    I often wake up in the morning with something God has put on my mind for a very specific purpose. TRP has been on my mind and in my prayers since my daughter, Jennifer visited The Recreation Project in January 2012, with Bethel University, USA. She told her father and I what she and her fellow students experienced while taking part in the various team building courses and seeing the effectiveness of TRP mission in Uganda. She believes what TRP is doing is making a lasting impact upon children, the next generation, of Uganda.

    Recently Jennifer posted a video onto Facebook of the story of Joseph Kony and the need to capture him and bring him to justice.

    See the video here: http://invisiblechildren.com/videos/37119711

    Facebook reported this video was the #1 most widely viewed video in Facebook history. There are millions of user of Facebook all around the world. That means TRP has millions of opportunities for the world see how you are helping to meet the needs of “The Invisible Children”. You can explain your desire and need to continue with the project and your financial needs to do so.

    May the Lord bless you and keep you. May His face shine upon you and give you peace.

    Hi Penny,

    Nice to meet you! Thank you for your encouraging words. The IC film certainly has brought a lot of attention to northern Uganda. I would love to talk with you more about our mission and approach to working with young people here. We are seeing a lot of positive transformation among the groups we are working with. My background is in psychotherapy, and I’ve seen typical/Western “therapy” go all wrong here. The Recreation Project is the first ropes course in the region and I believe that it’s doing more for healing the wounds of war than any other type of “treatment”. On top of that, the youth are having a blast and learning life skills such as: leadership, communication, critical thinking, and teamwork.

    We are in the process of making a very short clip about the project and are coming up with a short “wish-list” for people who would like to support us. Would you like me to send it to you? Please feel free to email me at: ben@therecreationproject.org.
