We are now into the last stages of our time at schools. People at Glory for Education only have one more week of normal teaching.
The last week has been inspired. Last Sunday finished with a visit to a place where they do traditional dancing and singing held together by a story so loose, one tug and it would have fallen apart. The dancing on the other hand was amazing and when you’ve seen men dancing while playing drums balanced on their heads you can pretty much say you’ve seen everything. That is until you see women dancing with nine pots on their heads. The drumming was totally mesmerizing and alone would have been impressive.
Monday consisted of a relaxed morning succeeded by a visit to Ssezwera falls which was okay. They were your fairly bog standard tourist waterfalls consisting largely of water pouring from one height over rock to another. They certainly had little to attract the discerning tourist (opinion of me (David) not everyone in the group!!)
Tuesday was a very exciting day as in the night we had an Earthquake and then Sarah got bitten by a snake later in the day. It was also April fools day!
Thursday held an exciting yet definitely Ugandan evening. We had planned for four teachers from Children’s Corner to come over for the evening. That was fine and dandy but then Rita (a woman from church) phoned in the afternoon to say she had prepared a meal for us (a misunderstanding which meant she had prepared food for eleven extra people). So anyway we split and some stayed with the guests while others went to Rita’s house. (So it was Ugandan in the way it was so chaotic.)
Friday was great fun but you’ll hear more of the Glory/Kitti action in the news from the schools. In the evening we had our first BBQ on our fantastically built barbecue. We invited all the Street Kids workers over and had a fantastic evening.
On Saturday Rosie, Ruth, Freya, Sam and Giles (guest star – just visiting for a week and a bit) deserted us in favour of gorillas. So we had a fairly relaxed and good Saturday despite (or because of!) their absence.
Now onto news from the schools.
Life continues at a pace with lots of painting going on with the undercoats practically done they move on to the murals shortly.
Child Evangelism has also changed having been divided into three so that there are smaller groups. Please pray about the changes and that God would guide each of the people leading the groups.
Another week at the old prison (David still!). It’s been an interesting week particularly on Wednesday with Teacher Kenneth doing a talk that was distinctive in its unsound theology (implications that Christians become more good looking once saved). So we had to do some repair work. The rest of the week seems to have been overshadowed by the football and Netball match with Glory for Education.
Match report for Kitti vs Glory football match
Having dominated the whole match Kitti lost due to a big defensive mistake and strikers who would struggle to hit a barn door if they were actually glued to it. The first half was uneventful except for some of the football chants as shown in the title of the post but the second half contained the goal and some fairly awful fowls.
(It’s a short match report I’ll grant you but how many people writing match reports only have a few minutes before the internet will stop working?)
Netball was completely dominated by the Glory for Education girls who were as big as gorillas (only joking) so there wasn’t much competition.
Glory for Education
Spent all their time training the football team, bribing professional players to pretend they go to Glory and giving the team steroids so they don’t have much to say!!
Enough from me
