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!

Giving is fun......

 Yesterday afternoon, we had our Amecet Christmas party with the staff. We had drawn names and we all prepared a gift for some one. It was fun to see everybody come with their nice, wrapped gifts! 
 One by one we gave our gift to the person we had drawn and there was a lot of hugging, laughter and applause! There were all nice gifts, shoes, shirts and even alive chickens!!! Have you ever got a live chicken as a Christmas gift??? I got, yesterday!!
 We had a nice meal, we ordered catering, so nobody had to cook or do dishes!! Thank you Figurant, we enjoyed it very much!!!
 Also the boys enjoyed it! The two at the left are the twins, Patrick and Noah. Their mother was hit by teargas in Soroti town and is treated in Kampala (read the blog of November 19) Then we have again Patrick he is doing very well, he was found in Soroti town, sitting at the road side at night (blog of September 3) And at the right is Matthew, he is only a few days with us. he is malnourished, HIV+, very weak and not (yet) so happy....
On Saturday, we suddenly discovered a big bee hive in one of our trees at Amecet. It was high and they didn't bother us, but we were planning to remove it, as if they had heard it, because Sunday morning they were all gone.... Amazing....

Then there was another celebration yesterday!! Michel went home, walking on both of his legs!!!!!
Michel came into Amecet in the beginning of August (read the blog of August 11) he had a leg which was broken for 2 years and had developed into osteomyelitis. He was operated and has been walking on crutches, with big pins into his leg. Every thing went well and the pins were removed on November 17. Today he can walk without his crutches and is declared healthy!!!! He was happy to go home for Christmas!
Half of our staff team has gone home for Christmas today, they will be back next week, then the other half of the team is going for new year! I pray they all have a refreshing time with their friends and family! At the moment we don't have many children in Amecet, several of them went home, healthy!!
