Babies in Prison

I’ve missed two Mondays at the prison because I was sick with typhoid so it was good to be back with the women. The last time we were there we had brought Bibles but they hadn’t been given out so we were able to give them out. The ladies were so excited! We spent a little time helping them learn how helpful it is to know the order of the books in the Bible to be able to find scriptures quickly. Then as I was teaching some of the ladies would take turns reading the scripture. Some got Bibles in English and some in Luganda.

In June we brought Maama kits for three pregnant women in the prison. One had her baby two nights ago in the prison dormitory so it was a great blessing she had all the things needed to have a safer delivery. We are thankful for the people who enable us to get and give the kits. There are two more ladies about ready to give birth.

The lady that gave birth this weekend was in court with her baby (yes, two days after birth) when we were there so we didn’t get to see them. But Salima went back later with another Maama kit and some blankets and baby clothes and Hope kits but Praise God the mother and baby had been released!
