I wanted to take a minute to let you know what some of my friends have been up to in the past few months. I cannot do the story of this ministry justice, but I will try to give you an overview and encourage you to visit their website and read their blog for yourself.
Last night, I was privileged to attend a viewing of the film that my friends at 60 Feet have put together after several trips to Uganda. There is a place in Uganda that is labeled a “rehabilitation center.” This place is basically where street kids are dumped to get them out of sight and out of mind. A dear lady was driving through the city when this sign caught her eye. She drove down a long dirt road and was met by horrific conditions that no person should be subjected to. Children were chained to the walls and windows, severely malnourished, severely neglected. She was so moved by what she saw that she has committed to helping and serving these children in the name of Christ.
Some guys from Atlanta heard her story and started praying about how to help. They quickly realized that they would go to Uganda and see for themselves what they could do. The quickly realized that God was calling them to invest in these children and the work this dear lady was doing. Thus the ministry 60 Feet was born. Much has been done, but much still needs to be done. These children are helpless victims. They do not deserve to be in this place, chained to the walls, cold and afraid.
Please join me in praying for the work that God is doing through 60 Feet!
