Here is a lovely photo of Allen`s family which I took last year in August when I visited their home.
Allen has been staying with us full time this year as we were concerned about her lack of weight gain and her general state of health. Even after she came to live with us, she continued to have daily ‘explosions’, a very swollen stomach, regular fevers and other symptoms. We took her to see a Doctor in Kampala and she was diagnosed with TB which she was then given medicine for.
Since then, she has gained 4kg and is blossoming! She can now drink independently and is learning to feed herself with a spoon. When I look at her chubby thighs I praise God for the amazing miracle he has done and is continuing to do in her life J

Life recently has been the usual crazy mixture of caring for the children who stay with us on site (Hassan, Carol, Allen, Kakulu...and the big man Kakande,) visiting or taking children to various hospitals, holding our community outreach meetings, attending many meetings (not my favourite job!), shopping for supplies in Kampala, attending burials, covering staff who are attending burials, teaching class, having David family over for movies, having language lessons etc.etc.
|A Squash and a squeeze at our Community Outreach|
Meet some of the ‘new recruits’ who have begun attending our community outreach sessions:

|The Living Room|
|The Mistress of the House.....BUBBLY THE BLACK LAB|
|A busy & messy living area!|
|The Kitchen with it`s concrete worktops. It is awaiting some cupboard doors and shelves but is so lovely and spacious!|
|My most frequent visitor, often referred to as Auntie Tate`s body guard is Jonnie. Here he is with dear Dorcas who comes to play every Saturday.|
|The Store Room which is currently home to a small rat which I hope and pray the boys will catch soon!|
|Our Spare Room ready for visitors (and for our new Special Needs Helper to stay in from September.)|
Bubbly being given a bath by Judah, Jonnie, Dorcas and Kiwewa.
May the weather warm up before then!
