How the Youngest Can Make a Difference

Today we went to Zirobwe (a village) for the second time!

First, I helped at the vision clinic and took notes. I kept taking notes and it was hard but Tori helped me.

I also helped get glasses to my dad so he could give them out. There were a lot of people today- twice as much as the day before.

I went to the courtyard to take a break.

I met a kid and he wanted to play catch with a tennis ball. After that, he found a broken soccer ball and we played soccer for a while. I also met a kid named Saturday and he liked to touch my hair because it’s soft. I started making funny faces and other kids started gathering around.

Saturday could whistle with his hands and sounded like a bird!

All the kids waved “Bye!” as we rode the bus out. Before bed I shared my cookies with Mark and then got ready to sleep.

I enjoyed the day!

Live in Light Ministries shines the light of God by sharing the gospel and partnering with local organizations in developing countries to help children, families, and communities overcome the long term impacts of poverty, inequality and lack of education.

Live in Light Ministries partners with trusted, local organizations in East Africa to shine the light of God by helping children, families and communities overcome spiritual, educational, physical and social impacts of poverty. We have been doing missions in East Africa since 2010 and are blessed to be able to share our experience and knowledge about the region and the amazing people who live there. It is our hope that anyone who is inspired will take the step to follow God’s call to go on mission in Uganda or Rwanda.

We believe that mission trips should build long term relationships with a small number of communities. Our mission teams facilitate long term impact in the lives of children and families in our partner communities by annually sponsoring dental, vision and sanitation and health clinics, supporting local churches in impoverished areas, providing education and skills training programs for orphans, vulnerable children and widows, establishing ministries for economic growth, participating in sports ministry outreach programs, facilitating access to clean water and regularly visiting a children’s hospital.  Learn more about Live in Light Ministries here.
