March 18, 2015 - School Supplies
Uganda (MNN) — A 40-foot shipping enclosure is on a approach to Uganda to denote “Afayo.” Afayo means “He cares” in Lusoga and is a concentration of missionaries with Every Child Ministries (ECM) portion among a Naigobya community.
The Afayo Project uses encampment schools as an entrance for reaching out to communities with a adore of Jesus. Through a school, missionaries strech out not usually to a teachers and students, though also to a church, a parents, a orphans, encampment leadership, and eventually a whole community.
“We’re flattering vehement about removing that things in a Naigobya community,” shares ECM’s Mark Luckey, as he helped bucket a enclosure with supplies.
“We’ve got a lot of things for a waif project: propagandize supplies, books, clothing, toys; things for a vocational program; medical supplies.”
The Hillcrest Christian Reformed Church in Hudsonville, Michigan, is assisting ECM accumulate and boat a supplies. Each organisation had attempted unsuccessfully for years to send propagandize reserve to a Afayo Project.
“We had a brainstorm one day that if we put a heads together, partnered together, we could do this thing,” Luckey notes.
A Hudsonville propagandize also helped by donating a aged seat to Hillcrest and a Afayo Project.
“We’ve got propagandize desks and propagandize tables, chairs, and things like that; a lot of books to start a library,” says Luckey, adding that they’re also operative with SonSet Solutions (formerly a HCJB Global Technology Center).
ECM and Hillcrest are adding a solar-powered SonSet Radio to their shipping container, that will be set adult subsequent to purify H2O wells in a Naigobya community. Every time women and children come to fetch H2O during a well–a routine that mostly lasts during slightest 30 minutes, they can learn about Living Water.
“You can play Christian radio, we can play Christian music; we can play sermons,” Luckey explains.
ECM, Hillcrest CRC, and SonSet Solutions are teaming adult to grasp one common goal: reaching a Naigobya encampment for Christ.
“To move a container-load of propagandize reserve is a good thing to do and can be useful in a community, though it unequivocally is dull in a prolonged run,” explains Luckey.
“Really it’s about bringing a whole Gospel of Jesus.”
As ECM missionaries accommodate simple needs of a Naigobya by a Afayo Project, they benefit an event to share Christ.
“We can say, ‘Hey, this is good, though we’ve got something even improved for you,’” says Luckey.
“We’re providing wish for today–meeting needs, assisting kids get an education–but also bringing them a bargain that Jesus loves them, God loves them; there is wish for perpetuity for them,” Luckey states.
Pray that a enclosure arrives safely in Uganda, and that a Gospel is clearly communicated by a Afayo Project.
