James and the Children at God’s Love Home, September 2020
It has been another difficult month for James but, doing the accounts, I have been thrilled at the way that different people have been moved to give. James has had sufficient over the last 6 months to feed the children, give support to guardians and 75% of teacher salaries. So much to thank God for.
Covid cases are on the rise in Kampala but numbers, relatively, are small. Exam classes are allowed to reopen from next Monday so P7 will be coming back (subject to Ministry approval of covid preparations) . Still no news for the other classes. James compound was broken into by thieves in the middle of the night. No one was injured and little taken but neighbours did not get off so lightly. There is a rise in bag snatching and robbery. Matron’s husband is better. James mother is not well and wants to go back to her home near Masindi but, due to her frailty, she was refused public transport. James may try again this weekend. One correspondent suggested that every person with an income supports 5 or 6 others.
There is so much need around that it is easy to be paralysed and do nothing. Be assured your loving interest, prayerful and financial support have achieved so much. Please pray for the children and staff: pray for a “hedge of protection” for their safety from Covid and especially for the transfer of money and while it is being carried around.
