June 2015 Update

Thank you to the many supporters who expressed concern in April when Deborah gave birth to triplets, two of whom sadly died. The third baby, Priscilla Precious, is healthy. At birth she weighed 1.4Kg but has now increased her weight to 1.9Kg. She and Deborah are progressing well. A photo of the baby is shown below.

The 5th annual pastor and church leader’s conference successfully took place in May at Luwero. In parallel with the conference a team of 10 volunteers from Partick Trinity Church of Scotland, Glasgow, ran a children’s programme. Approximately 300 children attended daily for Bible lessons, singing, drama and games. It is hoped to repeat the children’s club again next year.

 

Pupils returned to school on Monday 18th May. Approximately 160 children now attend the secondary school whilst the school roll for the primary school continues to be around the 600 figure. At present a volunteer teacher from Glasgow, Ann Macfarlane, has returned to Luwero for two months to help at the primary school.

 

Luwero’s new church building continues under construction. A new assembly hall for the secondary school is nearing completion and work has begun on the new dining and kitchen facility for the primary school. The site has been cleared and foundation work has begun.

 

In July a 13-strong team of volunteers from Kirkintilloch Baptist Church near Glasgow will be at Luwero. Plans are also in place for the 8th annual youth camp in August. This year’s theme is ‘Training for Reigning’ and will feature studies in Paul’s letters to Timothy. UK speakers will attend the camp.
