Every Christmas ROWAN blesses the widows and orphans with a gift, and this year is extra special. First of all, we will be celebrating together in our newly built Hall of Hope! After 10 years, ROWAN now has a permanent building to further spread the light of the Gospel. However, when we asked the local staff about gift ideas for the community, Pastor Paul shared something quite sobering.
“Since the days of Adam and Eve, our region in Uganda has never had electricity.”
Along with 600 million Africans without light, our widows and orphans struggle as they live in darkness. The numbers are daunting, but we have a unique opportunity to take action.
What are we going to do? With your help, we are going to bring light into 345 homes. Even more incredibly, it only takes $85 to purchase and install a family-sized solar panel kit that will sustain four lights as well as small electronics.
Will you consider lighting a home this Christmas? Better yet, give the gift of light in someone’s honor this holiday season! Please fill out and return the form on the back or go online today to help us meet our December 10th deadline!
