An ARM Update
October 2012
Greetings Friends of Africa Renewal Ministries,

This month's newsletter is focused on our Child Development Program.

Child Development is our largest department at Africa Renewal Ministries representing approximately 8,200 children spread across 17 different districts in Uganda.  The program consists of 4 major intervention areas:

1. Child Development Program (CDP)
2. Early Childhood Development Program (ECDP)
3. Bethany Village Children's Home
4. Mwangaza Children's Choir
Join us as we take a look at what God is doing through the Child Development Program as we raise generations of transformational Christian leaders in Uganda.

Many Blessings,

Ps. Peter Kasirivu
Founder & CEO

The Breaking Free Mwangaza Tour
The Mwangaza Children's Choir consisting of 20 of CDP's most gifted & talent children, is headed out for it's 8th International Choir tour this upcoming January!

The tour theme this year is "Breaking Free" as the children celebrate all that God has done and continues to do in and through their lives.

The choir will be in the USA from January to June 2013, traveling through Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Oklahoma and Colorado.  

Bookings for the tour are almost complete, so make sure you don't miss out on your opportunity to have the choir visit your church!

For booking & tour information, visit the Mwangaza website or contact Neil Clements now!
Bethany Village Sustainability
Bethany Village, started in 2003, is a unique ARM project.  It is not only the home to 188 orphaned  children but it also houses a child development project, a primary school, a clinic, a campsite & a farm. 

On any given day at Bethany, you will be witness to several projects that are helping them become a more self-sustaining community.  
Over the last several months, the farming projects at Bethany have gained great returns as the pig & goat  projects, the 2 greenhouses & the 7 acres of outdoor farming projects have been able to provide meals (worth $500 every month) for the children  who call Bethany Village their home.  
We praise the Lord for the work He is doing at Bethany VIllage and for all of you who faithfully pray and support the children here!
The Early Childhood Dev. Program
ARM's Early Childhood Development Program (ECDP) cares for 150 malnurished children aged 0-2 years old. 

ARM currently has 3 ECDP centres.  These centres provide feeding, medical care, play & nurturing, Bible stories, prayer & worship opportunities, parenting education & much more to help ensure the survival of some of our most vulnerable children.  

ARM has seen the benefits to these children as they often start the program malnourished and in desperate home situations, but leave with parents who are more knowledgeable about how to feed and care for them.  Many have found sponsors during their time in this program and have been able to start their schooling when they graduate the program.  

If you would like to help, by sponsoring one of our ECDP children, click here now!
