Missionary Work in Uganda

Several years ago my husband came across a blog called “A Place Called Simplicity.”  He was just amazed by the posts and often told me about them.  Eventually I began reading the blog for myself from time to time.  It is available at:

The blog is written by a woman who is married to a pastor.  They really take seriously the New Testament command to care for orphans.  They have several biological children but have also adopted a large number of children.  The couple is white, and their adopted children come from a variety of backgrounds.  They are now a multiracial, multiethnic family.  Their family members have origins around the globe.  The blogger is open that she and her husband are at retirement age, but their children range from adults to a baby and everywhere in between.

The blogger and her husband have a real passion for the people of Uganda.  They have spent a lot of time there.  They particularly work with vulnerable children—some live on the streets and some are in orphanages.  My husband and I have been so moved by the experiences they share as they work with these children.

I encourage you to take a read of the blog.  The things memorialized in the blog are quite extraordinary.

Because of their love for orphans around the world, the blogger and her family have started a new ministry called “International Voice of the Orphan.”  The ministry’s website is at:  http://www.internationalvoiceoftheorphan.com/.

James 1:27

Religion that God the Father accepts as pure and without fault is this: caring for orphans or widows who need help, and keeping yourself free from the world's evil influence.
