We played, sang, and worshiped with over 400 students from four different Christian schools. We visited hardworking women in their village homes and learned about their lives. We talked a lot about spiritual poverty vs. material poverty. After six days of fun and meaningful connections, we wrapped up with a 3 day 2 night safari before heading home.
PREPARING FOR OUR TRIP:
CFC is so awesome! In just one week we collected all the volleyballs, nets, and and ENTIRE DUFFLE BAG full of LEGOS to bring to Uganda.
We are also bringing 1,000 pipe cleaners, yarn, and other fun craft supplies to do with the kids.
The focus of the trip is to visit and identify newly started Christian schools, spend time with their teachers and students, and see how CFC can best support their growth moving forward. We hope this is the first of many short term mission trips to Africa.
In addition to spending time with the students and teachers of newly identified Christian schools, we will spend two days with the beloved children of the African Children's Choir at their primary school in Entebbe. These are the very same children that were just here performing for us last September! Some of you even had the amazing opportunity to host these beautiful children in your homes. Now that they are finished touring, the children live and learn at the African Children's Choir Primary School.
Here is a picture of Cali Pomonis with the girls she hosted in September.
In addition, we will bring some dresses from CFC Women's Dress A Girl ministry. Thank you to Sandy Woods and all the women who participate in that ministry for offering some dresses to us, which will be distributed to girls in need.
