One year ago, there was no medical center there. Today, brick by brick, the walls rise with hope.
Tonight is the big event celebrating that progress with some of the children it will benefit! There is no way to meet these kids and not fall completely in love like our family has. We’ve been enjoying two weeks with four kids and the choir director living with us. We’re all concocting ways for them to stay here longer, none of us are ready to say good-bye.
If you’re in Rhode Island, please join us tonight to celebrate this project with a special performance by The Destiny Africa Children’s Choir. See the progress on the center, meet these amazing children and be
inspired by their performance. I cannot wait to hear those drums echoing off the water in the Newport harbor. If you life afar – you can still help by making a donation.
Click here to join us tonight because we’re still building hope. It’s worth the trip over two bridges and staying out on a school night!

Last year, we rallied and raised $82,000 to build the Kampala Children’s Centre for Hope and Wellness, a medical clinic with lab, dentistry, preventive care, education, immunizations, and pharmacy. The center will serve the children and staff at The Kampala Children’s Centre in Uganda and the surrounding community. The Hope Centre website has more details.
Donations are still needed to add water and solar power. Help us get to the $17,000 goal by donating – your gifts are life-giving and more meaningful than we can even imagine! Thank you!
For the last two weeks, we’ve laughed, played, swam, eaten meals and prayed together and we’re not ready to see them go tomorrow. Thankfully, they’ll still be in the northeast through July so we’ll be hugging them again soon before they head home. You can keep up on their concert schedule on the Destiny Africa website.
See you tonight under the tents in Newport!
