The 1st Ladies visit


July 7th was New Hope Uganda’s annual Thanksgiving and what a special day it was.  The first lady of Uganda, Janet Museveni came for the event.  It was a day where we gave thanks to the Lord for all he has done for, to, and through New Hope over the years.  There were many memories shared as Mrs. Museveni came for the very same event 20 years ago and much has changed since then.

The day was filled with excitement for the kids as you can see in the above picture.

I was able to have some good conversations with her personal assistant, the lady in black and gold in the middle of the below picture.  Mrs Museveni is sending some street children from a transitional children’s home that she is in charge of, to camp at the end of this month.  We are quite excited for this and are busy getting prepared for their arrival.  As I spoke with her assistant I even had the chance to invite her out to the camp.  I don’t know whether they will be able to come but I am hopeful that some day they will visit us.  We will see what happens in the future.
