Dedication of our New Children’s Home in Uganda

02/12/08

Last month, COTN founder, Chris Clark and a US Vision Team consisting of COTN–USA staff and individuals interested in partnering with us were honored as special guests at the official dedication of our first children’s home in Lira, Uganda. This home, which provides full-time care to our first twenty-six orphans (ages 4–15) is the first of hopefully many COTN children’s homes in Uganda. The dedication celebration opened with a special performance by our children which included song, dance, and a memorable theatrical performance depicting the story of how they came to COTN. The celebration was highlighted by prayer and devotions from our children. Among the special guests were COTN–UG staff and board members, community leaders, and neighboring families. Please continue to pray for our staff and these children as they settle into their new home and surrounding community. The children just recently started school, which is a first-time experience for many of them.
