from ULA's Board of Directors

April 2020

Dear Ugandan Lambs family,

As we pray for you all in this time of crisis and quarantine, we don’t neglect to thank our God that He is with us in it, hard as it is to understand. He’s with each of us here; He’s with our Lambs across the world and will redeem the situation somehow. Focusing on that truth is the best defense against the fear and despair that comes from focus on the media. The pandemic is real and it’s dangerous; no way do we minimize that reality. But God is bigger.

Below is the latest report from Reginah. Click on it to see that COVID-19 has impacted the routine of our Lambs and staff, but thankfully there are very few confirmed cases of the virus in the country so far. We are glad that our ULA family remains well and safe.

Sadly, however, since receiving Reginah’s report, news was received by the Sebabis of the accidental death of a former Lamb. 30-year-old Daniel Sebuliba, Sam’s nephew, was one of the first children taken in at the start of ULA, after the AIDS death of his father, Sam’s brother. Daniel was sponsored from primary school through high school to trade school, where he earned a certificate in plumbing. After graduating he was employed by a company in Qatar, where he was working at the time of his death. Not only had he established a successful career in Qatar, he took his faith there; he was actively involved in ministry and instrumental in establishing a church. He was recently engaged to be married, and in fact had planned a September trip to Uganda with his fiancé to introduce her to his family members in his country of origin. We rejoice that Daniel is in the presence of our Lord; yet we can’t help but grieve the loss. Please join us in praying for comfort for family and friends. Click on the link below Reginah’s report to see pictures of him on the job in Qatar.

Again, we remind you that you are in our prayers as this time of physical isolation continues on. We trust that in your confinement you are drawing closer to Jesus, reassessing and evaluating what’s truly necessary and important in life, and that you are reaching out to one another through the gift of technology. Most importantly, we hope that you are praying for the world situation, our Lambs, each other, and us as ULAUSA’s board of directors.

In the grip of Jesus, our Healer,

Board of Directors, ULAUSA
