Dear His Love and SONshine supporters, This is Rachel Guy.:)
Our child sponsorship coordinator, Charles Byaruhanga, went to Gateway Nursery and Primary School April 12th! Charles is amazing and as always goes above and beyond! See below Charles' update that he shared with the board about his time at Gateway and some of the pictures he took!!
PS in Charles’ report he mentions Jaaja Ava and Maddie.
(Jaaja Ava (Jaaja pretty much means grandmother in Lugandan) and Maddie are missionaries in Uganda and Ava has been really engaged in the lives of the people at Gateway for years and is a part of the fabric of the community and was on our board for a while!!)
Charles Byaruhanga shares in summary, "Hi team! I hope everyone is doing very well . I am so excited to share about my trip today to Bwerenga. It was such a blessing to meet Pastor Ernest and Mama Catherine again, and also meeting the students was another blessing too.
My first day was a blessing because Jaaja Ava introduced me to our His Love and SONshine sponsored kids and to the headteacher Mr. Henrey and Pastor.
I love the kids so much, at Bwerenga school! They were so excited and beautiful children . Jaaja Ava and Maddie and I were able to see all the sponsored children and we had time to help them to write the letters to their sponsors.
I took a couple of pictures of each classroom from baby class to primary seven.
I am going back to the school next week and will be sending pictures of each and every student and some stories and also other information about the kids.
Have a blessed day!"
Thank you, Charles, for the amazing pictures and update!!!
God Bless, Rachel
When Rachel Guy was in elementary school, she was fascinated by children in African countries; her heart was particularly drawn to children who had been orphaned. At the age of twelve, the country of Uganda became the focus of Rachel’s interest and concern when a close family friend, Nancy Wellham, invited her to join her on a mission’s trip there. It was on this trip that Rachel visited Gateway Nursery and Primary school and fell in love with the people there. Four years ago, Rachel was shocked when she was invited to start a ministry for the school. With humility and gratitude, she said, “Yes” to this unlikely adventure with God.
