Something strange and unusual that hasn’t happened before is occurring at Kirabo Seeds. My husband and Darren are in Uganda working without “Mama Tonya”. The staff each pulled me aside privately and inquired, “will he be ok here with out you?

It’s not a simple matter creating an effective family from seventeen unrelated children and six adults of whom only one actually has children of her own. This is something only God can do.
