CHILDREN SINGING...another school to help.

The Lakeside Preparatory School, Mbiru is located in a poor fishing village on the banks of Lake Victoria. This is one of the most needy areas in the country. We are going to repair the roof of the building and install a rain water catchment system.

We will also build a new latrine structure for the school. Currently 320 students use this one latrine with outdoor urinals.

The children sang for us when we met there to discuss their project

This is awesome!! Y'all are doing a great job.

Leslie, Channi, Brandon & Carson moved to Utah in March.

My mom was baptized on 7/18. She is a great example to all. I'm very proud of her.

DD is staying too busy w/Bishop responsibilities.

Hope you both are doing good.

Love y'all,

"Everything must have a beginning"
Children at an orphanage in Entebbe, Uganda. There are so many children here it is incredible; there are orphans everywhere. The people take them in and it is not unusual to see families struggling with 8-10 children. We talked to a woman yesterday who has taken in twelve children. She said, "sometimes I feel sad that I cannot do more, but everything must have a beginning". We have decided to use that as our personal reminder to guide our actions here as we try to help.
