38 children graduated from Harmony Pre-school!

Today was the big day, the graduation of our Harmony Pre-school. They have been practising songs, dances and a poem for weeks, and finally the day was there!
For me, personally, was it also special, because Catherine, my youngest daughter, was among them. She had been singing and rehearsing at home, but today, she had a stomach ache and only wanted to sit on my lap.. But when it was time to put on the special graduation gown, the stomach pain disappeared!!
 38 children, excited to go to primary school after the holidays...

 A dance was performed..
 And one by one they were called to the front to receive their certificate, from Steven Orem, the YWAM Soroti director.
 After that the cutting of the cake. Somewhere in the middle is a beautiful graduation cake, every body wanted to cut with the knife, but the teacher kept an eye on it!
 We closed the ceremony with a meal, the children were the first to be served..

38 children at the beginning of their career.. I pray that God will protect them for too much pain and disappointment, I pray that God protects their dreams and wishes. I pray that God will keep them happy and positive, so that they can be people in the community who will make a difference!
