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!

Only SIX days to go.......

Today we left Soroti to travel to Kampala. It is a drive from about 6 hours. Simon was driving and I had my whole family with me (Sarah, Helen and Catherine) and also Mary joined us. It is the first time we traveled with Catherine, but it went well, I had a lot of help from Sarah and Mary.

There are two people coming from Holland who are representing the organisation the Figurant. And the Figurant helped us to get the funding for the Playgarden we are building. So they come to see the result and be part of the handing over of the playground to the community. They will

arrive tomorrow night, but we went a day early to use this opportunity to go for review to the heart specialist with Sarah. Travelling to Kampala is tiresome, so to combine this is good for the energy and the finances.

We travel quite well in our Amecet van, as you see in the first picture and we also did some shopping in one of the big malls in Kampala. Catherine had the time of her life, behind the wheel of the shopping cart. We sleep in a guesthouse in Kampala and tomorrow morning early we go to the hospital. That will be probably many hours of waiting, but that is part of life here in Africa!
