Since my last post in June, all plans to open schools have been delayed. Last week Ugandan President Museveni announced plans for limited openings in October for those students in grades that are transitions to higher levels such as the last year of Primary School and High School. Also churches can open with reduced capacity. Roughly 15 kids from Child Redeemed Mission Home (CRM) are excited to get back to school.
The Bwase Redeemed Church partnered with MSM to build a home for a family that lost the mother during childbirth. Twins were born and are doing well and about 3 months old. This family is related to one of the older CRM kids, Julius and cares for him out of school. They are doing a great job.
Most of the children from CRM are living there and receiving some tutoring and refresher lessons from the idled teachers from Promise Primary. Everyone seems happy being productive.
The children at Lord’s Servants Home in Kenya have been placed with extended family guardians and are awaiting school to reopen in January. Most colleges and Universities have opened in September and a number of our sponsored children are college students. Sharon is starting a Business degree program, Fidelis in Engineering, and Bridget in Teaching, while Ken and Mika are continuing in Nursing and IT respectively. Brian just finished truck driving school and is employed. MSM is blessed to help these kids reach their potential in a fulfilling career.
President Museveni also announced that the Airport will open to international tourists (not mission workers yet). I am hoping we can make a mission trip in January.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support. The Covid shutdowns are very difficult for the general Ugandans and Kenyans. Many are struggling to survive without work and services.
