From Peter and Rose in Uganda
Dear John and friends at Magor
It was great to join Magor on Sunday. It has been 5 months of politics and I had very limited Internet access in the last few weeks. This is in the interest of security but government has promised to improve on this as time goes on. It is so far so good and we hope tranquillity will remain. I loved joining as much as I could this afternoon for your thoughts on Jonah.
School is on again with new challenges. I really pray that the education we offer will benefit the children in their increasingly unpredictable future. That it will equip them to face a new world with new standards, blues and diseases. Our prayer is for provision. Currently there is no harvest that means even no food. Running cost of the school is rising. More staff, fewer children, at the moment even parents who used to contribute towards the school financially are not in position. At the farm there is water and I want to do a system of irrigation. So many prayer points let me stop there.
One day I went to work at the fish pond. When I looked up, one boy had followed me and he had caught a catfish. When the others saw it the numbers built up from nowhere. I told them ‘go away’. One of the smallest ones looked at me, he laughed and pointed at me saying ‘Kachogipitachefaki!’ that was his version of Kasozi Peter Cephas. He did not believe such a command was in front of my smiling face.
My normal welcome would be a hug. It is now replaced with demand for one or two metres of social distance.
The wider social distance gets the closer my heart goes to them. That is how I stay on the boat going in the right direction. God gives me a way of reaching out where they are. I love them I know firsthand what they are going through. I have been there myself. They will always need someone. With your generosity, you have always practically come with me as I look for them. God bless and reward you richly,
Peter and Rose.
