I read a story today about a little boy who almost died of AIDS and all of the complications it causes.
He was brought back from the brink of death by a missionary who gave both him and his father medicine and the gospel.
For over a year, I have been a sponsor of Amazima Ministries, which was founded by Katie Davis.
You may know her from her blog, Kisses from Katie, and her book by the same name.
Each month I learn about a child in the sponsorship program. A part of me travels to Uganda each month and it’s cool to see how God takes my small part to positively affect the lives of countless children.
One day I want to travel to Uganda for missions. Ever since I first heard of Katie’s work, I’ve wanted to go there myself.
The gospel is changing the lives of Uganda’s children, which make up a majority of the population due to wars and AIDS.
Imagine how different of a place Uganda will be as these children grow in the knowledge of the Lord and take their place as leaders!
Missions–and supporting missions–gets me fired up.
We are told to go to all the world and preach the gospel. There’s a lot of work to be done between now and when Jesus comes back!
You should check out their website (link above) and seriously consider sponsoring a child.
