December 2016 Newsletter
Early this month I returned to Tanzania. The children are well and happy. Of course, three good meals a day, a warm bed and lots of love and attention helps.
I would like to introduce a new employee. Her name is Neema Fyumagwa from a village near Iringa town (about a 6 hour bus ride from Uhekule). She is 21 years old and for the past 4 years has been studying at a vocational school in Njombe. She is now certified in Animal Husbandry. Neema is soft spoken, easy to be with and is very, very polite and respectful….amazing young lady. She takes care of our 3 cows, 20 rabbits and many chickens. She also tends to our gardens and fields. We love her.
The rainy season has started but NO RAIN, so strange. What is the problem….maybe global warming? Who knows? Fortunately, Uhekule Village has received more rain than most of the surrounding villages; therefore, our potato crop looks good. Praise the Lord! This is the crop that most of our villagers depend on for income.
Our school year begins in early January. We will have eight in grade 7, two in grade 6, two in grade 5 and one in grade 4. We now have 8 in higher education attending boarding schools all over Tanzania.
As always, we are grateful for your donations, care packages and sponsorship of our orphans.
p.s. Our fabulous missionaries, Rhonda and Richard Hanssen, will be returning to Tanzania from their 6 week visit in the U.S. to take over Sunrise Children’s Home. I will be semi-retired by Jan. 20th, 2017. It is time.
