A Photographic Look at the Faces of Uganda :: Part 2

This is part two of a post I did last week (part 1) on the faces of Uganda. This set of images was a quick project related to the kids at African Renewal Ministries (ARM), which is the ministry group in charge of the sponsor child program we work with at Cornerstone Church. This is a pretty amazing program for the kids in Uganda and ARM coordinates the sponsorship of over 7,000 children in Uganda right now, along with being a bridge for churches and other non-profit organizations among other things. They are an amazing group, but you can really see the difference they make when you actually go over to Uganda and meet the children in the program in person and see that it really does make a difference to them.

To me, they are in the business of producing fruit… something we all should have on our to-do list as Christians, if I can say that and not make it sound like a checklist. They, and the people who work with them are producing the fruit, described in John 15, for future generations in Uganda. Something not just talked about in John but all over scripture, and to me that’s exciting. Our October mission team leaves in about a week and I can’t wait to get back to see those kids again. Just saying that feels a little weird since I’m not really one for searching out kid-friendly whatever but there is just something about the joy those kids have about life that is contagious, except perhaps when they get caught in the rain, but who likes that.

    Scott, I love these photos!!!! Love them!!!! I am a beginner photographer and i just love your style. In addition I am a sponsor of 2 of the children in Uganda through Cornerstone. Ian Kato and Rose Nakate. Please give them hugs for me. I was able to meet and spend time with Ian when he was here with the Mwangaza Choir. I fell absolutely in love with him. If you meet him while you are there I hope you will take a picture for me. Your images really are very touching to me.

  3. Scott,

    I hope you don’t mind, but I linked your Uganda pages to my facebook status. No, I’ve never been to Uganda. My daughter is a professional photographer and spent 18 months in South Africa as a missionary with YWAM and additional time in Middle East, Panama and Amsterdam. Your stories and photos are right on and capture people where they are. Thank you! God Bless

    PS. I actually got to your site by Googling “creede thanksgiving” lol
