This month we would like to say THANK YOU.
First, to our Lord and Savior, who continues to go before us in this ministry. His love for these kids is so great. It is such a privilege to get to love them, serve them and point them to Him.
Second, we would like to thank each sponsor, golfer, volunteer, donor, and prayer warrior for your support of this year’s 8th Annual Arrows + Hope Golf Tournament. What an incredible day it was! Thank you for saying YES and for making a difference in the lives of children who truly need it. The pictures below are a small glimpse of some of the children and young adults whose stories you are part of!
Paul and Ernest both attend a school for the deaf, and can now travel to and from school in the Arrows + Hope van, which was purchased by the funds raised at last year’s golf tournament.
These children all attend a school for children with disabilities and are also transported to and from school by the van! Before the van was purchased, they were taking public transportation – which is extremely crowded, as well as unsafe.
Anthony and several other students have the opportunity to receive an Arrows + Hope scholarship to attend university! The funds raised at this year’s golf outing will provide additional scholarship opportunities to help cover the cost of university tuition.
Because of these scholarships, we now have young electricians, hairdressers, agriculture experts, nurses, medical technicians, teachers, musicians, drivers, and tailors who are equipped not only in their area of expertise, but also spiritually, to make an eternal difference in their workplaces and communities!
Every child in the Arrows + Hope program receives medical treatment when needed. Each month, we have children being treated for malaria and other illnesses. The van has helped to transport them to medical centers, and the funds raised from this year’s tournament will help provide the necessary treatment most of these children would otherwise not be able to receive.
The mission of Arrows + Hope is to point children to HOPE in Christ through discipleship and education. This year’s golf tournament funds will help us continue discipleship programs at the schools our sponsored children attend, as well as in the village on Saturdays, by covering the cost of materials, transportation, and meals for these gatherings.
Farming God’s Way is another discipleship tool which uses biblical truths to teach a way of farming that can produce a larger yield of crops in a smaller area. Funds raised at the golf tournament will help provide for the tools and seeds necessary to continue this ongoing training with the children and their families.
Arrows + Hope has been able to provide employment to eight Ugandan individuals! We are grateful for a team who works hard each day to come alongside each child and their caregiver to encourage, love, and guide them. Pictured above are Sophy, our Accountant (in red) and Deborah, our Discipleship Coordinator (in blue).
Thank you for partnering with us to point these children to HOPE in Christ. Disciples are being made, lives transformed, and communities changed because of your generosity!
