BOLAM Weekly Update: Children doing better
* Children: Tests confirmed that another child at Keirungi has HIV. Please pray for this child and for the other child who has HIV as the child had a negative reaction this week to ARVs. The children who were sick last week are all doing better (Blessing, Innocent Tumwesigye, and Gift who has a broken arm). Thank you for praying! Last Sunday, Keirungi had a special service of memory verse recitations. Blessing is our star reciter rivaling daddy. We also celebrated birthdays for Namara, Antony, Gift and Evelyn on Sunday. 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/Spiritual: Staff is doing well. Caleb finished reviewing the letters of John in the weekly Bible study. They learned that we should walk in light and also in love.
* Agriculture: This week, staff dug a swampy area and planted spinach.
* Fellowship: We enjoyed breaking bread with our church (Crosstimbers) on Memorial Day before we leave for Uganda.
* Travel: Life is becoming extremely busy as we leave for Uganda in 11 days—1½ weeks!!! June 11 here we come!
General Ugandan, World, and Cox Family Update:
* Initiation: Since Samuel moved to Uganda in fifth grade and has mostly been in Uganda the last five years, he was never officially initiated into Crosstimbers’ youth group. Well, he got initiated last Sunday. About 10 youth quietly came into his room about 6:45 a.m. and yelled, “Wake up, Samuel!” No, it was not God speaking to Samuel as Eli concluded. They then blindfolded Samuel and took him to the vehicle. Pleasantly, he ended up at Golden Corral for a nice breakfast, but did have to go to church in his night clothes. Thankfully, he was wearing track pants with a tee-shirt!
* Fellowship: We enjoyed fellowship with Ugandan friends before going to Uganda (somehow, this sounds a little strange).
