V.O.H Christmas Celebrations 2015

Yesterday when celebrating the New born King at Village of Hope, it was about excitement, and getting ready for Church,; in our new outfits from one family to another.This time church didn't take long as usual ,it was a special day for every one not only at the Village but every where in the community.
At the Village, it was a joyous day for the children,mothers and the rest we celebrated with us....,Megan from Aus ,Rachael's family from England. Children had a blast in their x-mas outfits with lots of foods and drinks as we all converged in our main shade for the big celebration.
We also had dancing competitions class by class and Pre-school emerged as the day's winners.The evening was crowned with Juice and Ice Cream refreshments while watching a couple of movies on our giant screen.
Our celebrations went on well and everyone was sooo happy ,children were smart and the food was delicious and there were lots of sodas for all..........Big thanks to everyone out there who the Lord used to make this possible, may he BLESS YOU ALL,. Ivan

Now at Village of Hope ,there is another raised structure from your efforts in 2weeks which is to offer accommodation for more 8vulnerable children here in UG..From carrying heavy bricks to handling a shovel for the first time, God has used you to have this house at Wall plate just a few days of your stay.
During these 2weeks, you've put smiles on Children's faces through games and sports,outing for a pool swim, gifts and a lot more... Including the dancing strokes of our cultural music which you had  a few minutes to learn.
In your time still, our Pre-School pupils graduated to primary School with a big celebration at Hopeland, also ,we had  a good time with Director Johann from a management meeting to dinner with the whole Team at Sun Set Hotel...
Your stay i must say has been a blessing to Uganda Hope Builders International, we crowned it with a farewell and afforded to offer you a simple certificate of appreciation....Thanks to all Schoolies2015''
