The difference that kindness made in the boy's life was startling. ECM is collecting sunglasses for distribution at Christmas in the northern Ugandan areas where they're working. Does a pair of sunglasses equate the Gospel? It's the first step. Rouster urges people not to underestimate the value. "It's a very significant gift for them. It's just a way of showing them the love of Jesus, and then at the same time, we will be telling them about Jesus and sharing with the children the reason why He came into the world." The Every Child Ministries Christmas team will deliver hope and love along with the sunglasses so that these children will understand their value in God's sight. ECM also hopes to develop sponsorship programs for these Albino children. With a sponsorship, says Rouster, "This will help us to make contact with them and their families. They can go to school and also hear the Gospel regularly." For example, ECM's sponsored children in the Gayaza project receive educational assistance like school fees, school supplies and uniforms, and they participate in a Saturday meeting. The Saturday meeting includes Bible teaching, discussion of practical life matters, a health check, a vitamin and a nutritious meal. What it translates to is a future of hope for a child who would otherwise grow up being ostracized and devalued. If you'd like to help, ECM is looking for those who can donate new or gently-used sunglasses and for those who can get their church or other group to collect sunglasses for the project.
