Our Visitors in December, 2008

A delegation from People to People A delegation from People to People

We were visited by a delegation out of Canada from People to People on December 1st, getting our month off to a great start.

A world biker from Germany stopped and spent three days at Urukundo before continuing his journey South. Adrian started his world trip 8 months ago in his home land Germany and will continue on into North America, Mexico, on to Australia and heading home. I am not sure how all that works. His bike is his transportation. Our boys were very impressed.

Noxi is a young lawyer from South Africa. She came to work at Urukundo over her Christmas break from her office. We were so grateful for her help while she was with us.

Progress on the Home for Girls

The girl's home is still a work in progress. The inside needs shelves, curtains, more tables, etc. The outside needs spouting, a tank to catch and hold water and beautification. God is good and so the girls have a very nice home that will only get better.

Thanks to all who have made this possible.

A Christmas Pageant

To celebrate Christmas, the kids put on a Christmas Pageant. It was great fun as the kids had to do the whole thing with as little adult help as possible. They did an amazing job. It was enjoyed by all.

I shared with the children the tradition of giving a gift to someone you love and the fun of the tree. Explaining that the tree is part of our culture. They had fun decorating the tree and each receiving a package from mom. The white bags are back packs and flip flops part of school supplies.

Urukundo Home vs Victory Orphanage Soccer Game

Both teams rented or borrowed uniforms and two official teams appeared. The uniforms did the trick. The win was ours. The score 11 to 0. It was impressive. Jubilation everywhere.

We are set for a rematch some time in January.
