Wonderful updates from Africa!

Greetings to all!
I have just returned from Kenya and Uganda after having visited our many projects. The reason for my visit is to bring accountability and report to you.
Lenten Bread/Soup Suppers enabled us to buy a cow for Anne and her family. “Blessing,” as they have named the cow, was happy to see me, too! They are now milking 7 liters per day and hope to have more within the next few months after Blessing gives birth to her calf. The piggery, chicken, and goat projects are all bringing much-needed income for the families to pay their children’s school fees! Freeing them from DEPENDENCY to INDEPENDENCE!
Buy A Gift And Give A Gift Of Education to a child – 100% goes to the tailor. The Mother’s sewing project is also doing well with the new sewing machines, tables and irons that were purchased. Their challenge is selling the items they make. So I filled my bags with aprons, placemats, and shoulder bags for sale here at Christmas. So please consider purchasing a gift from us whenever you have to buy a birthday or Christmas present. I call it “Double Dip” – two for the price of one! Wow!
Girls Dormitory Building – needs to be completed still!
Next anticipated project – bee keeping and selling honey!
Padre Pio/Mother Teresa operating theater for Babies – in collaboration with the canonization of Mother Teresa in September we are raising funds to add on an Operating room to save the babies who are risk of dying at birth due to being breached, or other complications that are could have been avoided if only they had the facilities under a doctor’s care.
As always I return with great “Labor Pains” – our brothers and sisters waiting for us to share our abundant blessings with them, begging us for BASIC NEEDS! So I appeal to you again to continue to make that sacrifice for our brothers and sisters so they do not have to wait and suffer such hardships because we have kept our wealth for our own comfort. Thank you dear friends for all your support. We are so grateful to you. Anytime you can come and see and experience the JOY you bring to those who have less, please consider visiting our brothers and sisters in Kenya and Uganda!
God Bless you and your family,
