Uganda Update 1/9/17

Uganda Update 1/9/17

Wow what a day in Africa!

We finally received one of our missing pieces of luggage via a taxi and then boda boda delivery guy! We are still waiting on one more suitcase.

Today we visited our pigs and to our surprise the second pig gave birth to 6 piglets!! We can’t tell you how excited we are to see the initial success with this “farming” venture.

Thanks to a generous friend in Michigan, we were able to purchase a bike to help with carrying water back to the pigs. Those taking care of the pigs were very happy to receive the bike for this project because the local borehole is far away and now they can carry 5 Jerry cans full of water!

Lastly we visited the home of one of our sponsored kids and talked with his mother about sending him to boarding school. We informed her on what she needed to buy for her son. We believe the only way he will see the importance of education is if his whole family is involved and bought into the process. We asked her to buy the supplies he needs so it’s more of a team effort in hopes that receiving this education can spark a brighter future.

Thank you all for your continued prayers. Donald and I are healthy and starting to get over jet lag:)

Here are a few pictures from our first days in Uganda!
