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!

Thirteen children in diapers....

Thirteen children in diapers means a lot of laundry every day!!!! Dinah, our laundry lady is very much appreciated. Esspecially on a day like today, when the power is off. It means that she has to do it by hand and it is for sure a lot of work! The nice thing in Uganda is that it dries very quickly and when Dinah brings it from the cloth lines, we all help folding and it is a nice social gathering. The children are then doing their nap, only the feeding of the baby's, that goes on, it never stops....
I also want to let you know that the blog writing may change a little bit. I am leaving tomorrow for Holland. I will take my two daughters, Sarah and Helen with me. We are going for medical reasons. Sarah her CD4 has dropped a lot and we are going to a special HIV children's clinic in Rotterdam. Another big concern is Sarah's heart condition, we are going regular to the heart institute in Kampala. But it is not improving, they are talking about place a device in her, but they don't do that in Uganda. I have also appointments with the peadiatric cardiologist in Rotterdam. Í want to ask your prayers for our trip. I will be in touch with Amecet, so from time to time I will write on our blog.

  1. Safe travels to Holland, and may God's face shine on you, Sarah and Helen. May Sarah's CD4 count rise with the help of the Lord through the children's HIV clinic in Rotterdam or by a miracle. God is good. May Helen's heart be strengthened and envigorated. May wisdom be given to the paediatric cardiologist in Rotterdam. God is with you Els and with your children. May he continue to show his favour towards all of you. God bless and keep you.
