Shelter the Homeless

Last month, my friend Moses (a youth minister in Uganda) came to me with a simple request.  His teens wanted to build a home for a widow and her family who had been homeless since her husband died – living in a makeshift shelter.  This wasn’t the first time they had done this, in fact they have already completed several other homes for people in similar situations (a program they call “Shelter the Homeless”).  This time, however, they had not been able to come up with enough money to buy the supplies, so Moses was asking if I could help.

So I threw up a quick donation page via the ministry I had started, Reignite Uganda.  I was blown away by the generosity of my friends and family, and within just a couple hours we had raised enough money for them to begin to build a house for Nakamanya family.

I’m also leading a group to Uganda this August to work hands-on with teens in Masaka and I’d love for you to join us.  Click here for details.
