...at a farming seminar the other, day....i know..don't ask, farming gods way...all the way from south africa, even though i think started in Zimbabwe...well the plan was to take our investment year to pass on to them new skills and also see what we can take in to the local community and also here at new hope...Uganda is so fruitful or has the potential to be, we have 2 harvests a year!! but generally the yield is not so good...its all about involving God in farming and treating the earth/soil with respect! also doing things with the highest standard, and no ploughing or burning....well we are trying a little 6 x 6 attempt amd we will let you know...maybe it is the start of a whole new career!!

..this last week, has been our annual P7 week...this is a week of youth activities for our top end of primary school (yr 7 in UK)..Their year is huge as they have big exams at the end of the yeat (PLE) which they have to pass to go to secondary school and therefore lots of pressure, and so a week of building relationships, having fun, seeing what God thinks about them seems like a good idea....and so armed with lots of games involving water, string, food and team work we set off on the week...during the week we also repaired someones house, dug in a garden and constructed a temporary shelter as well as some line dancing, footy, wide games and movies (raid on entebbe), gr8 fun and pretty exhausting...but we survived...
