In January 2016, UORF sponsored a Kids Camp for all of our middle school and secondary school-aged children. Much of the planning and implementation was provided by the UORF University students and graduates. The program included many inspirational speakers, sports, and music. A campfire and barbeque completed the 3-day event. UORF is looking forward to holding another Kids Camp over the Easter weekend at the end of March, 2018. It is a great time of fun, fellowship, and spiritual growth for our kids.

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.

In June a work crew traveled to Uganda to work at the home in Nkumba. The goal of this trip was to complete a dining hall and bathrooms for the home in Nkumba. The material for this project had been sent months earlier on the container (thanks again to those that donated material, funds, and shipping costs). The dining hall is an open structure like a park pavilion attached to the dormitory. On one end is a small office and room for the housemother to stay in. On the other end are 4 toilets facing the church and 4 showers facing the inside of the dining hall. Thanks to the 12 hour days by the work crew, endless hours donated by church members of Nkumba, and the older boys from the home, the building was complete in 6 days.
