Uganda (MNN) — Spring Break time: it’s still months away. But with many places of North America starting to feel like winter, planning for shorts-weather and sun tans is a tempting thought.

Why not consider spending Spring Break in Uganda this year?

In North America, Spring Break means heading for warmer climates, shaking off those winter blues, and having a little fun.

For most college and high school students, Spring Break means a week away from work and responsibility.

For others, spring break is a chance to make a difference, even if the window of opportunity is limited.

Orphan’s Heart is ready to help students and families make the most of Spring Break ’16.

Orphan’s Heart’s goal is to show the children of Kamonkoli the love of Jesus Christ by meeting their physical and spiritual needs, with hopes that they will come to have a personal relationship with Jesus and grow up knowing they have eternal life,” the ministry states on its Web site.

“These children are the future of Uganda. Reaching them now will make a difference for each child and for the entire nation.”

In March 2016, Orphan’s Heart and Hines Ugandan Ministries are inviting Christians from North America to join them as they build God’s Kingdom in Kamonkoli, Uganda.

As outlined here, there are a lot of ministry projects believers can help with. From Bible lessons to construction to medical, helpers in all shapes and sizes are needed.
