Uganda Part 4 - The Pictures

Sorry it's taken so long for this one, facebook has almost ruined the art of Photo Blogging.

So here we go, in choronological order I suppose...


This one really speaks for itself. The second time I've been south of the Equator.
Me and 10 year old Joel. One of the proper little brothers of the trip... he is awesome!
The school at the beginning of the trip, the far left of the building is not finished yet, that was our job. The matrons quarters.
The rainbow we made on holiday club day 2. We put up a lot of the things the children had made and it made our meeting space much brighter.This is St John's about 30 mins from Rukungiri. It was really good to see the church and join in. There was an auction after, Joe brought a goat, Stephan brought a chircken!

This is the sewing room in the Mother's Union. They practice on cement bags because it's a lot less expensive than material.
The Life Skills Clinc, where parents with disabled children come and learn how to cope, talk to other parents and teach their children basic life skills. It's part of the 5 Finger project.
The pre-primary school, finished! well, our bit was finished. The roof has been put on now. I'm still massively impressed with what the builders and the team.
This is Benjamin, my builder friend who remembered who I was and asked for me by name. We had some very good relationships on site. The Ugandan people are lovely.
A huge Elephant!
All my lovely young people at a salt lake on the dawn safari!

Great photos.
I did a save-as on the one of the cement-bag dresses to use as my desktop background for today.
Thanks.

Hi again Karen,

Thought you might get a kick out of this:

It's about 6:30 a.m. over here and my wife woke up a few minutes ago.

She saw your sewing room photo on my computer desktop and asked about it.

We discussed the blend of earth-tones in the bricks, the cream-colored walls, the teaching charts, the quilted curtains, and the bag dresses.

Ginny said, "They give a new meaning to the term sackcloth".

Aww, lovely Ginny. I'm glad my photo's have sparked international interest.

Hi yet again, Karen.

Thank you so much for your comment on divine guidance.

My books is still months away from publication, but I intend to include your input in one of the chapters.

Thanks for your help.

John
