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!

Ang Tulay is going on.

 This is fun, singing together. We see that the children enjoy it very much, they are very open to share and we really see them grasping what we share together. After the singing we listen together to a story, which points to the topic from that session. After the story we go into 6 groups and we talk about the topic and there is always a creative way of handling the topic. There are also 3 teachers and 3 staff members of Amecet, they form together the Adult group, they go through the same topics, but they deal of course with them on another way.
This afternoon we talked about Trust, what is trust, what if your trust is broken, who do you trust etc.
After all the talking we did this exercise, in pairs walking around, while one of the two is blindfolded and has to trust his/her partner. It was fun and when we afterwards, talked about it with the children, we got good feedback.
A big circle, singing and dancing.
Amecet is operating as usual, Anneke, the Dutch nurse is still there and we have some other volunteers to help. It is really busy, because there are always things which need, Simon, Elias or me. Yesterday we were called by  one of the secondary schools, one of our girls we sponsor, was very sick, if we could come directly to pick her. Simon went there and came back with a half unconscious girl in the car. We took her directly to the clinic next to Amecet and she had a very bad malaria and a serious urine tract infection. She was put on Iv drip. This morning she came to Amecet and she is much better than yesterday, we will keep her in Amecet, until she is well. On Monday a father came to plead if we could take his 1 month old baby, his wife was admitted in the hospital, she was very sick and unconscious, HIV+. We took the baby in and we pray that the mother will recover. So our life is very busy, but it is also exciting to see what is going on and to be part of this!
