Tick tick tick...! And the first school building!

Wow, 2011 is flying by!  I've just returned from a week plus trip, and am now settling down for the six week countdown before my next visit to Uganda. We will be gone about 3 weeks, and I will be visiting Jinja for several days to go to Bukaleba and see the progress at the primary school, and out in the field with the hospice team. I am planning to take lots of video as well as photos this trip, so stay tuned!

Ryan is going for Spring Break, earlier in March, and will be interviewing all of our partners for her honors thesis on Ugandan NGOs, and hopefully will bring back great information and videos.

We are now in formal planning mode for the missions trip. It looks like there will be 6 definites, and we have 2 or 3 still pending. We will be starting our "group building" activity this month, as well as planning our fundraising activities. We have plenty of room if you are interested, so let me know!

We need $14,000 to finish the first school building, and I am working on raising that this week. If we can get it funded, they can start classes next term!  Please consider helping!

Thanks all! And blessings to you for your continued prayers and support.
