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!

"Normal" daily life...

Today no spectacular or dramatic story, we have our daily life stories, but no day is the same.... Today Robert walked in our walker!! Just a little bit spectacular!!! Robert has been with us for a long time, he is now 10 months old and he came when he was just a couple days old. He is HIV+ but is doing very well. He has never crawled, but we think he will just skip that and start walking soon! He is a lovely boy and everybody loves him!
Then the two friends.... Cathy at the front (my daughter) and Jesica is  pushing her. Jesica came to Amecet in November, we are not sure about her age, maybe 2,5 years?? She doesn't talk, she just makes noises and when she does it in different tunes, it just likes if she is talking. It is amazing how she has changed.

She has her moods and she can change very fast from an angry face into a smiling face. But to see her changing into a normal little girl is really also spectacular!!

This is my last picture today: Sabine. This is also spectacular, when you see the picture, we used for our Xmas card (post on 30/12/2013) you see her picture, we have hope for her future, she was very sick, we have feared for her life, she has still a little hole in her heart, but the doctor says that it is closing!!  Now she is a beautiful little baby, who can smile so sweet, but also she has the loudest voice when she cries, that is also quite spectacular, for a baby with heart and lung problems.

So we do see a lot of beautiful things happening in Amecet, we have been very busy with the schools, YWAM has a preschool and a primary school. Last Monday the schools started again and there is always a lot of work to get them going. The school bus is not ready yet, but almost!!! We have also quite a number of secondary students, who have been living in Amecet in the past. We help them to go to boarding school. Some of them did not perform so well, we have offered them to change into a life skill training, like tailoring or carpentry. I will write about them another time.
