Fortunately, a man with a vision of hope for these children established "Acres of Hope, Uganda".

God’s answer was to plan a revival. The idea was quickly accepted by the church committee.

Praise and glory to God, 2016 was a great year at Acres of Hope, thanks to the generosity of so many of you.

Two pod houses were converted to hostels which allowed Acres of Hope to accommodate nearly 70 children rather than 40. The agriculture and livestock programs grew exponentially. Several teams visited Acres of Hope throughout the year. Pastor Geoffrey had an extended tour of the United States where he enjoyed sharing meals and visiting with many friends and supporters.
