God of Hope, we encounter you in refugees such as Annett now living in Uganda.

16 year old Annet has been caring for her siblings, Gladys, 6, Irene, 8 and Emmanuel, 10, since the death of their parents four years ago in violence ridden South Sudan.  The ongoing violence forced Annet to take her siblings and flee south to neighboring Uganda. For more than 2 years now, Annet and her siblings have been living in Bidi Bidi, one of the world’s largest refugee settlements. Formed in 2015, Bidi Bidi is home to nearly 300,000 people—many South Sudanese who, like Annet, fled for their lives to Uganda. CRS is building houses for families like Annet’s. A place to call home means Annet can rest a little easier at night knowing her family is safeCRS is also helping people like Annet learn to farm and is giving them the tools they need to succeed. Annet was given her own plot of land to plant on so she will be able to continue providing for her siblings.

Challenge of the Week:  Give 10¢ for every house on the street you live.          

Rice Bowls are available in baskets in the Narthex and on the tables at the entrance to the church
