Today there are so many amazing pictures i figured the only way to show them all is with a little game of question and answers.
How far did Rich and Page get away from the Miracle Van before they were swarmed with hugs of love from 300 precious children?
Rich : “Where is waldo (Rich)?”
Epa: “How many people here today are named Emmanuel (God With Us)?”
Question Katy: “Who is Gabbi hugging?”
Entire Team: “Who is the cute little purple kid/”
Epa: “Felix isn’t going to last another day without having a sponsor. He is a popular man.”
Page: “Who is sitting with Driver Emmy?”
Epa: Why that is his eldest daughter Gift. She is now attending PCM Mbarara and available for sponsorship. Did you know that our main school was given a commended rating by scoring the highest marks in the entire Mbarara district for the P7 students sitting for their exams? That means that they have done better than the children at ALL of the other schools in the state we operate, Mbarara district. I can’t tell you how amazing these teachers are. They are working in buildings where rain enters from the roof and windows when the wind comes, such a humble place, but the biggest reason they are doing so well is this place has a different kind of wind, the Holy Spirit. Superdad and Supermom have taught these teachers and these children to love the Lord with all their mind, heart and soul. I am not surprised one bit and neither would anyone who has ever sat in one of these classes.
Ambush “I remember this teacher, what is her name?”
Epa: “what you may not know about Petua is she is the only teacher that stayed with Pastor Emmy back in 2007-2008 when all of the teachers went all year with no pay. She was the only one to have faith to stay. PCM now employs over 50 people in Uganda and nearly half of them are teachers. We have a long line of teacher applicants and everyday someone is knocking on our door asking if they can work for us. We haven’t missed a single pay period since May 2008. God has been so faithful to us. Thank you sponsors for changing the lives of staff like Petua. She is full of joy as you can see.”
Kyomu “Dad look at this kid……he is so cute!”
Emily “Have you seen my dad?”
Epa: “What is Ambush doing now (caution this question could be repeated frequently) ?”
Epa ” slight change of schedule. We need to go to the new land at Katyazo because the fish guy is there delivering our 2 month old tilapia hatchlings.”
Katy “are there any crocodiles in this pond?”
Epa “we will see those next week at Queen Elizabeth National Park.”
Emily ” Is my dad eating this tilapia?”
Emily “Dad you didn’t eat it did you?”
Kyomu: “I can’t understand what Emmy is saying this old man’s name is that brought the fish.”
Thank you Neisha Rudd at Today’s Vision, Shaun and Abbie Halberstadt, and Bill Kirby. This day would have never happened without you. Over 1000 fish were put in two tilapia ponds. Next year the children should be eating a lot more fish. Mukama Asiimwe. Praise God.
What would you title this picture?
Epa “Emmy whose cow is that next to you with the horns?”
Kyomu “Why is Driver Emmy calling this man “milky boy?”
Epa ” I now have a new project. Godfrey we are going to get you a motorbike to make this milk run. May the Lord richly bless you for your service to these orphan children.”
Kyomu: “Dad he is ripped.”
Ambush “Dads don’t have muscles like those.”
Epa “These people look like a trail of ____ ?”
Epa “What building are we standing in?
Epa: “We have three buildings currently going up in construction. A boy’s dorm, a girls dorm and 4 classrooms.”
Rich: “This is amazing. You would pay millions for a view like this in the US.”
Patient’s parent to Epa in his doctor’s office: “What is one of the best things you can do for your daughter?”
Epa: “Take them on a mission trip to the third world. They will never ever be the same. And neither will you.”
Epa: “Driver Emmy can you go get about 40 watermelons? We want to have them before dinner.”
Driver Emmy “I shall return with the melons.”
What are the names of these PCM children?
Sula bulungi “Good Night”
