The Start of a School

Brad was in Uganda to help start building a school, but our community is not just building a school. We’re starting a school. God is using small town Nebraska to start and maintain a boarding school in Uganda.

The challenges of that are more than we know, but it is clearly an opportunity for God to show HE IS ABLE. He has already shown up, and I know He will continue to do so.

Following are a sequence of pictures of the start of the building. Notice the fence topped with barbed wire. It is there to keep thieves out and surrounds the five acres of property purchased for the school.


How it looked when Brad and James arrived

The kids even helped with covering the ground with these big rocks.

Then they crushed the large rocks.


Cement Mixing. The sun was clearly too bright there for our little camera.


Plastic went on top of the rocks and cement on top of that

Why a school? I’ll tell you as much as I can about that next time.
