Don't you all agree that the word "journey" describes life in the broken world we're currently living in? When troubles weigh heavy on our hearts, we can only find comfort in the knowledge that He protects us and we must trust Him. That's what all of us are doing at Home of Angels right now.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that we have some disturbing news. Ebola has now hit our city of Jinja. It's moved north over the past month from the capital city of Kampala, but we knew it would only be a matter of time. Edwin was asked to be on the "Eradicating Ebola" team for Jinja, helping to prepare posters, equipping vans with loudspeakers explaining to the people about Ebola. They did the same with COVID and it made an impact. This team will travel a radius of approximately 100km. Edwin can only help with decisions because of the workload he and Precious currently have at home.
Schools will be permanently closed on November 25th and there is no word yet regarding churches. Parents cannot afford school fees without working so this means no wages for the teachers. We're able to stay open because our children are secure inside our walls and the new home is almost finished allowing the staff who teach throughout the week as to not expose themselves outside the walls going home.
With global warming, the wind and rains have been continual throughout this past month. Edwin and Precious have tried very hard for pictures but it hasn't been easy. We've never missed a blog in 14 years so whether we're dealing with diseases or climate change, the blogs will go on with flashbacks.
