...the harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few
It is hard to believe it has been over three months since we left. Life has been very busy here for us in Uganda. Adjusting back to life here with a little one hasn’t come without its challenges, but all is going well.

When we first arrived back everyone was excited to see us and of course to meet baby Rachel. Churches were open, the school was running with specific classes due to the Covid restrictions and we all hoped and expected that soon the school would be back in full swing as we returned from furlough, but sadly a month or so after arriving back, things across the country got worse and everything was closed again. But we trust and know that the Lord is over all and as a team we have had no shortage of other things to do regardless of the Covid-19 circumstances.

Hannah had been enjoying teaching at Sunday school again and was also busy in the office while looking after Rachel. Rachel has changed a lot in the last few months, but we are thankful to the Lord that He has kept her in perfect health even though both of us ended up being sick a little while back. We’re thankful that we are both back to normal and we are extremely grateful for all who prayed for us.

One of my main tasks for this period in Uganda was to renovate the guest house. Previously one bedroom, we have been able to turn it into a four-bedroom apartment and although it has been difficult to get supplies at times due to the restrictions we are working hard to get it completed so that it will be ready for use.

The renovation will include a newly configured layout with new plumbing, electrics, kitchen, bathroom, windows, doors, finished flooring, etc. You should be able to see some of the demolition work and a few of the new changes in the photos - Click here to view.

You will see the lower section of the building has been plastered to help combat damp from the porous brick and also we have completed the electrical first fix as well as the first coat of paint.

We have been busy with other smaller maintenance issues as well. This might not look like much, but the old chimneys for the school kitchen were so badly rusted that the wind was blowing a large proportion of the smoke back into the kitchen and therefore choking the school cook. This small fix required us to make box sections from a flat sheet of steel, so that the cook can regularly empty these chimney box sections from any ash which does not rise up and out of the chimney flue.

We thank you again for all the support and continued prayers. We very much appreciate it and look forward to sharing more of what the Lord would have us do here in the coming months.
