Thank You for Helping Meet the Immediate Needs for the our School in Gulu

Presently schooled in a large temporary building in a former Refugee camp in Gulu, until the buildings and full farm project on Family Care Uganda land, in Gulu district are completed.

Gloria’s young class, eager to see if they got the answer right.

In order to make the School self-sustaining, Family Care Uganda is setting up an income generational mixed farm that will cover all the expenses of the school.

In order to keep the school running in the meantime we are looking for sponsors.

    I believe in you. I’ve known you for a long time or maybe not in person for very long but in reading, e-mail & computer. (I lived with you for a short time in Hong Kong, the one who blew out the electronic computer, do you remember)? You are a “real” & wonderful missionary. I pray that I can send my kids to help you one summer. Yes, I will help so how do I send money. What is the number that I need to send a regular gift to you. Let me know.
    Keep up the great work you all are doing. Love, Renee
