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!
