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!

Our staff was blessed!

 This is our staff!!!They are the people we can trust with the care of the children, it is a big group: we are at the moment with 29 staff and 4 volunteers! I am proud of them and we wanted to bless them today with a special meal. Everybody came for it, and we had a great time!
 The bigger children helped decorating the little cupcakes.
 And then the food came, which we had ordered in town, so that the kitchen would not be overloaded. We ate pork, cooked on a special way with potatoes, onions and tomatoes. We put it on big dishes and everybody sits around it and eats. While there is alot of talking and laughing!

Even little Job, who can sit now by himself, joined in!
After the meal we had cakes and sweets inside  and everybody could help her/him self! 

And everybody enjoyd the swallow-fellow ship together!
Tomorrow, half of the team will be on holidays. They will have a week off and will celebrate Christmas with their families. Then when they come back, the other half goes home, to celebrate New year with their families. As our YWAM base closes, we can't do that, we have a house with 18 children to care for. It is quite a puzzle to make the rota work, with the night shift and all the babies who have to be fed. When I hang the rota on our bulletine board, everybody came to see when and how they were put on the rota!! I am thankful for their commitment and their hard work!
