For years we have proudly supported the work of Peter and Sharon Georges, missionaries to Uganda. Every year more than two hundred Ugandan children will have enough to eat, a safe and dry place to sleep, adults who care for them, and an education they could not have hoped for otherwise because of the sacrificial love and generosity of the Georges’ ministry, St. Nicholas Uganda Children’s Fund. The fund is remarkably faithful with your dollars. Approximately ninety seven cents of every dollar you give goes directly to help children in need. Roughly three cents goes to cover program costs. Peter and Sharon take nothing from the fund for themselves. On Sunday, August 5th, Peter and Sharon will be with us to share an update on their work and raise funds for the upcoming school year. Please come and meet them, take pride in their work, and give generously for the sake of the beautiful children of Uganda and the love of Christ.

Shudder, O ye heavens! and, O earth, give ear unto these words: God descended once before for our sake He descends again today for His Mother.
