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.

Uganda Mission Trip 2015

Dear Friends of WorldHope Corps:
I  invite you to join us this year on a mission with Uganda in June, or support our mission there.  
Every year since 2005, I've led a service trip to Africa.  We go to communities to which we have been invited, to share in mutual ministry and joint projects; and we find that we gain so much more than what we give.  Henri Nouwen calls this "reverse mission" (See Gracias by Henri Nouwen).
This year we're returning to Uganda on June 22.  
Our ministry partners, Pastor Baaumu Moses (leader of Shalom Coffee Collective in Jinja) and Br. Julius Kasaija (leader of SARS Shalom near Hoima) invited members of WorldHope Corps and Communities of Shalom to come and see, enjoy and celebrate, the good things God is doing in Uganda in the lives of Christians, Muslim and Jews. 

Together, we will participate in Five Great Community Events:
