In January 2016, UORF sponsored a Kids Camp for all of our middle school and secondary school-aged children. Much of the planning and implementation was provided by the UORF University students and graduates. The program included many inspirational speakers, sports, and music. A campfire and barbeque completed the 3-day event. UORF is looking forward to holding another Kids Camp over the Easter weekend at the end of March, 2018. It is a great time of fun, fellowship, and spiritual growth for our kids.
During March, 2018, UORF will welcome teams from Hamilton District Christian High School (Hamilton, Ontario) and Illiana Christian High School (Lansing, IL). These spiritual growth trips are opportunities for students from the west to interact with the Ugandan youth, to experience another culture, and to assist UORF at our various ministries.
On November 18, UORF held a party to celebrate the University graduation of 8 of our students. There was plenty of food, speeches, music, and even a cake with roman candles! It was an opportunity to celebrate the graduate’s accomplishments, to congratulate extended families, and to encourage current University students who also attended. UORF thanks the sponsors of these students whose faithful support made this possible.
Thank you to members of Bethel Christian Reformed Church in Lansing, IL who provided 2 suitcases full of baby clothes for Wakiso Crisis Pregnancy Center. The donated baby clothes will be used to provide gift packets for each girl as she leaves with her baby. This grassroots group has been helping girls in crisis for the past 10 years and UORF is thrilled to be partnering with them to provide an alternative to illegal abortions.
