  1. I’m really looking forward hearing more stories about AG (amazing grace)! I love animals and I’m thrilled the kids are able to learn to love them as God’s creatures.

    1. thanks! Musa loves kitty the most. and Christine hates kitty! We have to help her see that kitty is an orphaned baby and needs a home and love just like she did.

    1. I agree. I love my cat because of her independence and spunk. I love it when she chooses me and purrs her love out to me.

    1. Thanks for having a look. I hope you will join me as I write about visiting deep in the villages to meet the grandmothers of our children. It was life changing for me.

    1. thanks! One of our little girls hates kitty. I am going to write her a story about an orphaned cat who needed a family and a chance for a better life…just like the little girl who hates kitty… I hope it helps her feel for the animal.

    1. Thank you so much! I hope you will enjoy our stories about visiting the old grandmas deep in the villages. It was a life changing experience for me.

  2. Beautiful post, I enjoyed learning how Uganda children learn valuable lessons and skills in life. Your time there must be amazing! Thank you for sharing :-), and congrats on being Freshly Pressed!!

    1. Thanks. It is amazing to work in Uganda. The children inspire me to work hard to get them support so they can have a better life.

  3. I just love this in the same way as how I love plants and animals. Your post really caught my attention as how you’ve inspired me to write more and love these creatures more each day because I believe, maybe you too as well that they are God’s gift. I am counting your blog as an inspiration. You did a great job with this post. You showed not only a great humanitarian act to the Ugandans, but also compassion for other living creatures such as plants and animals :)

    1. Thank you so much. You make me blush. I hope you will follow more of our work with the orphaned children in Uganda. They inspire me!

    1. My pleasure thanks for having a look. Working with orphans in Uganda opens my eyes to the full extent of love. I hope you will visit our stories again.

    1. Thanks so much for having a look at our work. I welcome you to see what work we continue to do with the orphans in Uganda.

  4. Thank you for this short view into the lives of these lovely people. What a curious thing to learn about how they view cats (and pets). And yes, Americans love their pets too much at times, LOL!

    1. Yes, our fascination with animals is odd in a third world country. But sharing with children to care about animals is a universal value.

    1. I wish you best of luck finding a way to serve the children in Uganda with sports. The kids there LOVE soccer (football) and I see them playing it everywhere with home made balls of dry banana leaves.

    1. Thanks! I’m humbled to be a part of these children’s lives. It is an honor to share the stories here, and I hope you enjoy the following stories.

  5. A perfect example of ” Children Learn What they Live”. These children you speak of will forever carry the most precious gifts of love, compassion, nurture and work. They will refine it to their lives and pass it along to further generations. A piece of you where ever they go. Well done.

    1. You are so right. These children carry on a new legacy. They are released from the cage of poverty and can learn to write a new story for their children and their grandchildren. I’m so thankful to be a small part in this story. Tonya

  6. It must of been am experience to be part of something so wonderful like this.. I can only imagine what it must be like to live your life off the land and what your hands bear…beautiful!
