HCU is sending out sponsorship updates every few months, as the Ugandan term ends, Uganda has 3 terms therefore after each term, we scan their report card, take a new picture, and write you about their progress. IF you are not receiving these emails, then its one of 2 things, your email that we use is the email you use for paypal, or, its going to bulk mail or spam mail. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE email us at,

If for some reason we have posted that your sponsored child needs a new sponsor, it is because we have received a notice from paypal that your payment was not processed. Please keep in mind, we rely on these sponsorships to keep these children in school as there is no way we could afford to keep each child in school/therapy without your help. When we receive these emails we immediately ask for a new sponsor so that the child can continue in school, receive wonderful medical care or specialized care as in the case of physical therapy or counseling.

We do NOT send any of our children to Government school, they all attend schools that specialized in the needs of each child.

Each and every penny we receive for these children goes to the child. we do not take out any overhead, for rent, office expenses, or running costs. (Paypal does take a small percentage, and our bank does charge us $1.50 each time we withdraw in ATM fees)

Please feel free to visit your child if you are ever in Uganda.

We still have children available at

I am sorry if someone has not understood something. but once again we ask you all to please feel free to email us at any time. We are humans and can overlook something, and do not mind accountability in any form as long as it is pleasing to the Lord.

HCU is run completely upon Faith...

Jesus tell us. ....if you have faith as a mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, Move from here up to there, and it shall move, and nothing shall be impossible to you. Matthew 17:20.

I am not a good blogger, I do not share my emotions easily. I am not able to tell you how hard life can be here. I do not share the rewards of serving God well.

God planted a seed years ago for this ministry. This journey started when we made the decision to adopt from Uganda 8 years ago. Since that seed, God has brought us far. We have been able to move into country, receive all necessary licenses in record time. (Less than 6 months) This is and was all God!!! I know of people that have worked on theirs for years.

This all being said, I feel as though my faith is wavering. We have been in country for 2 1/2 years.

My children and I are still living life with just visits from our husband and father. We trusted God that He would allow Randy to move into country full time after 2 years. This has not happened. We trusted God that HCU could become fully funded within this time period. This has not happened. We trusted God to bring us more long term volunteers. Pastors, teacher, Office, and this has not happened.

We have also found that people that pledged to support us, have not, most of them not even once. Friends, Family, Church etc. I have learned that 90% of people that say you are their friend, are not. I have found that people only sacrifice when they can afford to, i have found that we all need Jesus, all of us, in a HUGE way. I realized within the last 2 weeks that I was harboring these things and allowing them to create bitterness.

Get rid of all bitterness, rage, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you. Ephesians, 4:31-32

Look after each other so that none of you fails to receive the grace of God. Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many. Hebrews 12:15

I was allowing the root of bitterness, I have been praying to let these things go and forgive. I am human, my feelings hurt, and i stumble and fall, ALOT! But I know God is faithful, and this is the promise I am holding on to!!!!

We are still trusting Him, and know that we are doing what He wants us to, but life is hard, so very hard without your husband and father there with you, I find myself not laughing, because when i laugh, I feel guilty that my husband is not here to share it with me, I find myself questioning God, and He was oh so very clear on what He wanted Randy and I to do, but I am so tired. At times I feel like a child having a temper tantrum. Telling God that I am finished with what He has asked, I find myself questioning Him. But in my heart I KNOW that He has a plan and as long as we are obedient our rewards are in Heaven not on this Earth.

God has helped through HCU at least 50 children, through reunification, adoption, or fostering. God has helped numerous adults with health care needs, HIV Counseling, and parental education.

These are the accomplishments of God. All the Glory goes to Him! I have seen absolute miracles here in Uganda.

This all being said, we need help!!! We need the Body of Christ, rent is due November 4th, we have only have the money partially and are still needing 2,000 for 6 months of rent. After the last financial update, we have not received any funds towards this expense.

Randy is returning home Nov 14th for 2 months, this will be the longest time period he has gotten to stay with his family for 2 and a half years, please, help us make this possible, I am dreading the possibility of having to tell our children that we have to cut his time short.

We are still needing 4,000 for this cost, and we have work permits to renew as well at $1,000. We also have 2 passports that are needing to be renewed while Randy is here.

Please pray about helping HCU cover these expenses.

Randy and I have been blessed, extremely blessed, I will never deny that! He has given us strength we never knew we had, He has added 6 new children to our family that has blessed us entirely! We have seen amazing things in our children. God is so very good.

We also understand life is expensive, and know that money never seems to be enough, so we are asking for prayer warriors! Those people that will come along side of us and walk together and PRAY for HCU, our family, and most of all God's will be done!

Thank you everyone, supporters and prayer warriors, we could not work in Jesus name without each and every one of you!

Blessings to All!!!

Sarah and Goergie

A month ago, we were able to help a woman who came to the center looking for assistance with getting to Kampala for treatment. The hospital in Kampala refused to treat her for 2 reason, first she was pregnant and secondly she didn't take someone with her to help tend her in the hospital. (Hospitals here are not like western hospitals, you have to take someone with you to tend you and do your errands) Please pray for this mother!!!

Sunday we were informed that she had given birth at the main hospital here in Mityana. She wasn't due for quite sometime yet, so we knew the babies were going to need some help.

Our Social Worker went to visit her, and the mother was so sick that she begged Susan to help her til she could get better, so after gaining permission from the Probation Officer, we brought them to the center for rehab while the mother tries to get well. 

The children s umbilical cords were not cut properly, so we had to clean them up and make things right. What we found out at a later date, is that the main hospital thought they would die so they didn't make much effort with these babies!

Please, Please pray for these babies to grow strong and healthy and be a living testament to God and HIs Glory! 

Goerge is 13 inches head to heel and Sarah is 13 1/4 head to heel! The clothes they have on are preemie clothes and they are still too big!
They are very tiny but man are they fighters!!!

They are holding hands!!!
Such incredible blessings from the Father above!!!
If you are inclined to help with their care please visit

Blessings to All!!!
