BOLAM Weekly Update: Odongo and Opio resettled
* Children: Please pray for Night as she fell sick with Malaria and Blessing who was diagnosed with Candida overgrowth (Candida is a fungus that aids in digestion but when overproduced can cause various health problems). Blessing had to have six injections to treat it. Thank you for praying for 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 and Innocent Tumwesigye) and for those children we have resettled with their families (Ninsiima and Odongo and Opio).
* Resettlement: Odongo and Opio were resettled with their mother. Please pray for the boys as they transition to life with their mother and away from Keirungi.
* Agriculture: Staff harvested Irish potatoes. The crop was only fair as there was prolonged sunshine this season. Everyone is enjoying eggplants from the garden.
General Ugandan Update:
* Terrorist Threat. The U.S. Embassy in Kampala emailed the following warning to residents of and travelers in Uganda: “The U.S. Embassy has received information regarding a specific terrorist threat to Kampala. The threat information indicates that a group of attackers is possibly in place and ready to strike targets inside Kampala in February or March. There are indications that the Ugandan National Museum is one of the potential targets. As potential targets can change, the Embassy cautions U.S. citizens to avoid this site and other crowded public places and/or events that are potential targets to terrorists.” Please pray for God’s protection over Uganda from terrorist attacks. There were two bombings in Kampala during the World Cup in July 2010 that killed over 70 people and nearly 70 people were killed last September in Nairobi, Kenya, at a popular mall.
