I know the founder of the Charity in The Video Below. He is a good man. He uses all donations honestly. He and His Family Moved to Uganda to help the Orphans. If you are looking for a Charity, please consider giving just 5 dollars or maybe even more to the Giving Circle. There are so many Orphans in Uganda.

THE AVERAGE CHRISTIAN DOES NOT KNOW ANYTHING. WHAT I HEARD WHEN I WAS A CHRISTIAN IN A FUNDAMENTALIST CHURCH PEW – FROM THE PULPIT WAS — NOTHING –LIKE THE LECTURES OF THE SEMINARIANS WHO DEDICATE THEIR LIFE TO DETERMINING WHAT WE KNOW ACTUALLY HAPPENED AND THINGS WE KNOW JUST DID NOT.
