2020 Mission Trip Canceled

Due to unprecedented times never seen in history all boarders globally are locked down. Bob and I waited and prayed to the last minute to cancel our mission to Africa. The airline called and canceled it for us two weeks ago!! We will go 2021, if you are interested in going, pray and call us to meet.
With social distancing in place, we are unable to have our two main fund raisers in support of our travels to Africa. We have canceled our annual event for May at TapRock due to not being able to gather in larger numbers according to Oregon state guidelines. We are turning to online fundraising efforts to help the children suffering in lockdown in Africa. Please join Heart 2 Heart, Hand N Hand Intl for online fund raising on assorted platforms; Facebook at Heart 2 Heart Hand N Hand Intl, Help Africa Now, I Love Missions and Gloria MamaLove Cooper.

This is a trying moment for people of Kenya. So much RAIN… that all of us have never seen before. Digging a trench around the property to release the rain water is really something for this area. Plastering of the Boy’s dorm room building is being done to keep bricks from crumbling in all the rain.
The rains are helping the garden that the children have been working hard at in the mornings before their schoolwork.

Updates From Uganda

Sarah, Franklyn and their family have been in lock down since late March, which means children do not go to school, people lack work so NO funds can be earned for food, medicine and other essential items needed on a daily basis. 
They are doing outreach programs and feeding those children in various communities within Kagoma district.  Power has been out for days this week and it has raining unusually this season which has floods, washed away homes, killing many.
We are praying for the Ugandan government to lift the lock down, getting back to the new norm which may take years. 
As a social enterprise, the heart beat of Heart to Heart Initiative  is children and families! Covid-19 has exposed them to physical abuse, emotional negligence and mental distress.  
At the moment Heart to Heart Initiative is making a profound impact on their lives through doing online counselling, on call and one on one at the village level, providing counseling and guidance for child protection, family preservation and community transformation. 
This service helps people navigate the difficult situations Covid-19 has presented as over 120 kids and adults have been addressed the previous month. 
“Give a man a fish he will eat for a day, teach a man how to fish and he will eat for a lifetime”.
I met Richard owner of “Hope South Safari,” last year when I was investigating to go on a Safari with Papa Bob and a possible team. We chatted back and forth, became friends asking what each other does, thus building a relationship.
Richard grew up very close to the Batwa’s as a child, loosing his mother and Father to HIV he became friends with the Batwa’s building a true relationship over the last 9 years, they have come to truly trust him. The Batwa’s have been going in gleaning in other people’s gardens and rubbishy heaps eating rats for something to eat. Before the Lockdown they used to work for .50 – $1.20 a day, at the most which doesn’t feed a family of 10, thus clear malnutrition in the children and people is seen. Richard and H2H Intl desire to help the Batwa’s.
Covid-19 hit USA then Africa. This locked down the entire country. The government of Uganda is a landlocked country relying on countries around them for fuel and other items necessary for life. This caused people not to be able to work, then escalated food price hikes, food shortages and lead to insecurities among people in cities and villages alike.
My heart went out as a Richard shared photos of the Batwa’s which he lived near as he grew up keeping a relationship open to them. He would bring little food like Posha (corn meal) To make porridge to keep the stomach full from hunger. Not much food value!
I prayed to sew a seed, then pastor Safari (originally from Congo) now in Norway, chose to join me, sowed the same and Richard too. Richard was granted access by the Ugandan government and brought food across a flooded river into The 18 families that were literally starving. Now my heart is touched by the stories and Lives of the Batwa People of Kabale, Uganda. They are the outcasts and have nothing living in the equatorial forest 🌳
It is time again to send food to the Batwa’s so they do not starve, as we collect from those of you who give. The cost is about $180 per  3 months (a total of $540) so they do not starve to death during the lockdown.

Here is Batwa woman, she can not read but insists on taking her bible to the garden to work, she hopes to read and share God’s love with all those in her village of the Batwa’s.
