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!

Happy UHURU day!!!

Today Uganda celebrates 52 years Independence. It is a Public Holiday and in the towns there is marching in the centres of town. Of course, we can' t be free, for Amecet it is a normal working day. The cook is there to cook, the laundry lady to wash the dirty diapers and all the caretakers to take care of the children. The children were free form school and we have a house full!
Here are Walter (the boy I wrote about in my last blog) and Max on the Slide. 
 Cathy and Ruth are jumping in the trampoline, enjoying their free day from school.
 Max is walking so much!! He even can walk by him self, but here he pushes Walter around!
We wanted to bless our staff today, for coming to work on a public holiday! And we ordered a special lunch for everybody!
 The whole veranda full with happy eating people.
 We ordered pork from a place in town. It comes on one plate and everybody sits around it and eat! Even the little one's are enjoying it!
 The aunties are also eating and enjoying their soda!
 Gabdesia was sick this week, she had again severe malaria. It is very hard to get her eating and even drinking. But today she joined the group and she is eating the pork and potatoes!
Uncle Elias was the person to get the food and he receives his Pepsi from Emma.

I wrote in my last blog about the 2 brothers. The oldest boy, Walter, is doing really good, we treated him for his malaria and now he is playing all over the place, as you can see on these pictures. We have put a picture of them in the local Newspaper and asked people to contact us, when they recognise the two boys. Walter mentioned the name of a village, so Simon took him there to see and to ask people if they knew him, but all in vain, nobody recognised him. The little baby Thomas is not doing so well. He doesn't want to drink enough. We waited a bit, but today I put a NG tube down, so we can feed him while he is even sleeping. Maybe in a couple of days, he will pick up and start drinking himself, so we will take out the tube again.
Please keep praying for the two boys and their situation. That we will find their relatives.
