Happy Birthday uncle Simon..

We celebrated Simon's birthday today! The real day was yesterday, but that was a hectic day again, so today was better. The smaller children "helped" him with blowing the candles. Birthdays are not so much celebrated in Uganda, but we feel that it is good to thank God for this "birthday baby" and pray together for him. Of course the nice goodies are also very welcome! Simon is a big blessing to the Amecet ministry, he is quite busy, this year he started a part time study for Social Worker and he also has his own family.
This is a picture of Joseph 2, the baby who was born in the prison. And Thursday, he completely refused to drink, we had to feed him by NG tube. But now he is drinking well again and we can see that he is more happy and at peace. I really believe that he has gained, his face looks so different than 3 days ago. That is so encouraging!


  1. Dear Simon. Happy birthday to you! May God bless you also this year of your life. Give greetings to Josephine, your children and the workers at Amecet.
    Amecet has still a place in our heart.
    Greetings with love.
    Kim and Anjo Lawler
