Home for the Holidays!

Starting this school year, the Family Care Uganda School welcomed 12 students from the IK tribe.  This disadvantaged tribe is very remote and their language is quite unique. Back in 2005 and 2006, we worked with several teams to take 5 hours of audio Bible stories in their language, to the top of the mountains. They begged us to bring some of their children to our school as they just had no hope of excelling academically. The 12 Ik students who have attended our school for the last year have adjusted beautifully and are doing very well academically.

Time to Celebrate The End of Another School Term!

The end-of-term party is commonly celebrated in schools in Uganda. It means a lot to the children to celebrate this milestone with games, dancing, singing, receiving awards, and getting a feast of goat, rice and soda! We really thanked God together for keeping us safe and providing for us wonderfully through the whole term

A day full of fun and games are in order. Volleyball is as popular as football among the boys and girls, but leap frog, musical chairs and tug of ware all run a close second. These kids know how to have fun!

Bricks, Tests and the Long Trek to Ik-land

The Family Care Uganda School has kicked off the New Year with a bang!.

January is dry season in this part of the world, so the FCU team and students are working hard to make the bricks they will need for the coming year. The kilns they built last year have been fired up and staff and students (during some of the breaks) are busy baking bricks around the clock. In the meantime new houses for the kids and several bathrooms are being built from bricks made last year.

Spring Break!

I just returned from a 3 week furlough in Australia. A dear friend shocked me by sending a free ticket to visit my family and friends in Aussie! Can you imagine??! It was the most brilliant 3 weeks holiday ever! I had a real break, and wonderful time to reconnect with friends and family in Australia.
