Pastors Rick and Carol Brzezicki are back from a Uganda Mission tour of seven churches in 4 regions. The tour included two, two day conference/revival meetings of which approximately 500 meals were served funded by this ministry. HFNI also distributed through the direction of Uganda's His Love Ministries about 200 feminine washable pads whereby changing the lives of women who cannot otherwise afford these kinds of products.
Overview of 2021 Mission Trip to Uganda
Thank you to everyone who supported financially and prayerfully to the 2021 mission. That was so important for the preparation and fulfillment to what needed to be done. During the next few months, HFN will provide details of where we ministered as well as the concerns that are realities in the communities that were visited. The primary focuses were to re-establish priorities with our partners in a post COVID-19 era, take part in community led conferences support churches and leaders and to provide support for women by supplying them with washable sanitary pads
Priorities going forward will still remain virtually the same. Supporting churches, medical camps, conferences and youth. Our mission is built on community led ideas and engagement.
Community Led Conferences:
This trip was a crucial trip for pastors, church leaders and congregants to be able to come together and be ministered to by someone from the outside. We were able to speak strength and hope into the lives of 700-800 people, in 7 churches in various venues through-out Uganda. We went from Kampala district to Fort Portal, Kikongo, Kibito, Bundibugyo, and Kasese. We were able to encourage, preach the Gospel and hand out sanitary pads to the ladies.
Washable Sanitary Pads:
Thanks to UpSkapes Ministries in Edmonton, we were able to distribute reusable feminine hygiene products to woman in areas where they are not able to afford them. Without these pads, women would not be able to go to work during their specific times of month and teen girls would miss school. These pads were well received by the community because it ensured the well being of woman and teens during their times of month. They now are able to go to work and not suffer the financial loss of not going and girls are now able to attend classes at school without missing crucial class time. The burden is lifted and normal life can continue.
Thank you for visiting our website and please check back in a few weeks when we will update you on more information on our mission trip to Uganda.
