Notes From the Chairman – March 2017
As we settle back into life in the UK after a hugely successful trip to the Fountain of Peace Project in Kyenjojo, all of us at FOP want to say a huge thank you to all our supporters for your prayerful and practical support, not only for health and safety on the trip but also for all the clothes and toys etc which we were able to take.
There were many challenges that faced us, not least the urgent need to complete the 1st phase of the new nursery and primary school buildings to replace the existing structures ravaged by termites. There was the urgent requirement to purchase a further chunk of land in order to secure the remainder; the discovery that our school staff were voluntarily taking home less than their due because of lack of funding, along with the need to purchase equipment to complete agricultural and building projects. Amazingly, the funds for all these needs were provided within days of our return home. We praise God for His never-failing faithfulness.
It was a joy, also, to meet Scovia, who is our new(ish!) senior member of staff, working with our Project Manager (William), Babies Home Manager (Sarah) and Housemother (Florence). Pray for them that their deep love for the Lord will really influence our children and for the nannies also that they may be encouraged as they serve God.
Please do continue to pray for us all that we, as a Board of Trustees, learn God’s will in the way forward, especially as we now enter a new phase of development for the project. The children are rapidly growing up and the challenges increase! Thank you again for all your support.
