Hey everybody! James here! Thank you all so much for your prayers! We have been so so so blessed by our time here and the very beautiful people we have met! I get this giddy feeling when I think about summarizing what we’ve done already.
We had the priveledge of visiting the Naguru Reception Center. The center provides a necessary temporary home for children who are found on the streets and cannot articulate where they are from. They receive the kids from the police, or sometimes they are left at the gate.
There are 7 caretakers for about 130 kids, so the kids are quick to show affection although that seems to be a trend among all Ugandans. Once again football proves to be the quickest way for us to get to know the kids and gain instant friendships. My heart sings for joy! The kids there do not face favorable situations but they show incredible hope, the likes of which we did not expect.

Thanks again for all your prayers (mom) we could not do any of this without it.

    What a blessing for me to read what is going on there. What a blessing not only for you, but for the children you are with. I am sure they will never forget you or what you brought to their lives through our Lord. I bet you that time has gone by way to fast for each of you..hugs to you all. I pray for you all each day..come home safely.
