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!

Renovation......almost done.....

When the Dutch team left, Elias and Simon took over to organize the rest of the renovation. we got people to help, but especially Elias worked also a lot in Amect. When I asked Elias, when do you think we can move back???? He said December first....and that is tomorrow......
We don't make it that day, but we are very close in finishing.. I am so excited, it feels at if we get a new Amecet again, a little bit like 15 years ago, when we started Amecet.
 This is the new medical room, new cupboards, which also serve like tables where we can treat the children. The incubator in the corner, the Dutch team was able to repair this. We are busy to organize everything on such a way that we can work smoothly. All the open shelves have gone, because there are always little children who wander into the room and like to disorganize everything and you find it all on the floor. 
It will be so nice to work in this room!! We were cleaning today the floors, I hope we can bring in the beds and the furniture tomorrow. Elias and Emmanuel were scrubbing the floors, I helped a bit with trying to get all the water outside after the scrubbing.
Yesterday Emmanuel organized a special truck with a tank, to empty our septic tank. we have no sewage system here and all the toilets are connected with our septic tank, which was filling up... after 15 years of service! It would be good to do it now, when there are no children around, so yesterday the tank was emptied.
Simon organized the compound, all the pieces of our concrete floor were thrown in the compound, on the "road". It was helping against the mud, when it rains, but it was very  "child unfriendly". Many children walk without slippers so all the sharp stones made it too dangerous. So a truck with maram and it was mixed with a kind of glue (??) and it was to cover the stones. A man with a special machine was picked to make it all smooth and nice.
I will keep you informed of all what is happening, but it will be very nice and i am so thankful to God and to all the people who helped with this big project.
