Joy at Kochgoma

The nations shall see your righteousness, and all the kings your glory!…and (we shall) give him (God) no rest until he establishes Jerusalem and makes it a praise in the earth.

Isaiah 62:7

It is with unimaginable joy that I tell you what I saw at the new school in Kochgoma (Gulu).

We witnessed kids exuding with confidence as they put their feet in shoes for the first time in their life. You would not help to see parents and guardians looking at their kids with hope and joy. Indeed one can observe smiles on the faces of these people on whom a smile was an unusual phenomenon. Lives are getting touched for better.

These parents were all unanimous and earnest in appreciating the generosity of the friends of the unknown to care so much in lifting the standard of living for their children. One after the other they talked while narrating how such a jungle is turning out to be a place of inspiration. They expressed gratitude for the classroom, borehole (well), and feeding of their children at school. They also are grateful for the good teachers who have helped their children and can now speak and understand English. They appreciated the backpacks and kool aid drink, uniforms and more so the shoes!!!

I can see an investment in this community which has  both precious and priceless returns.
Many thanks to all who made it possible to make these kids have a smile as well.
Hugs and Love,


The first school in the village of Ajwiya (Kochgoma, Gulu)- Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded...
