Riches and honor are with Him, enduring riches and righteousness." Proverbs 8:18
Life was like walking through hell after our dad passed on where we could hardly afford meals or money for education because he was the breadwinner, and everything we had to sustain our lives was taken by our relatives who had forsaken us. We moved and stayed with our grandmother who was very poor and selling local breweries, but she was the only one with open arms to receive us with our mom. We stayed in this poor lifestyle and attended some UPE (free government-funded) school where we could hardly afford even the smallest penny we were required to raise, and kids would make fun of us.
I can say that to be the man I am today from the lonely family and hopeless boy I was, that I have been able to serve and inspire many young people here is because of other people who kept on encouraging me, praying with me, and supporting me.
I can say that to be the man I am today from the lonely family and hopeless boy I was, that I have been able to serve and inspire many young people here is because of other people who kept on encouraging me, praying with me, and supporting me. I greatly understand the impact and value of reaching Christ, love, sacrifice, belief in others and faith in God.
Florence Dongo’s visit to the U.S. creates a perfect chance to get this opportunity off the ground. If you live in Southern California, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas, or the Sebring/Orlando area of Florida, we want you to get involved! Please join us this spring and invite Florence into your home to meet some new and current Buyamba friends. It's an easy, relaxing way to introduce Buyamba and share your passion with your friends and family. We will provide you with a simple booklet called “Share Buyamba” that will give your guests a quick overview as they meet Florence over coffee, dinner, or a gathering of your choice. The idea is to share the passion that is within YOU to impact these lives. You can be God’s mouthpiece to share the powerful message that we have the ability within our means to achieve Buyamba’s vision to empower a generation to impact their nation for Christ.
Contact our Buyamba office today by clicking above and emailing Melissa Carlson for more information and to schedule this special time with Florence, as she makes the trip out to the U.S. to thank those who love her children. We will fully equip you. There are limited spaces and scheduling has begun.
struggles, but God moved again on another sponsor's heart named Jackie Grant, and she investigated the opportunity to have Buruhan treated in his own country with a specialized surgeon who travels internationally from the U.S.
In 2017, Buruhan had his first successful leg surgery (pictured above) that would be the beginning of healing. Now, in January of 2018, Jackie is traveling back to Uganda again to stay by Buru's side as he will have his second surgery on his other leg by that same visiting surgeon. While the first time God had moved on the hearts of a group of donors to cover all his medical expenses, this time, a generous organization called Child Springs International is covering all of his hospital expenses. Because these sponsors followed God's lead and had a strong relationship with kids at God Cares School, God's plan was set into motion.
On behalf of the Buyamba Uganda board and office staff, we pray that you have a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!
We are always encouraged by the opportunity to serve our brothers and sisters in Uganda alongside each and every one of you. May you be blessed by this special video message from the Dongo family on behalf of God Cares School, and know that your giving hearts have made a difference.
