Christmas in Africa 2019
Our Christmas party in Uganda was an epic day of Celebration, Thanksgiving and Miracles! After days and days of rain and flooding in the area, God gave us a beautiful rainbow a day before the party to remind us of His faithfulness! There was NO RAIN during the party! Nothing but sunshine and a reminder of God’s promises!
We also witnessed hundreds of salvations, as children made decisions to follow Christ! We experienced miraculous favor at the Kenyan border with the shoes for the children being released just in time for the celebration AND heavenly joy like we’d never seen before in the 4000 children! God is so good and He does good...through us all. We saw His power and love at work in us and through us!
Our 2 Christmas parties in beautiful Kenya took place at two amazing local organizations- MCF (Mully Children’s Family and Compassionate Hands for the Disabled Foundation- saw over 1000 children receive the love and hope of Jesus! We also provided tons of fun, gifts and delicious holiday meals! These children won’t soon forget this day of celebration!
Thank you to our donors and prayer partners! Your support changed lives!!
Summer in Uganda 2019
Our 2019 Summer in Uganda was epic!
We loved our annual RURO Worship and Arts Camp where we engaged hundreds of orphans and street children, ages 2-17 years in worship, dance, art and music. We were able to expose these amazing kids to various art forms: singing, playing instruments, creative movement, painting, photography and more.
In addition to RURO hosting this week long camp, we also hosted a one day women's conference for more than 2500 widows and vulnerable women (1500 inside and another 1000 women who couldn't fit into the building. Our team made sure to minister to all 2500 women praying for them and giving each woman a small gift to say "We see you". Spoken word, dance, worship and original songs were shared around our theme of "I am Loved". Our prayer is that everyone left knowing that they are loved beyond measure by their Heavenly Father. We also graduated and celebrated 45 more women from our RURO Sisterhood Program.
Reach Up Reach Out introduced our RURO Sisterhood Program in 2017 with 50 widows living in the slums of Tororo, Uganda. As of today, we have sponsored over 200 vulnerable women. These beautiful women not only receive monthly financial support for 12 months but they are also enrolled in a yearlong business program that instructs them in English, math and skills to go on to create their own businesses. Women leave our program with hope, encouragement, sisterhood and more!
