Last Day: Deanna Wilder

Tonight is our last night serving the Lord here in Gulu Uganda.  It has been a wonderful 6 days here working with Sweet Sleep to distribute 1301 beds, nets and bibles to kids with HIV/AIDS.  This week was also a blessing because we were able to distribute an additional 568 nets to children that came out to see what we were doing.  This was a wonderful development because these children are registered with Health Alert Uganda and will now receive the ARV drugs that they need to stay healthy.  The beds and time spent will now change the lives of not only the 1301 children that now have beds but also the new 568 that will receive beds in the summer and are now sleeping safely tonight from mosquitos and malaria. I will be reflecting on the faces of all the children and their caregivers in the days, weeks, and months to come.  What a wonderful experience this journey has been!! It has been a great experience working for the Lord this week!  Please pray for the continued work here with the children and their caregivers.  The blessing is not only for the children but for us on the team for the experience of serving this week.  We are walking in a beautiful land in the will of God serving the children.
