Merry Christmas Africa Update

  Christmas and Holiday greetings to you all! I praise God that I will be able to celebrate Christmas with my USA family and friends but I am missing my African family.  I was able to see and talk with them all via the internet.  Praise God for that. They are all doing well. There are about 25 people living at the house during the school break and so it is a real happy challenge, but it is good to have all the children home for the holidays. Due to the Ebola outbreak in western Uganda the schools had to be closed early this year.  The nursery graduation (Speech Day) had to be down sized, but we were ale to do the cap and gown ceremony and all the students were recognized for their achievements during the year. Hopefully we will be able to start the new year term on time and not be hindered by Covid-19 or Ebola. This does give us some extra time to get the school organized for next year.  We are hoping to finish the nursery building but we are still in need of funding to finish the roof

Ugandan Update and Introduction Photos

 Good morning from Uganda, The introduction is over and the wedding of Pastor Tiondi is next week, Saturday October 1st.  Enter his bride and exit the missionary, but not because of the bride. We have been working with the NGO  Bureau for over a year and a half.  It has been back and forth.  They tell us they have everything and the certificate will be printed only to go to pick it up and have them tell us we need more certifications.  Because we have not gotten the NGO renewed I can't get my letter of recommendation.  I was given until Oct 24th to satisfy and there is no time to finish the work, so without a working VISA I need to go home or face charges and fines. I bought  a one way ticket and I will be home Oct 14th.  I hope to be able to return but that is in God's hands.  The rest and refreshment will be good and it  allow me to spend time with my mom and take care of some paperwork here that is easier done in person.  There are a lot of changes in the ministry this year

Africa Update July 2022

  Greetings from Uganda,   I hope and Pray that all is well with all of you.  As I watch the news it seems like things couldn't get worse.  The Church of America is under attack like never before and our prayers are with you.  It hasn't hit here yet but who knows after the next election. I still haven't gotten my work visa due to hassels with the NGO board.  I want to get it soon so there is no change in my status.  There have been rumors about cracking down on missionaries here and what they can do.  Pray for me as I pray for you. It has been a crazy year with a lot of challenges and changes. If you have been following me on Facebook you know I have had my challenges with my health.  It started with a mind case of malaria and just as I am getting over that I was hit with a massive sinus infection that lasted over 2 weeks, and in the midst of that I severely sprained my ankle.  Things were starting to get back to normal and I was hit with malaria again.  This was a severe c

Masindi Conference

 Masindi  is in Western Uganda.  It is a beautiful farming area and we are working in the villages training church leaders and members in evangelism and the study of the Word of God.

School building from beginning until now

 We have come along way from the way from a bushy  empty lot, to a kitchen and the new Nursery rooms.  We hope to have this finished by the end of the year.  Then we will start on the old Primary rooms and make them permanent in brick and mortar. This is part of out 5 year plan,  We will make our plans but God will direct our paths.  This will be done as the Lord wills.  We feel a little frustrated as building supplies keep increasing in price, but we know that God is able and all things are done in His time and in His way. We will praise Him for all that is done. Our second term will begin May 9th.  Pray that we have teachers and students and the Lord is glorified in all that is done.  We are praying for 200+ students.
