Stories and photos courtesy Sharon ReynoldsFrom the moment we started the kids community ministry at Kagamuga I had a shadow.Small and unassuming but eyes full of wonder, Miriam followed me everywhere I went. She would always just stare in utter amazement at me. I guess my white skin was quite a novelty for her and I looked so different. It took a while before she would trust me enough to come and sit with me, but eventually every time I came to visit her pre school or to the church she would find me and just stand and stare at me until I picked her up.Sometimes love is all that is needed for communication.
Miriam is not yet 3 years old, she is a tiny little person but in less than a year that I have come to spend with her she has progressed out of her shell and become a very confident and adventurous child. Her English is amazing and she speaks so politely!
Miriam has a bright smile, bright eyes and now a bright future!

Over the years, they have followed in his footsteps with great sacrifice to their potential careers, incomes, family comforts and more, all for the sake of God's kingdom.
