What’s been happening?

We have slowed down in Africa because of health issues back in the USA but the local team in Uganda is still moving on with the projects we started. The 26 sponsored kids in boarding schools were visited and we saw to their medical needs. Kids in Uganda get dewormed every 3 months. It sounds strange but it’s a simple tablet that can really improve quality of life with all of the bacteria in food and water that causes stomach issues. This inexpensive tablet isn’t given regularly in the villages but at boarding school it’s a must. If you ever see sores on legs and arms that look kind of like blisters that is a sign of an infection/parasites inside the body that often can be treated with a simple deworming tablet.

Our tailoring at Sisiyi falls is in its last month of trials. Prayers are needed on if we have the manpower and ability to continue it. We have 7 students studying and 1 teacher coming 3 days a week. We started it 2 months ago for a trial period of 3 months. So far it’s very promising and we will soon have to decide if we continue a second term or not. What would cause us to not? Well, it comes down to the community involvement and interest in the project, finances, and staffing. It seems this village is more perceptive to the tailoring school but as we have learned in the past it takes time and patience to see what really can be sustainable in the villages. We have 2 sewing machines being shared amongst 7 ladies and as they begin to move to using fabric instead of cement papers we will really need to make a decision on buying more machines.

Back in the USA, I have had surgery for my cancer reoccurrence and should be starting my radiation treatments soon. It’s pretty straightforward treatment plan but in life it seems not everything goes as plans. Prayers needed for patience during this time and also guidance on what the future of Healing Eyes will look like in the coming months of 2019.  We have been blessed with people to help from Africa with our children in boarding schools and young ladies in the tailoring classes. You have to start somewhere and right now we are getting our bearings and learning patience:)
