ugandan pool table {amazing}


Is this fabulous or what?!  Ingenuity. Creativity. Genius.  

This pool table was made by two men from a village in Uganda, about 40km from the Hope Child Care Program.  HCCP is home and school to over 400 children who are either orphans or come from extreme poverty.  Some of the children in our (Forgotten Children Worldwide) Child Sponsorship program are from HCCP, and I visited HCCP when I was in Uganda.

The director and founder, Fred, is an amazing man of God with a heart and compassion for orphans that would soften anyone, not to mention the fact he was miraculously healed by God after a vehicle crash that had him in a hospital in Kampala, comatose, with no hope of surviving!! That story is amazing, and I have very close friends who were eye witnesses.  God is good. All the time!

The next time I think I'm "bored", I will remember this pool table.
