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!

The Amun week is almost starting......

 Yes you read it well, it reads Amun week 2016...and it is 2017...... We have the Amun week every year in the December, but because of the moving back to Amecet, after the renovation, we could not make it in 2016. It is still school holidays, so the Amun week 2016 will be hold in January 2017!!
We have been meeting together with some of the YWAM Soroti staff en today we had our last meeting.... I can't say that we are ready for it yet... but almost!!
In the office is the pile with Amun T shirts waiting. Our theme for the week is from Isaiah 43:2, where God says that He is with us. we will get a group of 45 children coming, the children have all been in Amecet in the past and they are all HIV+. This year we invited a new group to be part of this event. During the last years we have been graduated several of our older youth and when we looked through our list of children, we saw that there is a whole new group getting ready for this  Amun week. Children who are now old enough to receive and understand the teaching, children who were in Amecet as babies or toddlers, but are now 8 or 9 years old and they also need to get more understanding about their status. So it will be an interested week, I think....
I am looking forward seeing them back and we are all in for a great week!!!
All the children will be sleeping in Amun home, a tent will be put up in the garden, for the meetings. One thing where I am also happy with is that we have now three of our older youth, who graduated from the Amun week, are in the Amun staff to help disciple the younger children, They want to be a example to them and to encourage them in many ways. It is not easy to be HIV+ and many of them are orphans, but He is with them!!

PS. the operation of baby Esther was successful, we need to see her gain her strength back....
