Our final Sunday

The Sunday service a NVI was handed over to the UgandAid team, and we set a very different tone to all the African singing and dancing that went before us. Our small but splendid choir lead  songs of worship, and we blew them away with our ‘skit’(drama) which acted out the parable of the sower. This spectacle involved nearly all the team and a large number of balloons! Our final song ‘bind us together Lord’ where over 100 people held hands and sang was extremely emotional. After the service we officially  handed over the business studies room and also had an official opening of Yunusu’s  shoe workshop. As well as his wife Yunusu’s  parents were present, a massive feat as they are old and extremely frail.  The whole family were totally bowled over – another emotional moment.

And we had a rather splendid cake at the celebratory meal afterwards!


A couple of days later Yunusu moved into his workshop, and welcomed his first customers – the beam on his face hardly left him for a moment – what a dream come true for this young man


 And so home.....

Monday morning was time for hugs and tears and the long journey home  - thank you God for a wonderful two weeks.
