Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this : to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world. -James 1:27

THEY ARE FINISHED!! Thanks for all of your prayers.

We also held a special prayer session to give words of encouragement and advice AND to lift them up before the Giver of all knowledge, wisdom, and remembrance.

They set off early each morning to walk to a neighboring school that has a "UNEB" number. We are praying that next year our school will be officially registered. After two days of two exams each, they have completed their primary school education.

Of course kids have to eat, so Betty and I brought them food, which allowed for a much needed brain rest :)
They also had some time to laugh and be silly.

And all great accomplishments are worthy to be celebrated. After doing a simple survey as to what they would like to do during their extended holiday, swimming won, hands down.

We were blessed to have Mr. Rob and Auntie Cathy (the GICF president and his wife) in Mbale to celebrate with us.

And no African celebration is complete without a meal.

Then we did some more swimming!

All in all we had a blast and are looking forward to "out of the ordinary" activities during this long holiday. Result will be announced in January some time. Again, thanks for praying!
