Three children in Uganda have been living on their own since their grandmother forced them out of her home for becoming Christians.
Penny, Elijah and Charity’s parents are Muslim. When it was time for Penny, the oldest, to attend school her parents couldn’t afford it. A teacher in her grandmother’s town agreed to teach the children, so they moved in with their grandmother.
Soon after their schooling started, their grandmother noticed the children talking about Jesus and sneaking away to attend Sunday school. The grandmother forced the three children, aged 12, 10 and 6, to leave her house, offering no support.
Penny cared for the other two as best she could with help from their teacher. The teacher asked for help from a VOM-supported frontline worker, who has agreed to care for them.

- Thank God for the care Penny, Elijah and Charity are receiving. Pray these precious children will grow in knowledge of the One who truly loves them.
- Ask God for provision for the frontline worker as he cares for them. Pray too for wisdom as future plans for the children are considered.
- Ask God to bring the transforming power of the Gospel to the hearts and minds of the children’s parents, grandmother and community.
