This August it was a great privilege to travel to teach at leaders conferences in Rwanda and Uganda. Serving Emmanuel Rucyaba once more, we taught on “leadership character” and had much fun both in Kigali and in Kyenjojo, in western Uganda.
It was also a joy to visit clinics, a school and a hospital that we have played a small part in helping…
The work is going well, with many excellent projects and some 140 churches in 6 nations. I love our partnership with these dear friends!
Allow me to introduce Mama Ketrah. With the help of some mentoring and a micro loan she has improved her small shop in Kampala, Uganda – and developed a delicious line – “Mama Ketrah’s peanut butter”
This is Tsusabe. He used to produce furniture as almost a sole trader but with help, and much hard work, he has opened a timber yard, increasing his profits by selling to other furniture makers and also cutting out a long drive to the timber yard.
By exporting HOPE we are enabling friends, like Tsuabe and Mama Ketrah, to not only make a living, but also to produce increased employment opportunities for others.
