Team Testimonials:

“[The event that deeply affected me was] going into the village when dropping off the kids from school. We saw where they lived and how many people they fit into the tiny huts and it seemed incredible to me, yet they welcomed us and were so grateful for the things they did have.”
“[The event that deeply affected me was] on the last day there a new baby came to Noah’s Ark. Nathan was found in a sugar cane plantation malnourished and abandoned. I am thankful for Piet and Pita and their hearts to see that every baby is cared for and loved.”
“[One thing I am going to change in the next six months is] not to be wasteful and think more of others than myself.”
“[This trip has impacted me and] it has shown me the reality of poverty in Africa.”
“[This trip has impacted me and] it has reaffirmed my resolve to tell and persuade people that the need is great and the results are very evident.”
“[The experiences of this trip] have made me more conscious about how much water we use.”
“[The experiences of this trip have] made me want to be as loving and welcoming to people as I have been treated here in Uganda.”
