We had a great day visiting the children at the schools.  We started at Murole school where we were entertained, prayed for, and met our 78 sponsored children.  I was able to walk through and greet each of them checking on their health.  We identified three that we would like to get checked further.  Linda met her sponsored child Joseph, sorry no picture for the blog, it is on the big camera! He is so sweet and so shy.  The children danced for us as well.  We toured the school and were greeted by the baby school students.  I was in my glory.  They have asked for water tanks to help with their lack of water during the dry spell.  All 78 of the children followed us for the tour of the school! One picture is of Eileen showing the children a video of them singing and dancing.  One of me with the baby school students.  

Our next stop was the ACT office to drop off Dave and Pressy for more Quickbooks training.  The rest of us headed to Uganda Martyr’s school.  We were greeted by Sister Eunice and Father John. Sister Eunice toured us through her new computer lab and tailor room where we watched one of the mothers making sweaters on a large industrial weaver.  They showed us the dorms and the new kitchen.  We saw the water tanks that ACT provided and are putting to good use!  They were very thankful!  Then we were greeted in the new dining hall by all 484 students and 18 teachers.  Sister Eunice, Sister Naomi, and Sister Elizabeth were there also.  Sister Naomi and I shared a birthday today! All the students sang Happy Birthday to both of us and Sister Naomi insisted on dancing together for our birthdays.  The students provided songs, dances, a speech from one of our ACT children, and a speech from Sister Eunice.  We finished our visit with all the ACT sponsored children and again I greeted each of them to determine any medical needs.  These children looked great and no issues were noted.  The sisters invited us to lunch and fed us some very delicious food! We invited them to join us at the ACT office to have birthday cake! All three joined us!  

We finished up at the office, I enjoyed listening to Howard teach Herbert and Osbert a new song!  I took almost 150 pictures today with my big camera so look out drop box here comes the pictures soon!  We shopped for material for ourselves and ACT.  We bought 186 yards total!  Linda, Eileen, Sue, and I totally enjoyed ourselves!  Dave stood guard and gave his opinion as well (of course we didn’t always listen but he did pretty well)!  Dinner was enjoyed by all and a walk to and from the restaurant.  The full moon is beautiful here tonight!  

Keep praying for all the work to get done! Thank you for all that the ACT team does in the United States!  We are seeing how you affect lives here!!
