In the last newsletter we told you about Ronnie, the teenaged boy from Lake Victoria Children” Home. Ronnie came to work as a plumbers helper at Nkumba during his spring break to earn money for his soon to be orphaned cousins. When we were in Uganda in June we had a chance to see his work first hand. In the middle of the courtyard area where the children play was a brand new septic tank waiting for the
new bathrooms.

When planning our trip to Uganda, several times I wondered what I would do to stay busy while the guys were busy working on the building. Several trips to Kampala and a visit to Bethel Covenant College to check on the progress of the 7 LVCH boarding school children filled the first few days. Once the shipping container arrived in Nkumba, there was plenty of unpacking and sorting to do. The 40 boxes of thrift-center clothing and shoes had to be sorted by size and gender.
