Delivering Goats

Here are a few pics of my trip to the villages. 17 goats were delivered in total to 167 CAAF children. (Children Affected by Armed Forces) Hopefully the goats will reproduce soon and that the leaders will be honest and trustworthy in handing out the newborn goats, so that soon every child will have one.
I held the tiny little baby for just a few minutes. The product of teenage pregnancy. When we got back in the truck, my companions said, "It's too bad we couldn't give the mother some money to buy clothes for the baby". I felt horrible. I didn't even know that the child was naked under the towel.

Here are some of the young men who were probably a part of the LRA (Lord's Resistance Army). I am praying for smiles and true joy in their hearts and peace in their lives.

Here is a quick glimpse of how the crowds waited for us to arrive... sitting under trees or water tanks. I got to sit in a plastic chair.


  1. Oh Karen, you must have felt terrible hearing that when you got back into the car. The pictures of the young men really tells a story. There faces are really sad and empty looking. I hope and pray that the goats reproduce soon too :)

  2. Karen, the next time we skype, can you remind me about the baby without clothes. I need to ask you about that.
