Millions of children are being orphaned yearly across Africa having lost their parents to Malaria and AIDS.
HOME OF HOPE ORPHANAGE
A STORY OF HOPE
By Peter Field, Director of Orphanage Mission
In 2006 my wife Lisa and I went on our first mission trip to Africa. While worshiping at the Kigali Baptist Church in Rwanda an infant girl was left at the front door of the church with no note. Lisa maned this baby Hope. Over the next few years we organized fundraising events for the missionary family in Rwanda. These were called Concert for Hope 1, 2, 3, and 4. In 2011 we adopted for the third time, our second daughter and named her Hope. On 26thJune, 2017, a dear friend of mine, Olugu, introduced us to a baby boy in Uganda who was recently abandoned by his family. A note explained that there was just no way to feed him, but there was no name provided. Near death, CHAMA took him to a hospital where he is in recovery and soon destined for a CHAMA orphanage. He has been named Hope. By the grace of God and the direction of CHAMA, Lisa and I hope to fulfill our vision of establishing a new orphanage in Uganda, naming it, yes you guessed it, the “HOME OF HOPE.”

For more than 17 years Lisa and Peter have been very involved with their church, focusing mainly on youth and mission ministry. Together they have been involved with at least a dozen mission trips to places like the U.S., Haiti, D.R., Brazil and Rwanda.
Since a mission trip in 2011 the Fields have been feeling called to open an orphanage. With prayer, direction from God and assistance from CHAMA they now have been blessed with the opportunity to see their vision become reality. Lisa and Peter are honored and excited to be the Co-Directors of CHAMA's first orphanage, the "Home Of Hope" in Kampala Uganda.
Lisa and Peter pray that you would join them and CHAMA in building another small piece of Gods Great Kingdom! “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” (James 1:27)
In His Service,
