You can try if you want to. You can tell no one. And think, "It's safe. I'm the only one who knows." And yet, you will find it impossible.
Some news is so good that keeping it quiet is out of the question. It MUST be told.
But, there are other secrets that time reveals. Hide them as long as you can, but ultimately they are uncovered.
Attempting to keep such a secret hidden for Robert and Sarah Sityo was ridiculous!
Eleven years of marriage and still no biological children.
Desire? Yes. Attempts? Yes. Prayers and prophecies? Yes. But, children? No.

Robert was awarded a full ride scholarship at Wheaton College and this week completed his studies in earning a masters degree in Intercultural Studies & Missions. It wasn't easy being away from his wife for the year and half, in the United States, that the course of study required.
There are ways around separation. Sarah had six months left on her visa and made a trip last year to be with Robert in Wheaton, Illinois. And, later, Robert also made a trip home this year for some time with Sarah.
Yesterday was a day of fruitfulness!
While Robert is not 100 years old and Sarah is not 90 years old ... time uncovered the mystery of God to do what man considers impossible. Sarah got pregnant. Not with just one baby ... BUT THREE!

Robert and Sarah gratefully said YES and the relationship began immediately. Sarah was moved to Kampala in order to be in close proximity to her doctor and hospital.

All of the babies are stable and are being monitored. Sarah is fine as she recovers from this amazing first time experience.
The mission of the NGM Maternal Advocacy Program is to provide compassion, care, and medical competency in loving pregnant women. The priorities of relationship and risk put ladies on the list.

It it was a goal to save lives ... this is the first fruit of that passion!

The anticipated expenses for the care of Sarah and the delivery of her three children exceeded expectations. The medication for the two who struggled to breath initially was very expensive.

The estimated costs for the care of the mother and her babies has reached $5,000 ... a bargain by American standards ... and this is for genuine international standard medical care.
