Give a Bible--its a lifesaving gift AND is the best-selling book in human history!

A Bible of one’s own is a precious possession. Your gift of $10 will provide a Bible for a child, giving her the Word of God at her fingertips.

This is an especially treasured gift for children living in poverty, who don’t have many books of their own, and who long to know that they have a Creator who loves them.

This could be the most meaningful gift you give this Christmas. How many Bibles can you give today?

Breaking Ground on a Children’s Village in Uganda

As Children of the Nations continues ministering to orphaned and destitute children in Uganda, we are excited to announce that we have begun the process of establishing a permanent Children’s Village there!

Spotlight on Staff: Thomas Ojok (COTN–Uganda)

Thomas Ojok, better known as “Uncle Thomas,” lives in a Children of the Nations’ orphanage in Lira, Uganda with twenty-nine orphaned children. Thomas is there nearly all hours of the day, every day of the week. “They can come to me with any need,” he explains with a proud smile. His position as “Uncle” (a live-in houseparent) is one of great influence, and he serves as a parent and friend to the children.

Staff Spotlight – Jimmy Mao, COTN–Uganda Chief Driver

Jimmy Mao is fluent in nine different languages. He has thirteen years of civil engineering experience. He has adopted thirteen children. While impressive, these numbers only begin to tell the inspirational story of Jimmy Mao, the Chief Driver for Children of the Nations (COTN) in Lira, Uganda. Through years of civil war in his country and LRA terrorist attacks on his home and his family, Jimmy has learned that his survival and livelihood have always been in God’s hands.

Summer Medical Ministry Update

I left northern Uganda last year burdened with the knowledge that these amazing people have indeed been wounded. Not just emotionally, but physically as well. The internal trauma caused by the decades-long struggle against the Lord’s Resistance Army competed with external sores and scars. The treatment area was always lined with rows of children five or six deep, and both time and supplies were limited.

Summer Counseling Update

Last summer as I left Uganda, I prayed that God would continue healing the deep wounds of the children involved in the counseling groups. At Barlonyo camp my translator, Jane, and I led a counseling group under a tree for a few hours each day for five days. After the group I was able to see changes in the girls that I hoped would last. I especially worried about two special little girls who had little hope in their eyes.
