Missionaries Say Farewell to Wando Babies’ Home

Until next time dear friends!

Bitter sweet was today at the Babies’ Home.

Our Mamas, Aunties, and all 20 kiddos sadly had to say goodbye to their new friends, JOY and GRACE, two international missionaries who traveled all the way from South Korea to serve the needs of the Njeru community in Uganda.

The two girls, both students studying at Korean University Council for Social Service, initiated Volunteer Days at the Babies’ Home last month.

Twice a week Joy and Grace have been bringing their own lesson plans, teaching the kids how to play musical instruments, and playing games in the courtyard!

It’s been wonderful at the home having Joy and Grace live out their calling with us.

The children have really enjoyed learning about another culture AND engaging in fun learning activities over their holiday break from primary school.

Today our dear friends from Korea came to say their final goodbyes.  It was a mixture of emotions, but mostly filled joy and gratitude.

AND…they came bearing gifts!

Joy and Grace blessed the children one last time by bringing toys, sports equipment, and dolls for the little ones to play with.  They even brought new toothbrushes for the kids!

Even though they said their goodbyes, Joy and Grace have plans to come back.  They’re already talking of making a trip to Uganda this coming August when summer break for the university starts.

Back in Korea they plan on sharing with their peers what the needs of the community in Uganda are AND what their experience of serving was like. 

Their MISSION:  To bring back more volunteers desiring to make an impact.

The Wando Team looks forward to that day when Joy and Grace come back to the home, bearing even more fruit from the education and hands-on social work they are developing in.

Till next time dear friends!

About the Author:

In 2007, Elizabeth experienced a jarring shift going from serving self to serving others. She found her calling and started seeking opportunities to connect with different Non-Profit organizations that help their communities both locally and abroad. She got involved with local outreach as a mentor helping youth build self-confidence and find a more fulfilling life through service. She then traveled to Haiti on a mission to cultivate relationships with people experiencing extreme poverty and align herself with the organizations doing something to help. Her most valuable lesson learned was that relationships can and should always be Win/Win. Finding common ground and mutually beneficial opportunities is where she finds the real magic. In 2014 Elizabeth learned the story of Michelle Huo, founder of 501c3 organizations Urban Connection and Wando International. She saw that Michelle’s work was different in the way that it actually empowered others to shift the course of their lives. This resonated so deeply with Elizabeth that she joined Michelle in 2015 to help her achieve her vision. Elizabeth is now working to help students in third world countries like Uganda learn the skills that businesses and Non-Profit organizations around the world want and need. In demand skills like driving traffic, raising awareness, and converting leads. By strategically partnering these students with SMB and Non-Profit organizations, they become empowered to lift themselves out of poverty while organizations benefit from increased revenue generation. If you're interested in growing your SMB or Non-Profit organization while making a difference in the lives of others, call Elizabeth Lozano directly at (888) 926-3688 Ext. #703
