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!

Saturday = Pancakeday

Saturday is my free day (if possible) and I then bake pancakes for breakfast. Sometimes I forgot to buy eggs or flour, but then we borrow from Amecet kitchen! Today Helen was helping me (under close supervison!) and we baked a pile of very delicious pancakes.

We all enjoyed them and Helen did a great job!

 Almost 6 months ago Christine 2 came in Amecet, I wrote a Blog about her at the end of July 2011. (see picture left) A very malnourished 7 years old girl, she is also HIV+ and we went with her to the hospital and she was started on ARVs. She picked up and it is so good to see her enjoying life. She went together with Helen to the Topclass from the pre-school and their graduation was in December. On Monday she will start, together with Helen, in P1! Christine has always a sparkling in her eyes, she really enjoys what she is doing and she can be very naughty too! Today she showed me that she could ride the bicycle, and indeed she could, using the break is a bit complicated, so the breaking is done with the legs on the ground! Is this not encouraging???? This is why we do what we do, bringing life back into children and let them shine again! I thank God for Christine and that weare able to minister to children like her!!
