Dear friends receive christian greetings from Christian Efforts Against Poverty Uganda in Jesus name.We thank the Lord so much for how far He has brought us and we are sure that God will continue taking care of us, our beneficiaries and more especially also our sponsors in every step that we shall make in modelling our children into the kind of people God wants then to be in future.
God has been faithful, is faithful and will forever be. We are very glad to have such a program that is helping those in need, I am aware we cannot be able to take in everyone but I am sure transforming these will help alot. Iam also happy to let you know that we are enjoying our partnership with you. As our mission is restoring hope for the needy by giving them the basic needs of life. We have for sure done the best that we can afford
Education wise, we have 23 children who are registered CEAPU beneficiaries. Of these, 12 are sponsored. This means that the remaining 11 children are still seeking sponsors. The good news is that since our focus is mainly on evangelizing with these children and taking them to school, they have all been put into school using the funds from the donors that we so far have. And they are progressing well.
The data above shows us that we have a total of 23 children
Of the 23, 12 have gotten sponsors. We thank God for that.
Of the 23, 8 are males and 15 are females.
Spiritually, every time we have the children meet, we always have them memorize a verse, sing some christian songs, teach them new songs, and tell them every thing is because of the love of God.We are teaching them and discipling them to ensure that when they grow to the confession age, they should be able to confess Christ as their Lord and savior. Also we hope that every child who reaches a time when he/she is able to read the Bible, we shall be able to make available to them with Bibles. We, so far, have three.
Physically, we teach our children health, have them do exercises, play games in groups, teach them sanitation and its importance in their homes, and above all we try as much as possible to provide medical treatment to our children.
Socially, we teach these children the importance of having friends. Those of them who have sponsors are already aware that their sponsors are their friends and some of them also have friends among themselves.This means that when they grow up, they will be able to live with others in a healthy manner.
All the 23 beneficiaries have had their school fees paid since the time of their registration and we hope to continue paying for them because of the commitment our donors have in supporting our ministry.
One of the parents who had left his home and gone to Kampala for a long time because he was unable to provide for the family… when he heard that a sponsor had come on board to support his family, he came back home. We Praise the Lord for that.
Two of our beneficiaries, Faith and Devota, were sick but received treatment and now they are well and attending school.
All of the children have always received basic needs and scholastic materials as need arises. Thumbs up to our donors.
We first of all want to thank God so much for enabling this project to come up. We also thank Yleana Newton and Dan for sponsoring Munyantwari Alex who pioneered this program.
We also want to thank our sponsors so much because if it was not for them this program would still just be an idea. Now we see its implementation.
We thank our friends and those of you who have always prayed for us.
We thank our staff for their commitment to serve both God and these children.
We also thank the Government of Uganda for accrediting CEAPU and allowing us to operate legally in the country.
Three of our beneficiaries Devota, Racheal,and Joan received Christmas gifts last year. They bought clothes and food for their families and they all were very happy.
Pray that we all shall be encouraged in the Lord to carry on this ministry to the young children.
Pray also for the children without sponsors where as we may pay their fees, give them some basic needs. It still lowers their self-esteem to be in the program without being sponsored.
Pray that there shall be security in the country so that we carry out our operations in a secure environment.
Pray for us also for God to open a way so that we shall have offices that are permanent where people can feel secure to visit us.
Pray for one of our missionary families who are here in Uganda to work with us, that God will provide for them their needs of life and also good health.
Pray for one of our sponsors who will also be visiting the family she is supporting this year.
Pray that God blesses our sponsors with enough resources, money and good health so that they are able to keep supporting their children.
Finally pray for all these young children that they will come to the knowledge of Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior.
You may not have time to pray for all these but at least have time to pray for one of these, that their desired future will bring glory to God.
We love and pray for you.
