Amecet n'ainapakin (Shelter of Peace) is a ministry of Youth With A Mission (YWAM)in Soroti, Uganda. We are reaching out to HIV infected and affected children. We also are caring for new born babies, who lost their mother after the delivery. The third group of children we help, are children who need a safe place, they mostly come via the police. In this blog we want to share with you our stories, our pictures, our needs and blessings!

Paul: 5 days old
Rehema: 1 year and 9 months old
Betty: 7 months old
Sarah: 7 months old
Magdalena: 12 years old
Patrick: 2 weeks old
Polly: 6 years old
Peter: 1 months old
Paul: 9 months old
Moses: 3 weeks old

Today we remembered the children who passed away this year. Several staff members shared about them, so we talked about each of the ten children who died this year. It is always an emotional time, our whole Amecet family is gathered for this time, children and staff. We were reminded about the funny things Rehema could do or about how happy Polly was when she was still able to go to school. Also we talked about the suffering of Sarah and the very short life of Baby Paul. The pain of the last days of Polly was felt again, together we gave it back to God and thanked Him for the role we c0uld play in the lives of those precious children.
But then... we looked at the flowers which the children had picked, they were the picture of life and beauty and we had a great time of singing, clapping and dancing, thanking God for all those who came through and are doing well! We were thanking God for ARV medicines and for the life He gave us. Ofcourse we finished with drinking a bottle of soda together, a must at every Ugandan party!
