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!

Music parade in Amecet

Two of our baby's went home today! Kenneth and Elisabeth, and Elisabeth is the little baby, weighing only 1100 grams when she came in. Now she is a healthy, even fat looking baby! It is a joy to give them back to the relatives. We invited them both on our Come back  days, we have every 6 weeks, so we keep track of them and we can help still a little bit. My last blog was about Ruth. Yesterday we went with her to Kumi, to check again for her foot. The doctor agreed with us that the splint didn't do much and he decided that he should operate her. So coming Monday we have to be there at 8 am and he will do the procedure. We can take her home after some hours. It is good that she is still with us, we will decide after Monday if she can go home to her mother on Friday or that we postponed that a little.
Than we had a music parade in the garden today. Ella, one of our short term volunteers had a music time with the children in the garden. They all had music instruments and they had a great time! They were singing and making music and they did all kind of rhythms together.
 Then they decide they would march through the garden and the house, making music. They felt all like the brass band of Soroti! It was so beautiful to see!

  1. Hello!
    My name is Dan and my wife and I currently live in South Africa. We have been a part of YWAM for over 10 years and now work with Floyd Mcclung in Cape Town. When I led a DTS out of Kona back in 2005 I had the complete privilege to visit Amecet because one of our teams was serving there. I completely fell in love with the children and your ministry. All that to say, now 7 years later my wife and I are really feeling led towards adoption. Needless to say, Amecet has come to mind in the midst of our process and I just wanted to see if there were any children up for adoption? Do people adopt straight from Amecet? Would love to hear from you. Blessings! Dan... (
