Phil and Linda Byler, missionaries in Sudan

I, Linda, was privileged to participate with some of our short term workers in Uganda for one day last week in SMILE, a compassionate ministry to widows and children begun by a Ugandan lady with a huge heart!

Children everywhere, and amid the chaos, there was order! I was especially impressed with the patient lines at mealtimes, the prayer before eating, and the way all ages pitched in for the cleanup!

 

 

 

 

Some children played “soccer” with a homemade ball; some gathered round for story time when books were shared in groups; some had a “horseshoe” type of game with bottle caps/stones and holes in the ground; some were constructing sand/mud houses with torn pieces of paper or rags for decoration; some enjoyed the donated, all metal slides, merry go round, and teeter toter; some  collected insects from the ground; some “dressed up” and had a “tea party” without tea or snack (just water in discarded plastics)!

Naturally there were some disagreements, so there was some pinching, some tussling, and some stone throwing by upset kids! But these kids from the street made me SMILE!
