Salima has been teaching our six children so they won’t fall behind. She has started teaching in our big building. The government also has classes on TV twice a day according to their grade levels that they watch at her home. We are proud she has taken this on by herself. We don’t know yet how schooling will be handled once quarantine is over since children have missed pretty much an entire term. And they also have Bible class. The girls were telling me so many scriptures and stories in the Bible today. Salima brought them to clean the apartments next door – she usually cleans once a month so it doesn’t get overrun by spider webs. She said they need to learn how to clean!
Out of 97 confirmed cases there are only 18 active cases right now, others have recovered or where sent back to their countries (truckers before the countries they are from wouldn’t let them come back – making Uganda treat them) No deaths. 2080 finished 14 day follow up from quarantine. Under follow up 808. So far so good I think for an impoverished and vulnerable country of over 50 million people! Thank you Lord and President Museveni
Thursday was two of our girls birthdays. They are sisters five years apart but share the same date! Their older brother and sister share a same birthday also. It was the first day we have seen them since we quarantined almost two months ago so it was a joy to see them. We got to visit for a few minutes but it was the highlight of the last two months! They are both (along with their sisters) are the sweetest girls, always joyful and have a huge love for Jesus and for their community. And us! They bring us joy but Salima is such a great and close friend to me. I think I might have been the happiest to see her!
Hope for today
Happy Easter to everyone! I know Easter this year is different for everyone but have loved seeing different ways people are celebrating in the states! Here is the third part of our Resurrection Day story!
