Trip 26 – Uganda, Update 6 Summary

I enjoy reviewing a trip, once home, and summarizing how it went compared to expectations.  It amazes me without fail how willing people are used by God to serve in a loving and tangible way.  Our goals were to…

  • Build a playground and finish the 4 room school building addition at Promise Primary.  See Update…Promise Primary opens and See Update 2
  • Make upgrades and repairs to Child Redeemed Mission Home.  See Update 1
  • Help prepare the kids to start the school year.  See Update…Back to School
  • Bring and distribute 10 bags of clothes and shoes…including soccer gear.
  • Visit the Teso ministry in Torroro, upgrade audio and video capabilities and encourage their training and evangelism efforts.
  • Interact with the community, church, schools, and families.  See Update 3

It was a successful and positive trip for all.   We use what the Holy Spirit gives each of us to serve which may include handyman skills, teaching talent, medical training, empathy for people and love for children, or just willingness to be there. (SHAMELESS PLUG…Pray about joining us on upcoming trips in August and January)

Trip 26 – Uganda…Promise Primary School expands and opens.

Last September MSM began funding a four room expansion of the classroom building at Promise Primary School serving the Nabwigulu community about 15 km from the CRM Home.  The expansion was needed to add the 6th and 7th grade classes and allow more children to register.  A fresh water well was dug and installed to serve the school in October.  During this trip a school necessity was installed….a playground! …. and rain gutters and 60 desks and 6 tables.

Promise Primary had 225 students last year and has opened the 2019 school year with 400 students registered.  Many of the additional 175 kids had not been attending school or were in poor learning situations.  The goal is to expand registration by another 50 students eventually, including families that can not pay the modest tuition as sponsorship funding is available.  The vision is to impact the community in a long term way….education.

Imagine such excitement over school…

Finished building….added rain gutters for the rainy season.

I love building playgrounds!

Desks………and water

Trip 26 – Uganda, Update 3

I love this Place!  Less than a week before returning home.  All of our planned projects at Child Redeemed Mission Home will be completed in a few days.  The grade school and upper class High School kids start school Monday and everyone is prepared.  7 new High Schoolers are being prepared to start in a week.  The playground, student and teacher desks, and building projects for Promise Primary are finished and they are ready to start school Monday.  The church is really alive and service is tomorrow.  Please pray for all that to go well in the next few days.   I’m enjoying everyone.  I love this place….. It was built on prayer over the last 5 years.  Thank you for being part of it.
