Good things are happening!
- Joshua & Jemima have been sponsored
- Fire equipment & $3500 toward school health/safety requirements have been provided
- Seggy was able to purchase land where he can build a home!
- SimonPeter and Florence, both orphaned/abandoned, still need sponsors. Another six children, recently orphaned, also need sponsors.
- Approximately $27,500 is still needed to meet new health/safety requirements imposed by the Ugandan Ministry of Education.
These new requirements are due to fires in nearly 30 schools in recent months (some causing student deaths). (photo at right –from a Ugandan newspaper– is of one of the fires ablaze in a prestigious school.) If the requirements are not met by Dec 31, the boarding portion of the school will be closed. If you’d like more information on this need, please let us know.
Money, Possessions & Eternity- John Wesley quoted on page 86
Do not you know that God entrusted you with that money (all above what buys necessities for your families) to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, to help the stranger, the widow, the fatherless; and indeed, as far as it will go, to relieve the wants of all mankind? How can you, how dare you, defraud your Lord, by applying it to any other purpose?
Ephesians 4:28 …let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need.
