Pushing Back the Darkness…SOH Uganda Update #4…New Boys Dorm

The 20 boys of Stream of Hope Home currently sleep in two rented rooms in the trading center along the road a little over a mile from the SOH property.  A 10 room structure with capacity for 30 boys, a caretaker family, an office, and a library is being pushed along so the boys can live with the rest of the children in safety and cut about 3 miles of walking per day from their schedule.  We plan for completion and move in by the end of November.  You can imagine how excited the boys are to have a permanent home.    The building was underway during our trip in August.  Current photos are below.
