What an amazing trip, I met the Bishop of Kabale. What a lovely humble man. I visited the nursery school, met the head master and teachers and had some time with the children too, what amazes me the most is that they really are dedicated to learning. Many of them know this is there only chance. Some come to school with no shoes but they make sure they are at school, some children walking 5 miles there and 5 miles back to get there to learn. This is me with the nursery children.
Things have been a little quiet on the Nabasa Trust front line over the last few weeks, we had a very successful launch party and our first trustee meeting. I (Jo-head of UK team) am preparing to move to Lee Abbey in Devon next week. After eight years in London, God is moving me there to live and work as part of the Lee Abbey community for a year. It will be a real year of rest and developing my relationship and faith in God. In terms of the Nabasa trust, I will be telling people about us and what we do. I will be also beginning to make things to sell at events as well as waiting to see what doors God may open for us whilst I am there.
• pray for the move for myself.
• pray as we step out into getting the Nabasa Trust known about within Lee Abbey community and guests.
• Pray as we complete our registration in Uganda that will enable us to work there.
