Good afternoon, Church Family. We encourage you to read all of this post. Please share this post with as many people as possible. We are sharing news regarding Elioenai Children Hope Orphanage Uganda. The Fundraising Crusade has begun! Our first fundraiser is on February 20, 2022, at New Life Fellowship Church in Belton, Texas. We are having an Auction style bake sale after the church service. More information on the crowd funding page and further fundraisers will be announced in the next few days. We are setting several goals. $25k, $50k, $75k, and $100k.
As we have said in the past, the orphanage is currently renting the property they live on. The building is in great danger of collapsing and the children sleep on dirt floors covered by blankets. We attached some photos to give you an idea of their living conditions. All proceeds (minus advertising costs) will be used to buy land, build a home, and buy beds and furniture for all the children. We also attached photos that show the housing and furnishing plans for the new orphanage. Furthermore, the funds will be used to feed and clothe the children. This will also allow the orphanage to do many ministries in the surrounding villages. We know that nothing is too big for our God.
All the riches belong to Him. As it says in Philippians 4:19
"And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus."
We are planting a seed in God's Kingdom and God is calling us to be good stewards of our finances. What better way to be a good steward than to invest into a ministry that is making disciples of these children; effectively building God's kingdom. Mugambe Eric is the orphanage director. Brother Mugambe and the Orphanage work tirelessly to build God's kingdom by supporting the community around them. A community that experiences extreme hardships as a way of life.
We have formed a committee and are looking for motivated volunteers to help in this endeavor. Weather it is spreading the word, helping at events, donating, or just offering prayer through fasting or other means. We have attached pictures of some of the orphans and village families that are offering thanks for the current donations.
For the sake of being transparent, two individuals have borrowed $5000 ($1000 for advertising $4000 for supplies) to help kick off the fundraising and get much needed supplies to the orphans and vulnerable families. This of course will have to be paid back first, but we know that God will provide more abundantly.
Let us make this Crusade an act of worship to our Jehovah Jireh and show this world that our God is not dead! God will provide for our brothers and sisters in Uganda. Amen!
