We were so excited to spend a full day at the Primary School. We handed out sponsor letters to the kids and they were so excited. Many of the sponsors sent money for their kids and the items were bought that they needed and we were able to hand them out and tell them about their sponsors. Their gratefulness and awe of their gifts moved each of us to tears. They have so little and everything they have is worn out and used up! The elements here are hard on everything, and the kids wash everything by hand and themselves everyday.
It is so incredible to witness the well, the cups, the bowls, the spoons, the sewing machine, clotheslines, and everything we have contributed over the last three years now being used. The Met’s handprint is evident and it gives the kids a tangible reminder of how much the Met loves and cares for them.
We are looking forward to The Run 4 Uganda Race on April 26th where we will raise money for God Cares School and Orphanage for an immediate need. They need more bunk beds, they have 2 kids sleeping in many twin beds so we need to help provide at least 100 new bunk beds. They also need more land for crops. Please join us at the race and bring your family and friends to meet Pastor Dongo at The Met!
We will be packing and leaving tomorrow and will be home Friday evening. Please pray for a safe return and for all to run smoothly. Our trip has been fabulous and we are so thankful for all your prayers and encouragement!We all have lots of stories to tell of the amazing things God has done on our trip.
