Serving the fatherless


Add 2 Rooms to Widow's Home

In April of this year we had a team that was able to come and help build a pit latrine for a member of True Vine Church that is a widow. She lives in a one-room house with 3 of her 4 children, and her granddaughter. Even though she has only a small piece of land, there is enough room on that property for us to build 2 more rooms onto the house. If she would like to use the extra rooms for her own family she can, but she would also have the option of renting them out for extra income to support her family. The cost of building the extra rooms is $2500. We would be very grateful for any financial support you could give to help support this project. If you would like to give with more than just your finances, we welcome you to come to Uganda and help with this project. We have a 10-day trip planned for you to come and give 4 days towards helping with the construction of the extra rooms for the widow and her family. There is also two days for you to explore the country of Uganda in whatever way you would like. You will be able to help make the lives of a widow and her family members a little better, while at the same time experiencing the wonderful culture and people of Uganda. Send us an email using the contact link, or email us directly at and we will get started planning your trip. Project Cost: $2500 Base Trip Cost: $1,000 Plus Airfare and Travel Documents

Ashton's Kidney

Williston, ND
Take a moment to try to remember what your hopes and dreams were when you were a child. Now picture that hope fading away. I always had dreams of playing pro baseball. We all had something we wanted to be or do. Something to strive for. This amazing boy is at a place in life where hope may be fading. Where the only dream is to live. How many times in your life do you get the opportunity to give Hope, Life and potentially help someone get to keep pursuing their dreams? This is that opportunity. Please be a part of it. Join with us to give Ashton the chance to grow up to change the world!!! You can read Ashton’s story in the link below but here is a summary for those who are in a hurry. Ashton Hanson is a 12 year old boy who is in emergency need of a kidney. Through all of your help, we’ve spread the word and a donor has been found and approved! That’s amazing! The downside is that his health has taken a turn for the worse. He is currently in MAYO but did get off the ventilator. He’ll be needing dialysis to be able to get healthy enough to go through with the transplant. Because of his age, he has to be there for dialysis. Ashton’s mother Melissa is a nurse as well as a single mom. As you can imagine, trying to be there for her son through this process for the last five years has been crippling to her finances. Anyone with kids knows that being there for them is always the first priority. She’s been doing an amazing job of that! We have a chance to breathe life into this situation through finances and hope. Please join with us to help not only Ashton to live, but to help his family not just survive but THRIVE! We love you all and can’t wait to see some magic happen. All donations are tax deductible. If you can’t support financially, we are having an auction on July 21st in Williston. Please consider donating items (no matter how big or small) as well as coming to participate in the auction. Thanks for your time and being a partner with us!

Pit Latrines

In Uganda there are many people that live without a decent place to use the bathroom. Since we have been here we have had two different teams work on Pit Latrines in order to help solve this problem for those that can’t afford it. True Vine has identified several needy people and widows who are in need of latrines. In October we would like to build two of them. The cost of a good latrine that will last for generations is about $1,000. If you are able, and would like to help us with this project, the total cost is $2,000. If we are able to raise more funds, we will build more latrines. Giving towards this project is a huge help, but even better would be for you to come to Uganda and help us build the latrines. The work is not very heavy, but the reward is great. We have a trip planned that will last 10 days out of the US. It will include 4 days of work on the latrines, and then a couple of days where you will be free to explore Uganda in whatever way you wish. Come experience this wonderful country, the welcoming people, and give some time to serve someone less fortunate than yourself. Send us an email using the contact link, or email us directly at and we will get started planning your trip. Project Cost: $2,000 Base Trip Cost: $1,000 Plus Airfare and Travel Documents
