In September of last year, revival started breaking out in the streets of Gulu among the young gang members. By the multitudes, they were surrendering their lives to Jesus, giving up their old ways, getting water baptized, and beginning to live brand new lives. Instead of spending their time in the streets, they wanted to spend their time in the House of Prayer. Instead of carrying around weapons, they wanted Bibles. It's been remarkable to witness and be a part of what God is doing among these young people. We declare they are DESTINY YOUTH!
If you've been connected with us for a while, you've likely heard us share about them and our work with them before. So much has happened in the last few months...we wanted to give you an update!
We've just recently moved them into temporary tents on the GIFT Home property. This is where they will live until we can raise enough money to build the GIFT Home!
For those who have been a part of this vision through prayer, support, giving, and spreading the word...WE THANK YOU!
Favor International is purchasing a compound near our Gulu, Uganda, headquarters to enable the operations and expansion of God’s Institute for Transformation (GIFT) home for women. This complex will immediately house street youth who have entrusted their lives to Jesus and to Favor’s care as family. They require housing now.
Favor International, a 501(c)3 incorporation in the United States, tracks project and grant designations for use in the mission field. Designated gifts are usually put immediately to use within 40 days of reception in the US, though our guarantee is to use them within 18 months, or return the funds to the partner. Please see the donations policy for more information.
Favor will complete projects at a pace matching financial support and reserves the right to increase project cost or duration due to unforeseen circumstances in the field, such as sudden changes of government policy, currency reevaluations, war, etc.
