Back, back, back!!

It's been a while since I last posted on here. I have been really sick, just when I though I was better it would hit again. My dad thought I had swine flu(which I don't) I would like to appologize for any e-mail I havn't responded to in a timely matter, as I usually check my e-mails daily(okay sometimes hourly, it's bad!) but I just had no energy to even turn on the computer at times. On top of it, I had a final math exam to study for. I am BAD in math, no matter how hard and how long I study I always find myself not making the bar or just passing. It gets so fustrating at times. If I did not pass this exam though, I would not be eligible for college in September. I would have to redo the class- in June, right when I planned to be in Uganda. I am very happy to say that I passed, with an 88%! Uganda here I come.

Over the past week I have received numerouse donations of books, bathing suits, school supplies, etc etc etc! This is absolutely amazing. I receive e-mails from Hellen weekly about children in need. Children found on the streets, children sick with no hope of getting better. All the donations will not only bring a smile to a child's face but I hope it will bring them hope. It will let them know that someone far away cares enough that they have a book in their hands to read, a pair of clean underwear to wear, a teddy bear to cuddle when they sleep at night.

If you would like to send anything to your sponsor child, please e-mail me. There is still a bit of room left to carry on some more donations. Everything will have to arrive before June 16th.

So glad you are feeling better. I sent 2 more packages of books right before I left!
Just not sure where to go next with Adongo Kate and setting her family up with a business. Is it possible to get more info about the family from Helen, particularly the aunt's name and basic details like that. I will get started on fundraising when I get home from the DR. I really would love to get some money going in towards this to get it started. Should I send it all at once or send it in chunks? No need to let me know right away, I know you are a bit behind from being sick. We can just talk about it when you are caught up!

Hello Kate, I'm glad you are back and that you have passed your math exam! This is great news!

Hope to hear some more news from you soon! :)

Hey Kate, thanks again for taking our box of kits to Uganda. I am going to a book sale tomorrow so I'll see what I can come up with for your library.

What language do the kids speak/ what language are they taught in school?
