BOLAM Weekly Update - Pray for Blessing and Antony
* Children: The week was generally good for our children. Only that Blessing injured her leg (knee), but she is improving greatly. Antony seems to be handling the death of his mother okay. Please continue to pray for God’s comfort for him. Caleb, Jr., has improved greatly and completed his medication treatment. Thank you for praying. On their holiday, children are busy doing various activities such as games, sports, music, and storytelling, along with having Bible lessons. Alex seems to be a bright child but refuses to cooperate and do well at school. We are counseling him. Please pray for him, along with all of our children at Keirungi: Joseph, Alex, Amanya, Kato, Kakuru, Gift, Night, Determine, Murungi, Antony, Deo, Blessing, Shalom, Nunu, Evelyn, Friday, Namara, Innocent Tumuhimbise, Innocent Tumwesigye, and Hanisha and Amri. Thank you, also, for praying for those children we have resettled with their families: Ninsiima and Odongo and Opio.
* Staff: Staff is doing very well.
* Spiritual: Odongo, Opio, and their mom (Night) celebrated Easter at Keirungi. Everyone was happy to see them. Night thanked us for our support. Caleb shared about the importance and necessity of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. He discussed how the resurrection demonstrates God’s power over death and gives us the assurance that we also will be resurrected. The power of God that raised Jesus from the dead provides us eternal life if we have believed in Jesus for the forgiveness of our sins.
* Agriculture: Staff completed planting beans this week and began on weeding eggplants.
* Updates/Presentations/Meetings: We are scheduled to give an update at Crosstimbers and Northern Ridge Baptist Church May 4 and Flatirons Baptist Church May 21.
General Ugandan, World, and Cox Family Update:
* Shoulder/Leg. I am getting back all normal functions with my arm and shoulder—without weight, of course. We have appointments with the orthopedic surgeon Monday 5/5. Thank you for your prayers.
