With success of our tailoring project we are trying to build up a community of widows and young girls in Uganda. With just 7 sewing machines we have been able to begin teaching several woman how to sew shirts, skirts, pants, and uniforms. Using just brown cement papers at first and later as they advance we are using local fabrics. How did we ever end up in the business of tailoring though when we first had our sights set on a children’s school?

Our hopes have always been to help widows and the tailoring classes have allowed us a way forward in doing that. In the mean time we do hope to someday build a school for kids but that’s on hold because it’s just not God’s time yet. As we keep waiting to move forward at least we have so many good things happening. Over 20 kids in boarding schools are getting an education, around 10 ladies are studying tailoring, and we have 10 new baby piglets born.

I think we tend to see big ideas and want to make those happen immediately but often we have to slow down and wait out the storms before making those big ideas happen. The school is a big idea and an overwhelming task that needs a whole lot of prayers and key people to come together to make it happen. Often it seems like this journey is a lot of drama and unreal events that take place, from good to bad.

We have seen strangers step up to help us in unlikely ways, such as, planting a new fence and plowing our fields. Woman coming every day to learn and children studying hard at boarding schools. We’ll get there some day with faith and perseverance.
