Repentance, jiggers and boarding life.....

The third day started with looking into repentance and forgiveness and after that we got a message on Career advice. The main issue what was brought in was: take the opportunity of getting educated and don't give up. We had a senior student journalism teaching us and he could give his personal story how he struggled for school fees and refused to give up. It was a good teaching, which the children need to hear, because nothing comes easy for them too!
Then Simon took over with a lesson on personal Hygiene. How important this is, also for their health. It resulted later into a session removing jiggers from the feet of some children!
A painful operation!

Elias spoke on the challenges of life in a boarding school, which is also very relevant to several of the older children.
This are the children among the group who are in senior school and in boarding. They have a lot of challenges, boarding life is not easy. But they all have dreams and they were so encouraged to pursue them!
In the afternoon Isaiah (YWAM Soroti staff) spoke about adolescence and the difficulties it brings sometimes. After that we gave the children free time to talk, listen to music, play football and hang around.
 Tea break among friends.....
 or just alone or talking things over with one.
And there are the dishes to be done.......
