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!

To eat out with the family (31 adults,13 children and 13 babies!)

Today we went with our whole Amecet family to eat a meal out!
We had organised it in a kind of African village setting, with open places and ofcourse the weather was nice!
We wanted to appreciate our staff, we had printed T shirts for everybody and we just wanted to let them feel that they are special and that we value them.
We sang some songs and listened to a story, then we played a game, in this game we said appreciations to each other and it was really nice to see everybody joining in to give compliments to each other, also the children!
We made a baby corner, and from time to time the babies were fed, they were behaving really well, didn't cry much!
Then we ate together! Everybody enjoyed the meal, our cooks who didn't have to cook and nobody had to clean up and wash the dishes! We just ate, had fellowship and enjoyed each other!
At the end we made a group picture on the little bridge. When I see this big group of people I am so thank ful to God. We started so small, with two staff members (Helen and me) and see what a big group we have now.
We climbed in the YWAM bus and drove back to Amecet, everybody was happy and felt good.
