Uganda ceremony

On June 16th the officials of Friends of Orphans had a huge ceremony to celebrate the supplies we brought to the Anthony Brown Comprehensive School. There was much singing and dancing, speeches from various officials and a speech from me. The Hesston Mennonite Church sent with us a prayer shawl and a cup. Both items were made by members of the church and represent our connection and interest to commune with the people at the school. The photo shows me presenting the items toRicky Richard at this outdoor event.
Aftterwards we presented the supplies to them on behalf of Hesston Mennonite Church and committed to remember them in our prayers. We then enjoyed eating goat meat and rice This food is eaten and served when an honored guest arrives.
