Rainy Day Dress Up

So, yesterday afternoon it poured down rain. That meant me and the kids were stuck inside. What to do to break the boredom?
Recently, someone sent some new shirts for Yosam and sort of recently someone bought both kiddos some new clothes. So, we decided the kids should dress up in their new clothes and we take some photos. That way we can email the pictures to those that gave us the new clothes as well as put them on here for all of you to see how much they've grown! Notice we've got lots of missing teeth!

Who's Number One In Class First Term 2011

Our kids worked really hard this term. They compete with each other to be the top in the class, resulting in some really awesome grades from the majority of the class. Here's the results of First Term 2011. The following were each number one in his/her class:

Zalika- K5B

Miracle- K5A

Maria- K4B (tied with Eric)

Eric- K4B (tied with Maria)

Jonathan- K4A

Mary Nantaba- K3B

Bridgette- K3A

We're really proud of these kids. They've worked hard. They are all overcomers. Remember these children all come from a local slum. They live in homes that are single rooms. Some made of mud or cardboard. None with running water. Most of our children receive their only meals at school so sleep hungry at night. Please celebrate with us their accomplishment and continue praying with them as the years go by!

Future Site of Vision of Destiny International School

See the future site of Vision of Destiny International School!

Vision of Destiny purchased 7 acres of land about a 30-40 minute drive from the city center, depending on traffic. We wanted to stay nearby so that the children receiving ARVs wouldn't have difficulty in continuing to access the medical care they need.

Yeah, I know, it just looks like bush! And right now it is......... However, keep following us over the next few years as it turns from bush to one of a handful of international schools in Uganda.

Thanks to all of you who have been supporting us so far along our journey. You are greatly appreciated and we couldn't have made it this far without you!

Sponsorship, Sponsorship

We've got some good news and some bad news.....

Good news: Janet now has a sponsor! This means one less child waiting!

Bad news: Wind Mary and numerous others are still waiting.

This year has been really slow on child sponsorship. Since the year's beginning, only 3 new sponsors. It can be discouraging at times. However, we know that these children belong to God and He can make a way where we see there to be no way.

Please join us in prayer and in spreading the word in the need for more child sponsorships.
