AUGUST 2017
Your Support Is Making A Difference!
.  
Some of the children at the
Faith Orphans Care Shelter.
That is not just a cute catch-phrase, "Your Support is Making a Difference"; it is the absolute truth.  Because of the faithful support of our monthly & yearly donors, we (together) are making a difference around the world for those who are living in Extreme Poverty.  

One story I want to share with you is that of Pastor Houston Emma Byakatonda and the Faith Orphans Care Shelter Uganda.  Pastor Houston is truly caring for the "least of these".  Pastor Houston is the founder of a young Non-denominational, independent and fast growing church called Kalwanga Christian Church in Mubende, Uganda.  He is also the founder and Director of Faith Orphans Care Uganda which is a mercy based project that has the goal of helping the orphaned and needy children of Uganda who are most affected by the death of their parents as a result of HIV/AIDS, civil wars, floods, famine, etc.
 
They strive to help these kids meet their basic needs of food, shelter, clothing, and education.  Currently there are over 360 children which they care for on a daily basis.  They seek to provide the most loving and compassionate care possible to the orphaned and impoverished children in Uganda and to show through their service that every child, regardless of their needs, deserves to experience God's love and should be treated with dignity and care.  You can learn more about their ministry on their Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/FaithfulOrphansUganda/
Through donations provided to SOTIRIA, we were able to assist them in planting maize in February.  In July they received a harvest of 3,000 kg of maize.

With this they have sold some in order to secure land for planting this month, since there are 2 growing seasons in Uganda (Feb - July and Aug - Jan), ground some into maize flour for cooking, sold some in order to buy beans, and have kept some to eat.  In order to get the next crop in the ground, they arein need of over $700.  If you would like to donate to this need, you can make a contribution directly to Pastor Houston through Western Union at:
 
First name:  Byakatonda Houston
Last name:  Emma
Country:  Uganda
 
Or you may mail a donation to:
Pastor Byakatonda Houston Emma / P.O. Box 161 / Uganda / Mubende District
 
Or you can make a tax-deductible donation through SOTIRIA.  Simply state that you want your gift to go to Pastor Houston and we will forward it on for you.

We want to thank you for being partners with us in this ministry!  The success of our ministry wouldn't be possible without the generosity of our supporters. If everyone who receives this newsletter made a $25 monthly gift, we would have our full personal support and the ministry would have its basic funding.  If everyone gave $50 per month, both us personally and the ministry would be fully funded!  Our monthly need is $9,333 and we are currently averaging $1,495.  
Will you prayerfully consider standing with us to make a difference among the world's poor in the name of Jesus by making a monthly gift of $25, $50, $100, or more
 
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR CONTINUED PRAYERS AND GENEROUS SUPPORT!
 
Have you wanted to venture into the world of Cryptocurrencies, but didn't know where to start or didn't have the funds to invest?  Well, we have the answer.
We would like to give you a "Thank You" gift equivalent to $100 USD.  
The Billion Coin (TBC) is giving away 50,000 Kringle Coins, per person, until September 30.  The current value of 50,000 coins is $1000.  It is estimated that the value will be $10 per coin in the next 2 years.  That is $10 x 50,000 (or $500,000 USD).  The purpose of TBC is to quickly gather, organize, and fund 1 Billion people with the resources needed to eradicate poverty!  We have joined with TBC and are helping to spread the word, because of their passion for the poor.
