I wish I had pictures of the birthing center, but I don't:(. The internet network is not cooperating and Godfrey is moving. I promise I will post them as soon as I get them.

Please continue to pray for the completion of the birthing center and all of the women and children treated there. Please pray for Sunday School and Pastor David. Please pray that revenue will be raised to start an income generation project for the men in the village. Please pray that more volunteers would come forth to work in the village.

Thank you so much for your prayers.

kNOw More Orphans

This weekend I had the privaledge of attending the kNOw More Orphans conference at Hunter Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, AL. It was a BLESSING!!! It was wonderful to be surrounded by people that wanted the same thing, NO MORE ORPHANS. It was wonderful to be in the midst of other organizations that were working toward this goal. It was wonderful to see so many people working in Uganda, and to see how dear the country and its people were to all of us. It was wonderful to talk with these people and talk about our successes and trials and to share our burdens.

It was a busy weekend, but a blessed weekend.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by our table and asked questions and took information. If you have any other questions please post them in the comments or send us an email at olwazzi@yahoo.com.

Thanks again and check back tomorrow for prayer updates.
