YOUNG MOTHERS IN GULU, NORTHERN UGANDA
A three day mission to Gulu reached out to 80 young mothers and their children. Issues of self esteem and parenting were addressed. Young mothers set goals to start talking to their children, value themselves, cope with the past and strive to become self-reliant.
1,928 young people were reached of which 154 committed their lives to the Lord and 356 committed to abstain from sex until marriage. The Colorado team encouraged young mothers, taught children and engaged in sports. It was a good experience for the team, the children and the youth reached.
