As a church, we still have a lot of work that God is sending us to accomplish. Our approach at DCF involves training for self sustenance.
Now, I am so pleased to say that the ladies of DCF Uganda have a sewing machine! It is a thing of service and beauty, a joy, a wonder!

She is ready to make some old things new, and teach other women to sew for a living.

Our vision is three, and yours makes four. God has given Emmanuel His vision as Director. He provides Pete with His vision as Chaplain. He gives Dave His vision as Advisor. We each look at this life and eternal life from different windows so we see different things. Those three visions are different than yours. … Continue reading "Clear Vision"
