We are coming home for a leave of 4 months from early July.

Hopefully we will catch up with many of you over those 4 months and we look forward to seeing friends and family and visiting our link churches over that time.

Ugandan Hospitality

Recently we had a great evening with a friend from our church…

As we chatted we realised why he had so many young children at his house. AIDS has claimed many lives in Uganda and Samuel’s family is no exception. Some of his children have died leaving the grandchildren for Samuel and his wife to look after.

A Day in the Life Of...

Dear Friends,

We thought you might like to see a short video of the work going on at Kiwoko. The video was taken by Kate who visited Kiwoko recently and has made her video available on You Tube. Here is the link and hope you enjoy seeing a bit of life here at Kiwoko.

God bless,

Ken & Judith

Happy New Year

A quick note to wish you all a Happy New Year and hope that you all enjoyed your time at Christmas.

We trust that all those resolutions for 2008 are going strong and will continue to do so throughout the next 12 months and beyond! (is that ever the case?). Anyway here’s an update on our last post. It looks like Ken will not be doing the 2008 Belfast marathon after all – there goes one New Years resolution. Due to changes in our home leave we will not be home in May and so for Ken that’s off!

How ever the good news (bad news for Ken!) is that we are home in time for the Dublin marathon and so it looks like on the 27th October we will be in Dublin supporting and laughing at Ken (That’s Judith will be laughing anyway)

God bless you in 2008

You Heard it Here First

Personally (Ken here) I blame Niall Manogue.

Niall recently left Kiwoko to take up the post of Regional Mission Partner with CMS Ireland. While Niall was at Kiwoko we would run together to unwind from a day in the office. On one of these runs Niall challenged me to run the Belfast marathon – thinking that he was not serious I said I would if he would. That was me thinking of course that Niall would not be so – what’s the word – foolish.Anyway it seems that he is and so we have committed ourselves to running the Belfast marathon on May Day 2008 in Belfast.

Life's Hard

Life’s not very easy anywhere but the harshness of life here in rural Uganda was brought home to us very strongly recently.

Audette and Fiona were visiting Kiwoko on behalf of ISIS – a charitable foundation which Audette founded some years ago with a friend. ISIS support our baby intensive care unit and we went out to visit a mother and child who had spent some time on the unit. This was meant to be a happy visit – the baby had come onto the unit weighing just 700 grammes and the staff had seen him through to a weight of about 2 kg. Victor as he was named on the unit had then gone home, with his mother due to bring him back for follow up.
