Magic in AfricaPosted: March 13th, 2015
Christian Illusionist Brett Myers and his wife Labrina recently returned from a week-long trip to Uganda, Africa. While there, they partnered with Watoto Child Care Ministries, an orphanage seeking to “raise the next generation of African leaders.”
“We were thrilled to be able to spend time on Suubi and Bbira villages,” Christian Illusionist Brett says. “Each village has approximately 1,000 students ranging from birth to young adult. The teenagers and elementary students we performed in front of each have incredible stories, and they are a beautiful reminder of God’s ability to restore and heal in each one of our lives.”
The people of Uganda have experienced much pain and loss in recent decades due to war, political corruption, and the AIDS epidemic. Many children are left orphaned or in families that are unable to provide for their most basic needs. Watoto’s vision is to care from these children from birth to adulthood and to empower them to lead Uganda to a brighter future.
Christian illusionist Brett used his art of illusions to illustrate the truth that God has a plan for each of the student’s lives. But Illusionists Brett and Labrina agree that they were both personally challenged by the joy and thankfulness displayed in the people they met.
“The people at Watoto taught us so much more than we could ever give to them,” Christian illusionist Brett commented. “But we were honored to be able to share our illusions and Christ’s love with the students.”
Pictures of their trip are uploaded to their media page here.

Interesting blog post. Things i would like to contribute is that personal computer memory has to be purchased in case your computer is unable to cope with anything you do with it. One can mount two random access memory boards containing 1GB each, as an example, but not certainly one of 1GB and one of 2GB. One should check the company’s documentation for the PC to be certain what type of memory is needed.
