In Northern Uganda an entire generation of children have grown up never knowing peace.
These children were displaced and remain un-educated because of 20 years of incessant fighting between the Lord’s Resistance Army and the Government forces.
Four Corners Ministries saw the desperation of this region 12 years ago, prayed—and saw God perfectly place Abaana’s Hope in this area. Now, on a 100-acre plot, they have been reaching out to the people in the community through farming and training, as well as running an on-site clinic, elementary school and church. They are providing clean water, affordable medical care, a safe place for children to play, and are employing more than 120 people from the local community while offering a warm-hearted environment where adults can fellowship and grow together through the love of Christ.
MAF enables Four Corners to get where God needs them, so that they can help lead this region in generational change. MAF often fly Four Corners Ministries staff to and from the project in Gulu and MAF staff are sometimes able to stay the day and visit the site with them. Last week MAF pilot Andrew Parker flew in the Haggins and Monk families to start as fresh support for the program there it was no different.
The greatest impact that Abaana’s Hope has on the community is through its church, which grows in numbers consistently as people give their lives to Christ every week.
