Eddie“So you are the director of AIM,” Eddie said to me as we got acquainted at Heidi’s apartment. “Whatever your mission is doing here in Uganda, you must keep doing it. It has changed my life. Ever since I began doing this Biblical Counseling study here in this apartment on Sunday nights, my whole perspective on life has changed. I’m studying media communications at University and now my passion and desire has become to produce a Christ Glorifying Media.”

Sports galaWhoever welcomes a little child in my name welcomes me.  The children with special needs in Africa are often neglected and despised, but on Saturday there was a sports gala event in Kampala for these uniquely created and talented kids!  Julie and Linda welcomed the little ones who arrived on mothers’ backs, on bodas (motorcycle taxi) and in matatus (taxi vans).  We assisted the parents, some of whom had started their journey at sunrise, carrying their bags or children up the steps!  The excitement of those coming was amazing, and the parents persistently patient and strong!

See that you do not look down on these little ones.  After an initial march/stroll/roll to raise the awareness for this special Sports Gala group, the fun began!  I wish you could have seen the pride on the father’s face as he lifted his son to his shoulder after he had spun the hula hoop on and on!  Or heard the cheering for the wheelchair participant in the sprint who was limited by only having strength in one arm!  Or listened to the mom with the three month old who had come to just be with others who understood her joy in this “special child.”

Linda and JulieYour Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.  Julie and others are doing ministry with these so that they and their parents will be part of the Kingdom of God!  Her blog:  outcastsofafrica.aimsites.org.

This Friday, Julie and Linda will transport a Short Term team of missionaries to a remote location in Karamojong region to share the love of Jesus in Bible clubs for these special children there who are overlooked by the community, and unfortunately too often, also the church!   Pray for this outreach!

BIg visionIn a small Karamojong village called Kongoli, there is a local lady with a large vision!  This “foundation” to assist the disabled people in the region is simply a compassionate ministry of local individuals who see the need and do what they can to assist the deaf, the blind, the disabled!  The title of the organization is huge, the resources are small.  But God is great, and His resources do not fail!   Pray with us for the AIM team of young people who will be assisting in this ministry Big visionby providing a week of special activities and care for the children with disabilities in this region beginning on the 22nd of July.

JordanJordan and I walked across the dusty ground and ascended the tiled steps of the stately Eastern Equatoria State Parliament Building. It was Monday morning in Torit, South Sudan. Part of Jordan’s ministry is meeting for prayer and encouragement with Pastor Tobiolo whose gifted bent for effective leadership has thrust him into the office of Chief Whip of the Parliament house. “Today,” he reported, “we will debate the allocation of road Cheif Whipimprovements for each county.” A lot of days and many kilometers of rough road travel have kept Tobiolo away from this office in recent weeks pursuing peace and reconciliation of the rebel activity in the remote areas of the state.

“Why do the nations conspire and the people plot in vain?” Jordan read from Psalms 2, concluding with “Blessed are all who take refuge in him.”

We prayed for and with Rev. Tobiolo, chief whip. Today is the second anniversary of South Sudan’s independence. The Phil and Rev. Tobiolooverall political mood of Torit seems to be traces of optimism amid volumes of disappointment in the selfish rule often displayed by government officials. If only there were more people like Rev. Tobiolos…
