Earlier this month we visited a small village that we visit often, as the villagers have many problems, The LC (Local Chairman. each village has one, his job is to know the villagers and their problems) approached us and asked us if we would please look at this woman's baby. We said of course we would be glad to help. Upon the LC taking us to the house, we found that the woman he was wanting us to visit, is a woman we had been attempting to help in the past. She was fond of alcohol and was neglecting one of her older grandchildren. We were very surprised to find that she had a 7 month old as we had never seen him before. The baby was very malnourished and the day before she had fallen on him while carrying him. The baby came back to HCU with us and straight to the hospital where he spent a week.
One of the days I went to visit Carlos in the hospital, I was worried about many things, although scripture kept swirling in my head that God had everything covered, all my worries were just the flesh, as I was sitting in the hospital, praying over Carlos, my mind would also include other worries, one of our care takers, MaMa Julius, said mom, see this Grandmother, I said yes, whats the problem, she proceeded to tell me this horrific story about what had happened to the grandchild. My worries melted away and God reminded me again that He is in control. This Grandmother had traveled far to bring her grandchild to the hospital so I invited her to HCU for lunch. She was so very grateful and it was nice to share the Love of Jesus with this Grandmother and Grandchild.
Carlos is slowly improving, please keep him in your prayers, we are also working with the mother, and helping her conquer her problems with alcohol. She is in need of prayers as well. She is very receptive to healing! Praise God.
This is Carlo's mother with Dr. Dan.
Dr. Dan came for a visit and we visited an elderly man that was burned with boiling water by a mentally insane woman.
Dan returned to his job in Rakai so we are checking on him and attending him. Please pray for his healing.
This last week we received a phone call from the police about a baby whose mother was trying to seel him to the witchdoctor for child sacrifice. He is a beautiful healthy baby boy, whose name is Job.
Please pray for this mother and that we find a suitable, safe relative for Job.
This week we implemented a Saturday Program for the neighborhood children. We had dance, Bible Stories and fellowship with the children. It was wonderful, and we thank God is was so blessed for the first Saturday.
Now we have some amazing honoring news!!! The District Police gave HCU an award for being the top NGO in Mityana District that works with Police!!!! What an amazing honor, this is all thanks to our God, our prayer warriors, our donors and all of HCU employees!!!
