Showing Thanks Through Stewardship

“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace:…” 1 Peter 4:10

The rainy season was tough on Ddembe House this year. Not only did the erosion caused by the heavy rains take out our driveway, a portion of the back wall, and the cattle pen, but the constant beating of the rain did quite a number on the paint jobs of the house, the office building, and the wall, too. So now that we’ve gotten our first sunny week in months, it’s a great time to start repairing and sprucing things up. Not only that, it’s a great opportunity to teach the kids some different skills—though I don’t know if paint wars technically qualify as “skills”!—as well as teaching them about stewardship. To have this place that is being used to serve so many is a great gift, and we are so tremendously thankful to have the responsibility of caring for it.

Good job, Ainsley!
