Operation: Give | Jinja
This Christmas season, Calvary Chapel Mobile is partnering with the non-profit organization Friends for Hope. In response to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Friends for Hope exists to lift Uganda's most marginalized children out of poverty and into Hope through education and discipleship. As a church, we desire to come alongside this organization and provide tangible items to support these students in their education and discipleship growth. Friends for Hope is a 501c3 organization founded and run in Mobile, Alabama.
Below are several ways you can be a part of linking arms with Friends for Hope and the global body of Christ. Throughout this Christmas Season, we will gather these items and a small team from Calvary Chapel Mobile will travel to Jinja, Uganda to serve with Friends for Hope in January 2020.
• Solar-powered light: $13
This small but powerful LED light is powered for up to 8 hours by the Ugandan sunlight. Our children don’t have electricity at home, and this small gift allows students to do homework or cook a meal inside their dark huts. A teenager who received one last year was overwhelmed by the difference it made to have access to light. We hope to be able to give each family one of these lights.
• Solar-powered watch: $14
With clocks on the walls and a phone in our pocket, we often take for granted that we always know what time it is. Being on time for school is essential for success and learning. For these children in Uganda, it is difficult for them to know what time it is without electricity. Many of these children don’t have a parent at home helping them get ready for school. A solar-powered watch would help them wake up on time and arrive to school ready to learn.
• A tent for Saturday discipleship meetings: $500
Each Saturday Pastor Bob meets with the children for discipleship in the courtyard of a property rented by Friends for Hope. Right now there is no cover from the rain or sun, which can make the meeting difficult. A tent (or shelter) would provide a space for the discipleship meetings regardless of the weather. All donations made toward the tent will be pooled together to make this purchase.
• Chairs and mats for discipleship meetings $200
Straw mats and chairs would allow children a place to sit and listen to the gospel each Saturday during discipleship. All donations made toward chairs and mats will be used to purchase these items by the team in Uganda in January.
