Greetings from Uganda!
Happy holidays from Hope Speaks! We are so grateful for your partnership and support of our daily work, which brings us to countless clinics and homes in Uganda each year. We are privileged to visit communities in need and encouraged to know people like you, around the world, are lifting us in prayer. This year has been one of pruning, sowing deep roots, and honing in on the vision and mission of Hope Speaks.
Our vision is to transform communities where people of all abilities are celebrated and empowered to thrive. Each day, we are fortunate to speak hope into the lives of the families we support, unlocking their potential to live life to the fullest. Our work is helping to strengthen these communities, fostering a place where people accept others who may be differently abled than themselves.
We’ve accomplished so much in a short time, but there’s still so much to be done! Millions of children in our country still don’t have access to the therapy and services that they need to live out their full potential like Bridget. Many of these children are still hidden away from society, locked up in their homes, treated like animals, abused, and even killed.
At Hope Speaks, we are blessed to have a team on the ground, working to inspire every aspect of the family unit. On any given day, they prove counseling, disciple families, free children from hiding, empower caregivers, mentor therapists, and provide speech therapy to clinics in need of support. And through your support and ongoing prayers, we had the privilege of loving and serving 690 families this year!
As you read this newsletter, please know that we’re immensely grateful for your generosity. We pray that God will continue to bless you as you serve Him in the places where He’s called you.
Love, Ben & Kari David
