Lots of stuff going on!
A second post today because I've got lots of stuff going on and I'm not sure when I'll post again. I'm headed back up to Karamoja Monday. I've been assured that the hut I'd like to stay in is empty and I'll be able to move in so I've been gathering all the things that one needs to furnish their own hut. Also we have been asked over and over if we can do HIV testing in Nakayot so I've begun the communication with the government to get permission and enough test kits. And the U.S.team from my home church arrives in two weeks so there is so much preparation going on for their time here. They hope to build a fish farm for the homeless boys. And I'm really enjoying the time I spend with the ladies out in Obule. Wednesday was bible study with them where we discussed what exactly is sin and how it creeps into our lives. I've also begun doing a bit of teaching out there. Taught about pinworms, thread worms, hook worms, whip worms, round worms and tape worms last time. The WHO estimates that more than 90% of people in this country have one type of intestinal parasite or another. Hand washing anyone? And trying to find time for Betty and Joyce to work on their school work. Betty scored a 35% on her last math test and Joyce still doesn't know the sound a B makes. Life is busy but it is a good busy. Thanks for staying faithful reader!
