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!

Yesterday we gathered with the staff in Amecet Home to thank God for this opportunity of renovation. We walked through the rooms asking God to bless all those children who would come and sleep in the beds, all the staff who would work there and all the people who gave and came to help us with this project. We don't want to take it for granted, we are so thankful for all what had been done !!!!!

Today was the big moving day.... We have been bringing things over in the days before, and then sometimes you need them again. Like yesterday, i got a phone call from the hospital if we could take a baby in, because the mother had just passed away.. All the intake forms were already gone to Amecet, so I had to get them first, before I drove to the hospital to pick the baby. But today we were able to bring everything back from Amun home to Amecet home. It is only two plots along the road, but still it was a lot of work... On the picture above, Elias and Emmanuel brought 4 baby beds and some minutes later the aunties came walking with the babies, after feeding we could lay them in their beds again, only in a different room...
Calvin brought one of them, just carrying, it didn't fit on the car anymore.....
 The babies were just sleeping on further in their new home, Auntie Barbara is changing a baby.
 This is the girls room, at the moment we have only two bigger girls.
 And that is the boys room! We have at the moment five bigger boys, You can see Jackson there, he tries to hang out with the big boys at times... We got all those beautiful sheets as a gift, Thank you Hannah, it looks really smart!!
And the kitchen is already the place to gather......
 We did do a lot, but the office needs still a lot of work.... we asked the Internet provider to come to change it all back to Amecet Home, but we haven't seen them yet...maybe tomorrow???
And then this room.... we have use it now to bring everything in, which we don't know yet where to put... We are waiting for the carpenter to make an old cupboard fitting in the hall way, so we can store all the puzzles and games and creative things in. We still have work to do... But we had a great day and everybody helped and worked hard, so we will be finishing soon.

It feel really good to be back in Amecet!!
