Your impact over the past 9 years!
Ava Weeks is a missionary to Uganda and is a dear friend of mine! She also is like family to the people of Gateway Nursery and Primary School and attends the Gateway Bible Church that is connected to the school. She has shared a powerful message with you all regarding your impact on the school!
Ava shares, "Dear Friends of His Love and SonShine,
Thank you so much for all you do to make life better for the children in Bwerenga, Uganda! Your support of the children at Gateway Nursery and Primary School is making a huge impact on the community as well as on the lives of the children.
Without your support, many of these children would be aimlessly roaming the roads of the village looking for food and for something to occupy their time. Because of you, they are in school getting an education, eating nutritious food, and learning the Word of God.
Child brides continue to be a big problem in Uganda. Girls who are not in school are often sold as child brides (girls as young as 13). When a girl is supported to get an education, her future is much more promising. You are giving these girls hope.
Gateway Nursery and Primary School is blessed with gifted, dedicated teachers who are pouring into the lives of the children they teach. Thank you for supporting them through your prayers and your financial gifts. May God richly bless your faithfulness.

When Rachel Guy was in elementary school, she was fascinated by children in African countries; her heart was particularly drawn to children who had been orphaned. At the age of twelve, the country of Uganda became the focus of Rachel’s interest and concern when a close family friend, Nancy Wellham, invited her to join her on a mission’s trip there. It was on this trip that Rachel visited Gateway Nursery and Primary school and fell in love with the people there. Four years ago, Rachel was shocked when she was invited to start a ministry for the school. With humility and gratitude, she said, “Yes” to this unlikely adventure with God.
