Looking Beyond the Lockdown
During this pandemic it has been so hard on everyone. However, I am so grateful for the way how we have gone through these months with hope for an expected end after this time of lockdown and quarantine. Before the pandemic we had took the step to buy plots for planting soy, corn and sweet potatoes to feed the families and communities we support and also sustain the piggery project as the pigs are multiplying and growing. This is the work we did throughout this hard times.
This proved challenging as Uganda went on lockdown and many could not get out to work. We thank God for the protection and perseverance of the youth in Kirindi. We are very grateful for having them work and being able to put food on the table for their families when no one could go to work. Through this season we have been able to grow 5 acres of corn, 1 acre of soy, and 2 acres of sweet potatoes. It has not been easy but we thank God for the growth and for their labour and efforts not to be vain.
This was the beginning as you can see, the rain was going to destroy the corn because we had not dug out the tunnels to carry the rain water down to the river. We also had to remove the weeds so that the corn would not be destroyed. David, our ground ambassador gathered the youth and some older men who needed work to come to our aid and we started right away.
We believe in the time of harvest the corn, sweet potatoes be of great help when the children come back to school. We are starting to plant another 2 acres of cassava please keep us in your prayers as we proceed. We know that the Lord is with us as we continue on this journey. Throughout we have kept going and it seems we are moving in the right direction. This is where we are now please keep us in your prayers as we move ahead blessings. We want to extend our thanks and gratitude to Papa Clyde in Canada who has stood with us in a mighty way through this time. We thank God for all our donors and prayer partners who continue to stand with us in al we do. God bless you so very much.
