A Plea to Help Flood Victims, from Pastor Moses of Uganda


Hello friends and Shalomers: 

Two nights ago we had heavy rains which turned to floods for six hours.  The disaster caused many people to lose their houses and gardens and their lives. Two of the people who died are a 67 year old woman and her grand daughter of 12 years.   When the water entered her home, it brought down the house and swept everything out. Their bodies were found in Lake Victoria at the source of the Nile.

In the spirit of shalom we are raising funds to help the affected families. We call upon Shalomers wherever you are to join us in this situation.Though these people were affected directly, we all are affected
 indirectly.

Pastor Baamu Moses
Director of Shalom Uganda ,Africa .

P.S.  Emergency funds for flood victims may be channeled through http://WorldHopeCorp.org  


Dear Baamu Moses,

We at Thanksgiving Coffee pray for the safety and health of those who are left to make the situation better.
I have informed Willington at Gumutindo Cooperative and Henry at the Coffee Board of Uganda of the troubles in your neighborhood.

We need a description of the situation as it is now after all the damage has been assessed. Our prayers go out to those who grieve their losses.

Dear Baamu,  my seminary, Pacific School of Religion, will be taking a love offering in Chapel in early May for your community that has suffered from flooding. I will send whatever funds are collected through Michael and WorldHope Corp. I pray you are surrounded with support through this difficult time. 

Shalom,
Michele Robbins

Yes, Pastor Moses, I have also seen the photos. I am so sorry to hear about this situation. I will join in with Dr. Christensen's love offering.  May our great and mighty God comfort and console you and your community at this very difficult time. 

Shalom,

Gaius Charles
