Greetings from Urukundo Village for February 2015

February was a LOVE FROM THE HEART month. How appropriate that Urukundo should experience so much love in this month dedicated to sharing love. I am a bit sentimental about Valentines and passing LOVE along.

Our new dental relationship is so special - I could not wait to share it in this regular newsletter! Can any blessing top that or at least equal it?

Well, yes it can!

More wonderful news came our way.

We received a gift to allow us to continue building Urukundo Learning Center (primary 4). We give thanks for that gift. Yet to be constructed is Primary 4, 5 and 6. Primary 4 construction will start this March. This is the site chosen for that building.

It will set between the GLASCOW CENTER FOR THE ARTS and THE PRIMARY 1, 2, 3 BUILDING. The view from the school is spectacular.


Worship Sunday

Our worship Sunday morning is wonderful as our Precious Gems choir continues to grow in size. Community children come to sing with the Precious Gems.

Baby Jason is still too young for the choir, but it won’t be long.


Big Steps for a Little Person

Jenett taking some big steps! Walking is a big deal when you are a beginner.Playing peek-a-boo with Mama.Big chairs are fun to hide behind!



Prince, Kaboss and Rebekah collecting paper during Umuganda Day.Umuganda is fun because Mama walks with the kids and points at the litter and then the kids pick it up! You got it - I do not bend real well any more so I point and they do the stooping. Anyway, they are built closer to the ground!


Play Time

School kids enjoying the playground and soccer field.Both fields are very busy places every day. Our play ground exists thanks to RAISED HANDS FOR AFRICA. This wonderful group hail from North Carolina.
