Studying in India
Blessy lives in India and is now 18 years old. When she was 5 years old, both parents died of Aids. Since that time she has lived in the children's home of Abraham Kuchipudi in Tenali. Blessy has been sponsored for years through Project Held. She always did her best at school and got good grades. Her dream is to study medicine. We received the fantastic news that she was hired for this study, she is so happy with this! 
Blessy left, Sirisha right.
Besides Blessy, there is this girl Sirisha, who has also been living in the children's home for years. She has been accepted for the study  as a police officer. It is so fantastic  to see that children who had no future prospects are now doing so well and are heading towards a bright future. Thanks to you as a sponsor!
Wedding bells  in Mozambique
One of our sponsor children, Irene from Machava from Iris Ministries, is now 19 years old. When she was 4 years old, both parents died and she was left alone. Fortunately, she was taken care of in the children's home and she found a warm home here. In the meantime she has grown into a beautiful young lady. She is a worship leader and has a friend who is a missionary. They were married last September, they had a wonderful day. How beautiful is that!
Mission trip Uganda and Kenya
Next week Project Held is going with a team of 15 people to Uganda and Kenya. Just like last year, we will visit the children's home of Iris Ministries and have a great time with the children. After this we continue with the team to Kamuli where we will work together with the foundation Words of Faith to support the evangelization campaign. The team will, among other things, go into the surrounding villages with a sound car to tell people that a campaign will take place. After the 4-day campaign we will go to Kenya where we will visit various children's homes, including a home where teenage mothers are taken care of. We will surprise the teenage mothers with a day of shopping, where they can all pick out a new outfit and shoes. We look forward enormously to this journey in which we want to distribute as much as possible and be a blessing.
Travel report from a sponsor
On October 10th in 2018, my dream came true! With a wonderful team I boarded the plane, and traveled to Uganda to meet our sponsor children. It was great to meet these precious ones, hold them, tell them what a special place they have in our family (even though we live far from eachother), see where and how they live, their "brothers and sisters" and the "moms" who take care of them . A time to remember! I went to Uganda with a mission: handing out love! And I am sure I succeeded, but I never expected Uganda to bring me so much more than that.

We started our journey in Luwero where I met our sponsor children. Then we went on to the north of Uganda where foundation Words of Faith organized a large campaign. A place where we could experience so much from God! The generosity and gratitude with which people who have nothing give. The joy and hope that they (got to know) through Jesus despite all circumstances. God is so good!

The period after the trip was difficult for me. My health has been deteriorating for a while and early December 2018 I was diagnosed with burnout. A dark time in which God, my family, but also the memories of the wonderful journey  became my / our points of light: Hope to hold on to.
At the beginning of this year, God began to speak about the calling He has placed on my life: Caring for each other and bringing hope to the people without hope. At that time, that was what He did for me.
When I was told that another trip would be planned to Uganda this year, I knew that I was going! God spoke directly in my heart: “Together we will bring hope again. If I can take care of finances, can I also take care of a healthy body ?! ”For the first time in months I could look to the future again. In recent months I have been able to find beautiful steps towards a healthy balance in life. The memories of the Ugandan people who ALWAYS have time for each other in the back of my mind.

October 18th is the day! With a new team and a renewed Kim:), we will go to Uganda again. And I will be able to hold all those beautiful pearls again. How grateful I am to God. He's so GOOD!
