A few months ago, I had the privilege of spending time in northern Uganda, leading women’s conferences in two communities, Pader and Soroti, where women are recovering from unimaginable trauma. I wrote about their hope in the midst of poverty and their true beauty which comes from their faith and joy, not their outward appearances.
These women have showed resilience, perseverance and a deep desire to make their lives better through learning simple crafts, providing income to support their families.
My friend Holly has been going to Pader, Uganda, three times a year for the past four years, and she has transformed that community through the women. Holly saw a need and responded, often not knowing how she would do it, but knowing she had to do it. I am so happy to share her story here, so you can experience, first-hand, the miracles that have happened because of one woman’s obedience to God’s call.
I left part of my heart in Pader. Click here to learn more and support The Women of Pader Uganda. I know you will love and respect these women, and their desire to be independent and raise their children and often, children who’ve lost their mother’s to brutality and disease.
