BOLAM Weekly Update: Children had a great week and all are well
* Children: Keirungi children had another excellent week. They are all happy and in good health. We praise the Lord for this. Kato and Kakuru went to see their grandmother last weekend. 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, 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/Agriculture. Staff is also doing very well and planted sweet potatoes this week. The beans are growing well.
* Updates/Presentations/Meetings: We gave an update on our ministry at Crosstimbers Christian Fellowship, our sending church, anticipating our trip back to Uganda next month. We also gave a brief update at Northern Ridge Baptist Church. We are scheduled to give an update at Flatirons Baptist Church in Boulder, Colorado, May 21.
General Ugandan, World, and Cox Family Update:
* Orthopedic Doctor Appointments: I received a good report and can begin physical therapy for my shoulder. Primrose, however, did not receive such a great report. The doctor informed her that she needs to have surgery—due to rupturing her Achilles tendon—if she wants improved function of her leg. She plans to have surgery in the fall after returning from Uganda. Thank you for praying for both of us.
* Registration. While the U.S. debates having a national ID card, Uganda has already moved forward with one. It is compulsory for everyone in Uganda 16 years old and older to register to get a national ID card. Keirungi employees are in the process of registering.
