Trip 18, SOH Uganda, Update 1

The team is doing well, the kids are great, and projects going as planned.  This place is in need of rain, badly.  The well is producing just enough for our needs and we thank God for that.  The kids start school next week and we are enjoying having them with us.

Trip 18, SOH Uganda

Four of us, Jon, Emily, Rick, and myself are in route to the Stream of Hope Home in Byasi, Uganda.  This is Jon’s 3rd trip and first for his daughter Emily as well as for Rick.  The team will be together for two weeks then all return except I will stay an additional two weeks.  Between us we have nearly 700 pounds of stuff to bless the kids with and complete our projects.  We will arrive there Saturday afternoon.

We are bringing over 1000′ of heavy wire, 4 electrical boxes, security lights for outside, lights for inside of the new girls dorm, a fan for the kitchen, a folding aluminum ladder, plumbing valves for water collection, tools, books and toys for the kids, a laptop and 20 solar powered audio Bibles for the Teso ministry, and a keyboard for the church at SOH.  We have a lot planned and look forward to being with the kids and staff.

Pastor Paul’s prayer request is for rain.  It has not done so in months, even though it is the time for rain.  The well there I see not functioning because of the drought.
