Greetings to you all!

Try to imagine how happy we all are to wake up to a cloudy sky and drizzling rain!

We are delighted with our dull skies; and hopefully the rain will continue to fall! Over recent weeks my head has felt the fiery sun and my eyes have been dazzled by its blinding hot rays. It is the rainy season and as in the rest of the world, global warming is a reality and its being felt most by the poor farmers, a lot of whose maize has dried up for lack of rain. That means the basic ingredient for making porridge and ‘ugali’ their breakfast and dinner meals will be very expensive. We now hope and pray for continued rain which would assure us of a good rice crop.

I promised you I would write soon after getting the Form IV results. We are very happy with our four boys, two of whom got very good Grade 11s and the other two got very good grade 111s. so now they await places in A-Level schools, and will start FV in July. At the moment three of our boys are in OLA Vocational Training Centre, Bugisi, doing basic computer studies for two months and a fourth is working in Dar as Salaam.

From this year on we have a mixture of boys and girls. I hope the girls will be as ambitious as the boys! We have just taken on another girl in F111. She got ten A’s in her F11 exam, the first ever in the school. She has to leave us because of fees – she is ridden with arthritis and all the farming money goes into her hospital bills – no free medical care here. Luckily our school matron knows the situation and told me so Beatrice has returned to her studies.

Thanks to all of you, Our Mission helpers.

At the moment rain is dancing on our galvanized roofing and it’s music to the ears.

God’s blessing on you all. Sr. Anne Cahill.
