We are the Fearn Family and we lived in Mabarara, Uganda. We decided to move there from Columbus Ohio to be closer to my husband’s work. I had also wanted to work as a Midwife, so I began working with a local mission here. We have two children and a dog. This journey has been a life changing experience for us.
My original dream of going to Africa was to find a village to set up an eco-friendly birthing center to minister to the needs of women and children that would be self sustaining. I had high hopes of using already developed programs that are being used around the word, but as it turns out the universe had a different plan for our family this time around.
What we found was one family that needed us as much as we needed them. Life was hard when we arrived in Mabarara, and everyone wanted something from us. We lived behind a wall separated from the outside world with two men who showed us how the world worked in this far away place.
This is really their story more than ours, and it’s about how they’re changing their world for the better in ways we never can.
Please join us in supporting them in their work. We look forward to joining them again someday, and we hope to see a village’s dreams come true.
