Merry Christmas! Hope this season will bring you and your loved ones a lot of joy as we celebrate the birth of our lord Jesus Christ. The family of YFC-Uganda is so grateful partnership in reaching the needs of youths this whole year. Below are the thanksgiving messages from the youths you impacted this year:
Counselling Ministry - Mirembe House (Home for pregnant teenagers)
The fifty pregnant teenagers said “Mirembe House has been a source of comfort and peace for us. We have found joy, peace and better life. We have grown to love God and our babies and to make positive decisions concerning their future. Thank you so much for making a positive change in our lives”.
Two of our young mothers got married this year. It was a blessing to the ministry to see our efforts in their lives being fruitful. It is because of your support to this ministry that we are seeing young mothers choose to go for holy matrimony.
Suubi Home (Home for young mothers and their children)
The four young mothers said “Suubi Home has been a refuge for us and our children. We have been able to grow emotionally and spiritually because of your love and support”.
Starfish Sponsorship programme
Children and youth on the programme said “Thank you so much for loving us and giving us an opportunity to go to school. We love you and pray that the Lord will reward you abundantly.”
Youth reached in Schools, University and communities where we served said “Thank you so much for believing and accepting them by giving them an opportunity to make informed decisions about Christianity and their sexuality.”
Thank you so much for partnering with us in meeting the needs of youths in Uganda. You have been a blessing to the people that we have reached. We will always be grateful for your commitment to reach those in need. We are looking forward to another year of together serving the Lord.
As this season of giving, we ask you to please consider giving a special gift to the ministry or tell someone about the ministry who is willing to give. We will always be grateful for your generosity.
The Board of Directors, staff and volunteers wish you a blessed Christmas season full of joy, peace, meaning and purpose.
In His Love,
