For several years now, David and I have been passionate about the importance of community for the Christian life. Back in the US we led a community group for over 10 years, and David was the elder overseeing that ministry at our church. Now, as our missionary team has grown and changed over the past few years, we have been working to build more intimate community with our team here. We all need brothers and sisters in our lives to remind us of the gospel and to help us live out all of the "one another" commands in Scripture. I have so many thoughts on this particular topic, that I have considered writing a book about it. Maybe one day...
I have enjoyed the opportunity to meet with the the girls of GSF aged 8-10. We usually spend our time together making something like doll clothes, brownies, or Easter cards, eating snacks and talking about the gospel. I have the privilege of working with one of our Ugandan social workers to love on these girls. Below is a photo of the girls eating popcorn after some sewing. Sewing is not one of my talents, but the girls wanted to, so we worked on it together.
David gets to build relationships with the boys ages 10-12. That usually happens during a game of soccer or basketball and a brief Bible study.
Please pray for us as we invest in the lives of these kids. It is our hope that we can equip them, in order that one day they will also go and make disciples! (2 Timothy 2:2)
