I was blessed enough to be a part of the trip that started MAMO. I was on a mission trip to Uganda in July of 2016. During this time, I was praying that God would show me a place that I would be able to serve that was completely reliant on him. It did not take long.
The first school in Uganda we went to I saw children that had normal bumps and scrapes that any child has, but a lot of the scrapes were infected and others that were suffering from Malaria and other illnesses. All of these are easily treatable with inexpensive medicine and basic wound care training.
My heart was filled with the desire to help. I know that God had led me there. Several others and myself put together a plan to deliver medical kits that were filled with bandages from the US, and medicine purchased in Uganda, and then to start training teachers to use them.
We also realized that some of the children needed to understand that washing your hands could help prevent some illnesses.
With Teachers and students truly doing the best they can, and for others and myself to realize that Uganda is not an easy place to live. We at MAMO as we take teams over to Uganda we can make a deference in the lives of these children.
God has let me return to Uganda several times and I have seen the overall change in the health of the people we serve. Serving in this manor will take you out of your comfort zone and show you many things that will humble you.
You will see just how blessed you are.
I have learned to be thankful, and to praise God every day for his provisions and blessings that he gives me and my family. Most of all I thank God for allowing me be a part of MAMO and, and to be a part of the lives of the children of Uganda.
