News for God’s Love Home and School                            April 2020

Dear Friends,

I asked you dear friend to pray for me as that would be the means for my receiving supernatural help during the COVID19 turmoil. God’s hand is ongoing to our children and families in Kibwa. You have shared wisdom on how to softly move forward with measures /prevention of c19 –Many of you have bothered to explain ways of protection, myself passing the word to the children and carers at GLH. The isolation continues with most transport means on hold until further communication from the President.

 Excitement at getting maize

When it was clear that there would be a lockdown we sent 14 of the children to the Farm where it would be easier to feed them though sadly some got malaria. Lockdown started with no transport on the roads, apart from Government vehicles, and there were initial problems getting food into Kampala and some prices have risen (a loaf of bread was 4000UGX after 5000-6000, posho 2,000 now 2,500).  We have brought children in from some Guardians, who were having problems getting supplies, into GLH. We have limited supplies but the food inevitably is monotonous, posho and beans each day. Children at the farm are planting some crops alongside reading the Bible and school books, story books, learning gospel songs etc. At GLH, they are reading story books, learning etc. The GLV students have never lost any of their time since they are internally locked with study things inside.  

Project praise and prayer points

  1. I am thanking God for the three who have sent supplies to my local branch to support with feeding for one month
  2.  We are working through the farm document to ensure that this project yields good results for children food and profits.
  1. Requested money for classroom block completion not yet but this could wait as all the focus is on feeding the children during this time. No news from government promise of maize corn and Beans. 
  2. Children at the Farm are doing good under a good care
  3. Our morning prayers have taken roots –praise and worship though in small numbers as one of the measure to COVID19 – Our faith in Lord Keep going up each and every morning praise his mighty name. We felt the lord speaking to us through Jeremiah2:22 for though you wash yourself with nitre, and take you much soap, yet your iniquity is marked before me, says the Lord. We felt the lord is asking for Holiness other than just washing for covid19
  4. Food lines are growing as people are left to wonder how they will get their next mealFamilies who have never needed help before are now finding themselves in an unfamiliar reality - living with food insecurity.  
  5. Long life to our generous supporters; regular fund 25pounds could feed/educate a child for a month

Blessings,

Greetings Friends  and I hope this email finds you well. I pray that your family and loved ones are safe. 

 All is well on my end and the Lord is protecting us. Our children at God’s Love Home and School in Uganda are well.    For Uganda, there are about 53 confirmed COVID-19 cases; 4 recovered and zero death at this time. We pray it doesn't get worse.

 The country is on lockdown: schools, churches, public places, and transportation systems are shutdown and our President has just extended this for a further three weeks. Originally no transport was allowed on the roads apart from government vehicles but now trucks delivering food are allowed.  Most businesses are closed and many who rely on a daily wage have no money.  The government has promised posho and beans but we have yet to have any.  It can be difficult to find food within walking distance and prices have risen.  I am so grateful to friends who are keeping us going.  Without your help we would be in real difficulty.

 Let me tell you of some adjustments we have made.  I have sent 14 of the children, who normally live in GLH, to our farm where they can be more easily fed. 10 of our children with guardians have moved into GLH to ease the problems faced by guardians, many have several of their own children and have lost income.  There remain a further 14 with guardians who can better manage the present situation.  To support our guardians and their families we have bought some maize (corn) flour, beans, rice, salt, kerosene, and soap  supporting around a further 30 children. (Most of the children attend our school at God’s Love School). 

Thank you again for all you have done, especially at this time.  We will try and help others as resources become available. If you wish to help more children have food during this crisis, please contact me at james.mukiibi@yahoo.com  Mobile:  +256788963985  (Uganda)    to discuss the ways you could send us or mark at markshawhamilton@hotmail.com  Mobile ; phone number 01633 615339 (UK)

 Blessings,

James

 God’s Love Home, Kampala                                                                                                                        02-02-2020      

 May I wish you a ''Blessed New Year'' and thankyou for your continued interest,  prayer and financial support for GLH.  Kevin and Valma Joined me in Uganda to get on with the roof work of the school Block .  We  have been looking after orphans for 12 years now at considerable cost.  Maybe this is a good time to take stock. The bare bones.  At present there are 36 children of primary age or less (15 in the orphanage, GLH, and 21 supported with Guardians; this is an interesting model as there is a move away from big orphanages but GLH  retains the advantages of both). There are a further 16 supported in Further Education. They have come into  our  care for a variety of reasons; AIDS orphans, found abandoned by police, referred by Council, etc and one orphaned by Ebola. Over the years some 30 have left our  immediate care, many now in employment.  One young man got a distinction in Diploma of Law, is qualified to go to the University but lacks fees. GLH still cannot get official funders and just does not have the resources to fund university but this is a very sad case. 

GLH  shares premises with the Junior Classes of GLS. There is separate accommodation in bunks for boys and girls. Matron looks after them and manages to feed them well on a tight budget. Kwashiakor is no longer an issue and illness much reduced using regularly inspected mosquito nets.  Matron is a key member of the team but is wondering how much longer she can continue looking after the children as she is not well and not getting younger. You may remember one of the children was injured in a traffic accident; she is still affected with recurring headaches.  There should be official funds available to support orphans etc but we  have been unable to access them. Uganda, sadly, scored badly on an international corruption scale, an issue that affects so many aspects.

GLS.   The top 4 Classes are on the lower campus in the new building. The aim of GLS is twofold; to provide a good Christ centered education and, from the fees from surplus places, generate  funds for GLH.  We  had our  first class that sat the Government P7 leaving exams and all achieved a grade 1 or 2. This is a superb achievement. However it is a poor neighbourhood and “ you cannot expect dry cows to give good milk” so fees are too low to cover costs. They need to develop a model where the fees are high for those who can afford (but grants and bursaries are available for the genuinely unable). The school needs to be self funding or a sponsor found; GLS cannot continue to be a drain on the organisation . There are unfilled spaces . GLH has pupils in the younger classes and the older ones but there are several years with no GLH in them

GLS2.  The very success of the P7 leaving class has caused a problem.  There were 4 from GLH and this year there will be a further 5 that could go to secondary school. To fund them the budget would need to be doubled.  So  for the first two years of secondary we  have  set up a small unit, partly self taught, to teach the 8 basic subjects for O level. We  obtained syllabii and schemes of work from a nearby secondary school.

GLV .   Girls at 13 are too young to be independent so GLH has started a small unit for ex GLH pupils teaching elementary sewing and hairdressing.  Our  students take the exams of a local technical college (getting grade B). There are 6 in year 2 and 1 in year 1.  Their teacher lives with them and supervises them.  Other. There are a further 3 in Secondary and Vocational School 2

Any questions or queries .. please ask. The headline is really the same as  prevous  years. Despite continuing problems GLH has housed, fed, loved and educated over 50 children. Thank you for your support; financial and in prayer. To God be the glory

Dear Friends,                                                                                                                                            07-10-19


Thank you for your continued support and Prayers for GLS, GLV and GLH. God has given us another chance to share about the school progress. Lovely and busy months with all the blessings of the seasons in the garden and the projects. Our primary seven sits for there exams on 2-4 November, some senior four students like Sharon starts their final exams on 14-October ,some of our staff like Julius ,Ritah to go for marking P.L.E exams, preparations for Nursery class graduations & end of year celebrations, Barbra graduating for certificate in accountancy on 25-October.

The Lord has brought us his angel with a donation for building project, nearly 50% of what we have been looking for to finish our classroom block. We hope to start on the building by 1/December/2019 when the school isn’t running in the long holidays. Subsequently, another friend has given us $1000 for children feeding (You could see children eating their meals) – Glory to the Lord of Heaven and Earth!

School has just started for a final term this year – We hope to be very busy –Nursery class will be graduating to primary one – Normally there are always end of year celebrations, there is a renewal application process required by GlobalGiving every after  two years and the time is now, this takes a considerable time to do, expected visitors before the year ends etc.

Project prayer points
• Primary seven students excels as well as the O-level students like Sharon
• Visitors security while here with us
• School fees and scholastic materials for the Children
• GLS Classroom block to be well finished and School text books
• Classroom chairs, Tables needed.
• Our final school term goes well.
• Safety from Child Abductions
• Volunteer tradesmen to come on board as soon as Possible to help with building needs
• Lusolo will be travelling to farewell his longtime friend in the USA who has a ticket in hands to heaven any time (Doctors have predicted 75 days to die following his cancer issues) – Pray for this friend and Lusolo.

Psalm 138:8 I know that the Lord will work out his plans for GLH future. “Please finish O Lord what you started”. Please keep up the “good” work. Things eventually come together for me because you pray. I am so privileged to be continually reinforced by angels and I sincerely thank you for your part in that

Blessings,

Dear Friends,                                                                                                                                                      10-07-19
Thank you for your continued support to GLS, GLV and GLH. God has given us another chance to share about the school progress. We have made some progress on our classroom building project-We are happy to report that the classrooms are in use now. Praise the Lord! The real challenge is now on children playground, Kitchen and Pit latrine (more convenient to children), classroom desks, Tables, scholastic materials, clothes and Children feeding: 

GLS playing on a neighborhood ground during weekend. We are blessed to welcome student teachers who are here to learn the practical aspect of their teaching. They help our children with both class work and physical exercise during break times. We do hope that this exercise will produce a good feedback to heath/learning life of our children. Primary 7 are very much fixed to studies with Julius, Justus and others doing great. We pray that our creator will value this effort for his glory. In this report , I felt a nag from the Lord to share about two specific children progress in words and pictures –Sharon and Elizabeth who both Joined us when babies – God has seen them through , Sharon in secondary four and Elizabeth in primary 5 .
Sharon’s words: - I had no hope of schooling but, I am now in senior four. I got saved after meeting James- James furthered my education from primary level to now secondary level. I will be doing UNEB in November this year. I have learnt hair dressing along the way within God’s Love Vocational school. I eat, drink and assured of medical treatment when I fall sick. Elizabeth(E) ; Double orphaned due to Aids – she has an Older brother in p6 who is HIV positive (Mother to birth infection) - E survived from infection  because the mother had known her status and started medication during pregnancy –sadly she died leaving E and the brother with us .
May the Lord bless you for supporting children like Sharon and Elizabeth and we pray that you will continue standing with them and many others at GLH.

There has been issues of mumps among the children, now past, but high medical expenses
Prayer Requests
1-Children good health2
2-Regular funder to come on board. We are praying for $1,150 monthly for 5 years to be able to maintain the support we are giving. Any contact to friends outside there will be appreciated.
3- Reading books for the children, classroom chairs and Tables needed.
4- Funds to purchase 50ft by 100ft plot of Land for children play
