Following on from the item in the last magazine, we have received letters from some of the other children we support through the African Child Trust, and these letters are reproduced here. You can read more about our support of the African Child Trust in the Christmas 2020 issue of St George’s News, page 11. If you would like to help contribute towards the cost of funding the Education of these children in Africa, please contact Tony Rice-Oxley.

Dear Mr Tony Rice-Oxley

I greet you in the wonderful name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am Tabulwa Daniel Ugy aged 21 years.  I am so grateful to God that through your support I managed to complete my course of motor Vehicle Maintenance and am proud of you, my sponsors, right now as I am waiting for my results.  I have hope for the future of starting my own garage based on the skills I learnt from school which I lost when my parents passed away.  Life was very hard I grew up in various hands of my relatives, yet they did not have enough money to support my education.  I came to know ACT through the Rev. David Musesagusa.

Thanks for the letter and Christmas card which I received last year in December.  I apologise for taking so long to reply but I was in another district and it was hard to contact me since I don’t have a phone.  When I came back they contacted my aunt.  I thank you too for your prayers that God has enabled us to live despite the challenge of Covid which is claiming so many people’s lives.  We went through a hard time where schools, churches and other organisations were closed.

May the Lord bless you abundantly for the good work you have done for me and others and may the Lord bless the work of your hands so that you get whatever you want.

Best wishes from Tabulura Daniel

Dear Sir/Ma

I hereby write to appreciate you for the assistance you have been rending for me and family. I sincerely appreciate what you have been doing. I want to use this opportunity to say a very big thank you. May God continue to bless you.

How are you coping with Covid 19 over there.  I hope everything is going well with you?

Covid 19 has caused a great deal of damage,  things have not been going well like before    the economies have gone bad. Life is not easy. In our country we are just struggling to survive here. One thing I am happy about is that I am able to attend school on a regular basis.

Looking forward to hear from you soon.  Thank you.

Yous sincerely
