Renovation: Happy Birthday and Goodbye....

 How is that, to come to Uganda to celebrate your 65 th Birthday!!! Gosse, (here on the picture) came together with the team to renovate Amecet home! How special is that!!!!
 There was a cake with 65 on it and we had a old fashion, very Dutch "lang zal hij leven" song for him and he had to stand on his chair!!

The team counts 12 people and yesterday we said goodbye to 5 of them! They had to go back to jobs and families in the Netherlands! We are so grateful for all the hard work they have done! A special meal we gave them as a thank you (sponsored by the Figurant).  Everybody enjoyed the meal and there was lots of fellowhip and swallowship!!
 After the meal we had our traditional singing and dancing, it was quite a happening! The next morning (today) they stepped in the car which took them to Entebbe airport and they will fly back to a cold and rainy Holland!!
