Children in Mali Saba

My family is getting ready to leave for Soroti Uganda where they will be able to hold their new grand baby girl for the first time. They will be busy with mission work for the next month. I will be busy taking care of the Texas stuff while they are gone. Here is a blog from 2012. I may be doing some re-runs for a while since I won’t have much time on my hands.

There is a little village close to the Children’s Rescue Centre called Mali Saba, that has a few shops, churches, and houses. It is more like a big circle of open space with all the business around the outside. There were big trucks filled with corn that was being dried and cleaned.

There were huge tarps laid out on the ground and the truck was loaded with corn that was thrown out on the tarps to dry. They would keep scraping it up in large buckets and throw it in the air to wind it. Corn (maize) flour is what most of the diet consists of.

There were a lot of children there and here are some of their pictures.

This was one of the little boys, all of the children look older in the pictures than they really were. This one was probably three years old.

All I said was ‘wave’ and they all waved at me for this picture. I was always surprised at how many people there were everywhere we went and there were so many children. These had just come from Sunday School Class.

If we stopped to visit with them, they were shy at first because we were those strange looking people, but soon there would be a bunch of them crowding around. After we took one picture and they saw themselves on the camera screen, they all wanted to be in the pictures.

one of the children took this picture, not a great idea, then everyone wanted to try their hand at it~

This boy was wearing Crocks. There were a lot of Crocks everywhere we went, the company must have sent thousands of the shoes to them. They worked great~

here are four friends walking together.

Lisa in front of the church. Pastor Martin Manside held a wonderful and inspiring service. The music was exciting and loud.

Martin Manside’s church was located here so we spent some time in this place.
