Happy Birthday Asher!

Happy 1st Birthday Asher!!! 

Last year, I received Asher after his mom had a C-section! It was quite an experience to watch how the surgery process happens here.  I am so thankful for this wonderful mom and her little man!! Praying that he grows in the Lord and always knows his Father in heaven!!

Visit to Sisyi and Sipi Falls

Village Visit

Peeling potatoes must be pretty boring!

Gathering firewood!

Bring the firewood into the kitchen.

Nesting box in the kitchen.

Sorting rocks out of the rice.

More nesting boxes in the kitchen.

Sugar spilled on the ground!  Can't let that go to waste.

Holding baby chicks is always a favorite pastime.




Whole fish 

Kate made a friend with the neighbor girl! She was treating her as if she were a baby! So cute!

Sound Equipment Project

We want the Beyond Pamba Resource Centre to be self sustaining! We have gotten advice from local friends and they suggested that we buy a sound system. Ugandans will rent this equipment for weddings, burials, crusades, etc. The pictures below is the first time that the equipment went out on a job. It was before Christmas and this group was driving around promoting a children's party. 
It has proven to be a good investment so far.
We are in the basic stage of equipment. We would love to add tents, chairs and so much more for renting. It will come with time. We pray that God will continue to bless this ministry!

Women's Bible Study

God had been placing on my heart to start a women's Bible Study.  A couple of weeks ago, I started facilitating a study on being a servant for Christ. I really pray that it will impact the women that attend, including myself. 
We have a young women (M) that comes to the study and she is struggling with her marriage. She wants to honor God and be a respectful wife, but she is tired of being treated so poorly. One week she was asking if it was ok to attend events(Bible Studies, visiting family, etc.) without her husbands permission.  Culture is so different here that I wanted one of the Ugandan women (J) to answer her.  I was so blessed by J's response. She really encouraged M to pray for her husband.  Pray that God would transform him, and pray that he would allow her to attend.  She really encouraged her to respect her husband and win him to the Lord with her behavior.  She was so Biblical in her response and I was so thankful for women who love the Lord! 
Please join us in praying for M and her husband! Pray that they will have a godly marriage and will honor him in their respect for one another.
