So we went to a community in Entebbe called Guda. It is a landing site. Most of the women there do business such as shops, frying snacks and fish, cooking food, fetching firewood and washing clothes. Since it is a landing site you cant leave without seeing fish or its inside somewhere. It is a given. So as a Missional Community we went and talked to the authorities to allow us access the women. They organized for us and we met the women and asked them what we could do together. You could see they needed some skills to increase their income streams. So we zeroed down on soap making, tailoring and shoe making. We organized our selves, set a date and went with a skilled soap maker who taught them how to make soap. We want to skill them, teach them how to save and teach them to work together because “If you want to go fast go alone if you want to go far go together” Larsson.
All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty Proverbs 14.23
But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth Deuteronomy 8.18.
We want them to see God in their community who has always been there but probably skipped their eyes.
You are welcome to join us on this journey.
