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!

Amun week has ended.

This morning we all said goodbye to one another and we gave out the little Christmas gifts for their families. Everybody was in good moods and it was a happy gathering.
After the last goodbye's they all climbed in the school truck and Simon was going to bring them to town. He put them all on the different vehicles, going to their respective villages. Talked with the drivers and making sure that they were all in the right vehicle.
And here drives Simon the truck out of our compound. It is probably the last trip, because the government doesn't allows the schools to use trucks anymore. The plan is to use this long holiday (2 months) to build the truck into a bus. If we manage to get the funds for this operation.
So all the children are on their way home and we are cleaning up. It was a fantastic week, but very busy, I had also still some things to do with Amecet, which is quite full. Janneke was great, she kept Amecet going and she had also many patients going for a malaria test. I think 12 children went for a test, because they were not feeling well. And around 6 had malaria, so Janneke started them on malaria treatment. We had a great team, Margaret, Julius, Andrew, Jane and Samuel from the YWAM base, we also had a great kichten crew, with extra hands from Simon and Emma. And a special thank you to Dominique, Bernard, Elias, Esther, Ann and Simon, they really were working so hard!!  But it was all worth the effort, I think we have sown many seeds in the hearts of the children and encouraged them to believe in themselves!
