Today i asked henry for an update on the field, the soapmaking and the biggest needs for christmas.
i offered to buy goats. Why? People i talk to all want to buy things for people and its fun to know what you’re getting the families. Henry wrote me about what he thinks would be the greatest use of christmas funds.
Thanks for getting back to me so soon. Poultry would be good for an on
going project like we have with the field. The only uphill task with
this is feeding till maturity age.
A good Christmas gift as you say is clothes. We made an assessment not
long ago and found that a good number of the children had uniform. Most
of them were using the same uniform to wear at home because they did not
have home clothes.
Reason : To be admitted in school one has to have uniform. So it
becomes first priority to buy uniform because it is a must to wear in
school. I think if we bought some clothes for them to celebrate
Christmas like any other children, then this would be fantastic.
The field is doing great. We have plenty of rain and we prepared the
land in good time for planting. The harvest might be very good this time
than last time.
Our Saturday meetings are very good. Eunice put together a big bunch of
clothes that Joyce has out grown and gave the girls. This made a big
difference. A friend of mine brought some rubber shoes for each child
and this motivated the children the more.
We meet together on Saturday 3 pm for a bible lesson before the
children break to have fun, sing and do activities together. The
guardians left behind to discuss the progress so far and how best to
make the project grow.
Soap making proved a bit difficult to start because of finances. We
have however not given up completely. This will soon come after saving
some money from the ornaments and from the farm produce.
