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!
While I am still in Holland, getting ready for the wedding of my nephew this week, I still have contact with Amecet. And I heard that Miranda and Simon are very busy.
Most of the concern goes to Christine 1, who is with us since Jan. 2011. We have been struggling with her a lot, but lately she got very sick. Christine is HIV+ and is also using the ARV medication, to slow down te growth of the HIV. This week she had to be admitted in Soroti Hospital, she is still very, very weak. Please pray for her, that she comes out of this deep dip.
Then we have also worries about Immaculate, also with us since Jan. 2011, same story as Christine, it goes up and down with her. She was also sick and needed IV medication, but when she is not feeling well, she just doesn't want to eat anymore. And last week she lost one kg. It takes so long to get that kg. back on. Please pray also for Immaculate, that she starts eating again. She needs the food, she will get again very weak when she doesn't eat.
This week also a new baby of 2 months came in Amecet, his weight is 2.4 kg! This baby needs a lot of feeding and care.
Then 3 children came in via the police. Two of them (5+10 years old) were brought because their parents seperated, the children stayed with the father, who married again. The stephmother tried to kill them, so it became a police case. The other child is 3.5 years old, her parents also seperated and are fighting for the girl. The police asked Amecet to look after the little girl untill the judge speaks during the court case where the little girl will go. Very sad stories!!
Miranda and Simon and all the other staffmembers are doing a great job, but it is not always easy. Please keep them in your prayers!
