2014 Christmas at V.O.H

It was  a good time full of joy on the day of remembering the day our Saviour was born. From watching JESUS' Film  on 24th on our Projector..for the New Children ,it was their first time to watch Jesus' film and more so on the big screen.
On Christmas day, it was a mourning of lots of cooking, preparing for Church all in their New clothes and Shoes and lots of excitement especially from the Children and the Mothers in their New Gomesi (traditional wear) all provided by Hope Builders International.. The service started at 10:00 am and ended at 1:30pm ,headed home for the Great Lunch prepared by the mothers and the big girls served in the Main shade with lots of Sodas, Music , pausing for photos and many others.
After lunch, it was time for a day out, little ones went for movies at Miracle Center , i went with rest at Town Hall for a gospel Family Show,....... We had a good time with Boys and girls and i was soo Happy to celebrate X-MAS while building Hope in all most Hundreds of Children at V.O.H.

Schoolies Revolution 4's Last Days in Uganda

Our last days with the Schoolies Team 4 were indeed a blessing to us all at Village of Hope and Uganda at large. Lots of  Humanitarian activities from Building a whole House for the next 8 orphans and a widow,visiting the female's prison blessing them with bibilical teachings and gifts, visiting the slums to the most vulnerable families ,sharing with them and offering them gifts, a football match on Monday which ended in favor of African Builders...........Thank you Schoolies for the missionary work in Africa'
On Sunday we (admin and Directors) were treated to a dinner with the Team members at All Friends restuarant and this was a wonderful moment to enjoy with lots of eats and drinks.
Team and Children's side, it was lots of stories when the team and children went to King Fisher for swimming, it was a good time, very joyous and full of exploring.....from the Nile bridge ,Owen falls Dam and other features which some had never seen.
All the above was wrapped up by a farewell party at the Village Shade ,this ranged from cultural dances, songs(in particular an Aus Traditional Presentation), speeches , award of certificates , and lots of Sodas and snacks.......
Again Thanks to Hope Builders International...... in the fight to Break the Cycle of Poverty.
