Teaching kids about love in Uganda

Teaching Unification

When I was in Uganda, I had four schools where I used to go and share with the students about love.

I used to visit each school once a week, and within one year I had already made a big difference on those four schools. Many students benefited from my teachings because they were lacking in awareness about love and when I started teaching them how to love, most of them started to be open with their friends and their families about their own challenges.

Some of their parents started appreciating me for the big difference I made to their kids. For example, the kids became more responsible in their families.

I feel proud of the mission I did in Uganda. The seed I planted in those students, it will keep growing in them. And those students will keep planting the same seed in their friends by sharing love in their families and with their friends.

You know people keep on moving from one place to another, which means my seed of love also will keep on moving with those kids in different countries and they will share it with other people.

Here is a link to the non profit website showing more information: WUTU – World Unification Team Uganda.

Below is a letter from one of the kids in Uganda. I include the original letter and below it a typed copy to help you read it.

Hello Wilson,

Thank you for the let you sent me, because it gave me hope that life can really be interesting even though you are not done with education as long as you possess love in your heart.

Do you know that I had not realized that before? I confess that before in my life, I never beloved anyone not even myself. I hated my siblings, my dad and my family. I always got pissed, got angry with them and I could not care much about them. As long as they were alive I even prayed to God to let me be alone, far away from my family, friends and remain on my own.

That’s maybe because I always thought I had no purpose to them, I at times felt that I couldn’t fit in the family. I resented them and even thought my dad wasn’t my real one! However after your letter it made me think a lot and realize that in this world I have to possess love, love everyone not minding about the health, status or how that person looks like.

I have to love all people without discriminating. Wow!!! That’s so fun, loving is fun. I even learnt how to love my self, my family, my friends, God and everyone.

Thanks a lot for that letter bambi, because it really changed me. Really love drives this world. So I will let the world know about the advantages of loving, caring, and doing charity!!!! With God’s help, I know that I will succeed in this world, so rushing to complete my education is not better than loving.

Thanks,

Patience

Sharing the Cards for Living

True Love Card 2

One of the Cards for Living

A friend introduced me to the Cards for Living a couple of years ago. The cards contain wonderful, simple wisdom about living, and I was inspired to teach about them to various people.

At the time I was traveling around every week to teach about love, and I also shared about some of the cards in the schools and communities I visited. The people loved them a lot, and learned so much from them.

Here are some letters they wrote about what they got from the Cards for Living. (If you want to see them yourself, you can find them at cardsforliving.com) And if you want to talk about them with me, I’d love to.

Letter from Madrine:

Thank you for your good, wonderful, useful, and exciting work on sharing the cards for living. They are interesting, educative and they make me to smile, and understand what I didn’t know, and learn more. From the freedom card I learned that I have powers to change everything in my life, and my freedom will always make me happy and smile and also will give people joy.

That’s wonderful things, isn’t it?

Do you know what’s funny is these cards have wonderful and attractive designs that attract people to read them. For my friend Haifah and my sisters too, all of them told me that they are wonderful and educative.

Thank you so much. These cards will change the world. As we learn from them we also teach others and those who pick something of what we are tell them, they will also teach others and that means it will go on like that from one person to another. As people teach others the cards will educate the world.

All my love,

Madrine

Letter from Darison

2/11/13

I have gained a lot from the cards for living, I have learnt now how to love God and others, to be faithful to everyone, how to live near God, and good ways of pray. I want to see weather it’s true. Now to live near God and good ways of praying to God.

One day I prayed well as the cards teaches how to pray, I wanted to see whether it’s true. I was praying as if I was talking to someone near me. Those days I had problems. Yet even my friend Irene (who also studies the cards) had told me that if you’re praying don’t think that God is so far away from you, but feel that he is near with you. And after two days my problem was solved. 

God bless you.

Love,

Darison
