What I am Thankful For....

I am thankful for God and Jesus, Why you may ask, because God asked Jesus to die on the Cross and He did!!!

I am thankful for my Mom and Dad, Why you may ask, because they care for me and they are the best!!!

I am thankful for my brothers and sisters, Why you may ask, because they love me and without them I would be lonely.

I am thankful for the plants and animals, Why you may ask, Because God put them on the earth to do a special job and I love plants!

I am thankful for God making me, Why, because I could help babies have a home.

I am thankful for Thanksgiving, Why, to share what I am thankful about!!!

Susan, Edward and the New Twins

I had a friend encourage me to share more about Susan, Edward and the new twins.

Susan and Edward were born to a mentally handicapped woman, (her disability was due to malaria). Their mother is still alive, although she has a slight physical handicap as well that would be repairable with surgery. The mother was being taken advantage of in the village and that is how she gave birth to her 2 children. When the government asked her who the father was, she told them, now that mans family is wishing the children much harm. They are denying the children. The government sent them here to keep them safe from harm.

The twins, twins in the Bugandan culture are usually a huge blessing. There are special ceremonies celebrating the births. When the mother passes away due to children birth, the oppisite happens, and the culture then believes that they must be cursed. The villagers then call upon the local witch doctor to 'cleanse' the children. The children were placed here to keep them safe as well.

These are the realities here, and sometimes they become overwhelming, sometimes I get angry, sometimes I cry, and most times I just cry out to Jesus to save this world.

Please be in prayer about these things, and if someone feels led to help Susan and Edwards mother, please get in touch with HCU, as we would like to help her as well as her children.



Dear Friends and Family,

Here at HCU we have a desperate need for someone to come home school our children starting in July 2013.

If you are interested in committing to this for at least 6 months, preferably 1 year. Please email HCU.

I ask each and everyone of you to please pray about this for us.

We were blessed today with a set of twins! They are girls as of yet, unnamed! Their mother died a week after giving birth to them. Please pray for them.

They are very tiny but yet oh so sweet!!!

Please pray about becoming a sponsor for the twins, formula is expensive in Uganda, and I have a feeling once they gain some weight we will be going through formula quite quickly!

Thank you all for your prayers, we all appreciate them here at HCU!
