BOLAM Weekly Update: Children happily begin their holiday
* Children: The children had a good week, especially those who go to school because they are now on break having completed the first term (the second term is scheduled to begin May 19). Blessing placed second in her class. Please pray for Caleb junior as he had cough and cold this week. Thank you for praying for all of our supported 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 okay and doing their work well.
* Spiritual: Caleb shared last Sunday 4/13 about how Christians might face troubles and opposition for their faith, but that we are assured of ultimate victory. The children learned a Bible passage about Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Staff is preparing to celebrate Easter.
* Agriculture: Staff continued planting and weeding beans and planted cabbage and spinach seedlings this week.
* Updates/Presentations/Meetings: We will give an update presentation at Northern Ridge Baptist Church in Erie, Colorado, on May 4 during their evening service that begins at 6 p.m. In addition, we are scheduled is give an update presentation at Flatirons Baptist Church in Boulder, Colorado, May 21. The service begins at 6:45 p.m.
* Mission Trip: We continued planning Northern Ridge’s mission trip to Keirungi in August.
* Adoption: We are helping our first family plan their trip to Uganda to go to court to get guardianship of the children they are adopting. A court date has not been set yet.
General Ugandan, World, and Cox Family Update:
* Shoulder. My arm and shoulder continue healing nicely. I am able to drive again. Oh, how I have missed my independence! I have a follow-up appointment in two weeks. Thank you for your prayers.
* Leg: Primrose ruptured her Achilles tendon about 2½ years ago and it has never seemed to heal properly or completely as it still bothers her. My orthopedic doctor examined her and ordered an MRI, which she did on Friday. After seeing the condition of the tendon, he will be able to discuss options with her from intense physical therapy to surgery. Please pray that the best course of treatment for long-term healing is determined. I am trying to envision us traveling in June with me not able to lift anything with my right arm and Primrose limping along, perhaps in a cast.
