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!

Stories from Holland... and news from Soroti...

Again some news from us. We are enjoying our holiday very much. We had 3 days with nice warm weather, but for the rest it is rainy, windy weather. We have visited many friends and we enjoy the nice house they gave us to use! Sarah and Helen are very open to play and to make friends. Here they enjoy the friendship with Mirjam de Rijke. It is very nice to see them communicating and having fun together, two languages, but still a lot of laughing and fun.
Helen got her late birthday present. She choose this doll. And she called her Angela. At night she puts her next to her in bed. But last night Angela gave her a fright, Angela felt out of bed and woke up the two girls, at first they thought there was someone, but then they realised it was Angela. They left her on the floor!

Today it was windy and a bit rainy. Janneke Slegh was visiting us, Janneke has been several times with us in Amecet and it was nice to see her again, also Helen and Sarah know her very well. We took a boat ride with the ferry and the sun was out and it waqs a great experience.

Here we are standing at a wind organ on the beach in Vlissingen. The organ is made from bamboo and the wind plays through the pipes. There was a lot of wind, so a lot of music.

I have had some contacts with Amecet this week. Everything goes well there. The only sad thing is that the little pussycat was killed by the dogs. It sneeked out in the night, then are the dogs out, so the little thing had no chance against four dogs!

The little baby Patrick is doing very well, his weight went up from 1.8 kg to 2.7 kg!!! Some baby's will be going home in the next couple of days, but there will be probably a twin coming in Amecet. They are in the feeding centre in the Hospital, but now is the mother fallen sick and needs to be admitted in the hospital herself. So the plan was that the twin baby's will be taken into Amecet until the mother is strong enough to care for them herself.
