Goes/Soroti update..

This blog is written in Holland, I am on a vacation, together with my four girls, Mary, Sarah, Helen and Catherine. We enjoy the rest, and I specially enjoy not having so many responsibilities. The weather is not very good, it is cold and rainy. Helen is still praying for snow....
Helen and Catherine are doing the dishes... The girls make their own schedule!!

We have a big place, Catherine can even ride the little bicycle in the living room!
 Today there was a Father Christmas run in the town of Goes. A good excuse to go out and .watch it. We were lucky that it was not raining.

So Helen and Catherine enjoyed a ride in a little train
I have some contacts with Soroti. Everything is going well, there are no sick children. So that is good news. One of the two nurses went home, because her brother had died. She planns to come back this week. Petra is still there. I heard that the mother of one of our baby´s came in the middle of the night and wanted to climb our gate. The security guard had to scare her away. The baby is resettled in the village with the family , the mother has a mental problem and not able to look after her child. It is sad, but to protect the child was this neccesary. Then I heard that they  found a boy of 6 years old, under the bus which had come from Moroto, (some hours North of Soroti), he wanted to go to Kampala, to live on the streets. He is now in Amecet and the probation office will resttle him back in Moroto. I pray they will have a quiet and peaceful Christmas!
