Paul & Helen

Recently, tragedy occurred on the Church of Uganda compound where we live. Two young boys – aged 4 and 7, orphans who were being raised and cared for by various people on our compound and in the church community – drowned in a recently dug, very deep, water pit in an obscure part of the compound. The water pit looked about half a metre deep, when it was actually closer to 4-5 metres deep. The boys didn’t know that, and they couldn’t swim. Their deaths have struck at the heart of the people who knew and loved them. We are sad.” Please pray for Paul and Helen; Ruth Mahood, who was involved in trying to rescue the boys; and particularly Josephine (the boys’ carer) and her family, along with the rest of the community; as they grieve.
