine. Read more.
