Eve plucked that fruit from that limb, slipped it ever so slowly into her mouth, and took that faithful bite…paradise was lost! Sin slithered into her soul and made its home within. Every generation thereafter was destined to inherited her sin nature.
The ugliness of sin poured onto the earth and tainted all beneath its touch. Injustice, pain, poverty filled its crevices and pride took center stage. All mankind was doomed, ordained, and condemned to death. All that walk upon this earth are in need of rescuing–a rescuer. And thankfully our Lord sent His Son to do just that–rescue us from death! For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16.There are approximately 11 million children–who are in need of a rescuer–who reside in the disease ridden streets of the Uganda slums not far from Kampala, Uganda. Those who reside in this dirty, polluted, dangerous part of the world are in desperate need of help (rescuer) or they will most likely perish.
This nation is poverty stricken and has almost nothing to offer these helpless, abandoned and orphaned children. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14.These little ones are alone–with no one to look out for them (provide, protect, feed, kiss, hug, or love)– fighting to stay alive and in urgent need of a rescuer.World help is building Rescue Homes for these children in Uganda and they need our help. We have an opportunity to partner with World Help and be rescuers–Jesus’ hands and feet–for these lost children in desperate need of our help. The following photo’s are of these children who World Help has rescued from the slums of Uganda.Approximately 11 million children have been abandoned or orphaned by no fault of their own. They were born into unimaginable circumstances–heartbreaking.
Just as we needed to be rescued, so do these precious children. If you are able and wish to help, please hop over to World Help and be the hands and feet of Jesus.
