All I want for Christmas is Meat and Soda

By Rainbow Mike, Dec 17 2016 03:23AM

In the heart of Karamoja, there is not an evergreen tree to be found, no snow, no stockings, and no wreaths. Actually, if you could imagine a place any farther from the cozy warmth of a white christmas, it is Karamoja. BUT, amidst it all, there is the hope of Christ that translates into every culture and Shalom likes to celebrate by having a meal of all-you-can-eat meat, greens, and sodas, like Coke. Shalom also tries to buy new clothes for all the youth staying at Shalom home so that they will head into the new year with pride and the truth that they are being taken care of.

We hope here at Shalom Ministries that you will praise God with us and be open to the love and care that he makes available to all. Thank you for caring about the youth of Shalom and we pray that you will experience the same kind of care in your own life in this season.
