For some sad reason my photos won’t upload. I might need to do these blogs when I return to America because my heart desire is to share the whole effect of what God is doing here at Kirabo Seeds. The children are growing up to be such well behaved, thoughtful, curious children.
I’ll share a little summary of what is happening and write full stories when I return to the states.
- Kira loves to play with all her friends here, I barely can find her during the day
- Julie has her new outdoor kitchen built so she can run her charcoal stoves undercover and do her food prep in community on the back stoop with the other women
- the compound was filthy so I chased everyone into a supreme clean up effort yesterday and I left there feeling more settled about the environment
- I met our next door neighbor Joann, who has difficulty with the water from the road flooding her property so we cleaned the gutters in an effort to please her
- we are having regular team meetings
- Mary Beth taught a fascinating bible study for the women
- Erica is instructing everyone about how we manage and track our finances
- we lost Kenny as an employee sadly but we prayerfully bless him into his future
- I am enjoying promoting the Camerons as our new leaders and transferring the trust and attention from me to them from all the staff and children
- we are still waiting for our NGO status to be decided
- though elections are next month it is very quiet and peaceful in Uganda, no fear
- Kira lost a tooth eating sugar cane and is concerned there isn’t an African tooth fairy or that she doesn’t have a plane to get her from Texas over here, and she wonders if she is a chocolate fairy or a vanilla one…she does enjoy having so much chocolate company here and notices that I’m more lonely as a vanilla person in Uganda…this is a topic that is on her mind a lot these days…we remain open and easy going about it as she sorts it all out.
Time to have a discussion AGAIN about the ineptitude of this tooth fairy.
Thanks for all your prayers and support and love to the children in Uganda. I’ll update again in a few days and definitely write the stories when my internet blues are over.
