We opened the week by serving with the 7 Bridges Ministry. This ministry prepares meals and delivers them to areas of low/no income as well as the homeless living under bridges. The meals are just a means to end however, as their real purpose is to form relationships with those people that will lead to salvation. Our students had a great experience and truly were the hands and feet of God today in a very tangible way!

We arrived in Atlanta last night and all is well! We’re heading out to participate in a homeless ministry today as we kick things off and the students are excited. Thanks for your continued prayers for us this week!
Please pray as they sing and serve.
It may take us some time to process today’s events. The day began with a visit to a center for special needs children. It is next door to our hotel. We spoke with the occupational therapist and he gave us a tour. The children seem very well taken care of and they appear to be doing a lot with very little. Most of the children are kids with Down Syndrome and autism. They only asked for our prayers.
Next we visited African Hearts School. It is designated a model school in academics, operation and achievement scores. That is not the best part. All children are taught that God loves them and they receive daily instruction from the Bible. This school is led by our friend Lutaya whose story you may have read in an earlier post. He also took us to two boys’ homes that his ministry runs. These homes help boys from the streets straighten out their lives and in some cases reunite with their families. We were also able to go to the slums where the boys come from. One of our team members gave testimony and we got to help feed about 80 boys anywhere from eight to twenty years old.
Please pray for us as we leave to fly home in a few hours.
Our team had a great morning of worship with a local church in one of the local churches in Kampala. After experiencing some exciting and wonderful music one of our team members delivered the morning message. The Lord blessed the church with five new believers. Please pray for these new followers of Christ and also for Passion Christian Assembly. They are meeting needs in many ways.
Tomorrow our team will work with African Hearts Community Ministry serving food to some of the poorest of the poor.
