Heart Pumping

“The heart is a muscle. It requires exercise. It needs to thump hard regularly to build itself up again.”

This from a cardiologist. Does your heart need a good exercise? Does it need to go thumping hard? Here are few things coming in from the clinics we support that might help exercise that heart of yours.

From Tanzania Christian Clinic
“Besides being refreshed by the lovely weather, we have felt even more renewal through the coming of Jo Jo Elliot, Harding grad (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) and Vanderbilt RN straight from the CV Surgery ICU. Reviving us with her gentle ways, up-to-date knowledge and skills, and spiritual perspective, Jo Jo is fun to be around. She will be working at TCC for several months; how thankful we are that the Lord sent her to us!

In addition, along with Mary we are finding joy in “the Mighty One who has done great things for us” (Luke 1: 49). Just this morning Danny received the long-awaited and prayed-for news that the local government officials will provide our NGO, Tanzania Christian Services, a prime piece of property on which to build a Christian Secondary School in Monduli! Enjoying great road frontage, this piece of land also has electricity and water hook-ups nearby. Though we do not yet have the agreement in writing, the Monduli District Commissioner has given verbal approval and construction will begin as soon as documents are in hand. Our unending thanks go out to each of you who have earnestly prayed for God to bring this decision to fruition. What a mighty God we serve!”

From Village of Hope Uganda

“I will not leave you as orphans. I will come to you.”  –John 14:18

It’s hard to look into the eyes of a child, who has no shoes, torn clothes and a bloated belly, without it grabbing your heart. In 2006, during a brief time spent in Northern Uganda, that grab turned into action.

We took action when we built our first village and moved 200 orphan children living in horrific conditions to a brand new home. Philippians 4:19 says, “And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” The Village of Hope Uganda is a living testimony to the richness of Paul’s words in Philippians 4:19 which says, “And my God will supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” because the Lord has abundantly provided. Now we are taking action again by opening Bobi Village, our second community of homes for orphan children. On February 2, 2014, 96 more children will be taken to a community where they will be loved on by the village moms, given medical care, educated at the village school, and fed nourishment to both the body and soul.

I cannot say thank you enough for the many people who have supported Bobi Village. Because of your efforts, Bobi has received the funds needed for full sustainability. One person didn’t make this happen. Sure, God spoke to my heart back in 2006 to “do something” but without the support, help, prayers, donations from people all across this country, that child would still be living with no shoes, torn clothes, a bloated belly, and NO HOPE for his future.

Thank YOU for moving from compassion to ACTION!

Join us in celebrating the Grand Opening of the Bobi Village on February 2, 2014! You may not be able to fly all the way to Uganda, but you can celebrate right where you are!

Love and Blessings,

Cindy Cunningham”
