July 2022

Dear Friends

I trust all is well with you. July has been a very busy month with children doing end of term two examination.  Subsequently the school bursar had a very big task to collect school fees which wasn’t possible from the poor community: there just is not surplus cash around. (We even sent the children, whose parents had not paid home, but then called them  back).

Second term has been one of the most difficult school terms especially as the prices of commodities has been seen rising everywhere. Schools have closed before their time due to food prices; a kg of maize flour has gone to 4,000= from 3,000 in June forcing most schools to close up since posho and beans are commonly used foods by schools. Charcoal’s price went high and we resorted to timber dusts (sawdust and shavings)but the cook never welcomed this idea because they produced a lot of smoke and little heat. Some schools have used this to reduce on the cost of charcoal but it doesn’t work at GLS.

This month I just want to focus on Tracy (photo from 2020).  Towards the end of our school term on 17-07-2022 some unknown people came in a numberless vehicle and abducted her.  Recall Tracy’s birth day is in 28/08/2018 and the devil had decided to take her life – one female teacher witnessed the incidence a long side other child. It is believed that the person in the car called Tracy by name and she responded going to towards the vehicle which started immediately. Who could this be? Police are investigating the matter but the good news is Tracy was dropped back at GLH after 5 days searching for her and some money taken by means of mobile money system. (When a child’s life is involved there are difficult decisions)

With increased commodity prices and many town hawkers being chased from the Kampala city,  violent theft has increased within the outskirts of Kampala, Kibwa inclusive.

So, please pray for peace and protection in these dangerous times

Everything, whether small or big, is a blessing when given in ‘’ love ‘’. Many thanks for being such a blessing to GLH otherwise we couldn’t meet such unexpected costs without your support.  After Tracy incidence, I decided to enter into prayers and fasting because I saw this as a direct attack from the enemy and so my apology to all my WhatsApp friends because I haven’t been communicating at all.

Blessings,

James
