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!

Our Amecet Wall of Fame

When a child arrives in Amecet, we always take a picture. That picture stays in their file, but we also put the picture on our "Wall of Fame".  Every child who has lived in Amecet has his/her picture on our wall. Some stayed long, others a short time, some a very short time. Many children have passed away and they have a star behind their name. We will still remember them!
There are at the moment around 530 pictures  and the wall was full, so we rearranged our Wall of Fame. We asked a carpenter to put two big soft boards on the wall and yesterday and today I have been hanging the pictures back. They are all numbered, so we keep them in order. Number one is Sarah, my daughter, God really used her to be the inspiration to set up Amecet! I must say that I enjoyed hanging back the 530 pictures. All memories came back, so many stories, about Esther, who died on New years eve, because the electricity went off and she was on the oxygen machine, or Brenda, who was saved from the shrine of the witchdoctor, she was to be sacrificed, she was doing very well in Amecet. Then we had two little sisters Grace and Lois, their parents had died and everybody in the village said that they had AIDS, we took them in Amecet, went to the doctor and the tests were done and we could bring them back to their relatives with the result that they were HIV-.
Then there was Augustine, Timothy, the twins Esther and Martha, baby Jesse, baby Anna and so many more! We have so many stories, hanging at our wall!! I am so thankful to God, that He enables us to minister to those children. And my prayer is that we keep listening to Him, to know what to do.

And see the result!

The last news about Fiona, the 15 years old girl who is so very sick is, that she is in critical condition. I think she will pass away very, very soon. It is so sad to see her in this condition, she is so skinny, and so weak. I hardly believe that she stayed with us for so long. Pray for her mother and also for us, in Amecet, we love her a lot, but we don't want her to suffer more.
