Sozo Children exists to further the gospel while saving children in need. Children are in need across this world, and one by one, Sozo Children is reaching each of them. We don't presume to conquer poverty on our own, but by the grace of God, and the movement of the Church, Sozo Children is one avenue through which orphans find families.

UGANDA

Uganda is where Sozo Children is rooted and operates our very own children's homes year round. While in Uganda you will have many opportunities to serve within our homes and a local village community where we recently purchased 28 acres of land that we will soon build on and call home. Serving in Uganda opens many opportunities to create relationships with our children and staff as well as within your team.

Team Testimonials

 

"The epitome of what I experienced in Uganda can be summarized in the verse 1 Thessalonians 2:8 which says, "So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us.” In every aspect of the trip I felt like I was simply called to love God and to love people in whatever way that looked like at that moment. We got the chance to just walk through life with the people of Uganda, so whether that meant peeling potatoes with the house moms, playing games with the village kids at VBS, going door to door and talking to people about the Lord, or worshipping with the Sozo children at night, the mission was the same: love God by loving people through all of our words and actions. And because the Ugandan people had become so very dear to us, it was easy to share not only the gospel, but also our very own selves. Going to Uganda taught me what it looks to truly love because He first loved us."

-Katie C.


"Uganda is a life changing experience that shows you how humble and grateful someone can be even in an impoverished area. You can see God moving and working through the Sozo kids and the community that Sozo has touched."
-Travis A.


"I went on my first mission with Sozo for the 3-week trip and it was hands down the best three weeks of my life. God's presence was so strong all around us; the airports, the Sozo homes, the village, in the city, church, and during our morning devotions and nightly debriefs. The friendships I made were extra special to me because they were formed through the common bond of serving our great God. Even though our trip ended, I still talk to my team members daily. Every night we would tell each other where we saw God that day, and although we would only say one or two places, we all knew He was working everywhere in our lives and in those we met. Our time in Uganda taught us to love each other more and serve with a full heart, but most importantly our trip influenced us to minister those back at home that we often overlook. I absolutely cannot wait to return to Uganda with Sozo again!"
