The Christmas photos from Uganda are in! And thanks to all of you, the children had a great time celebrating Jesus' birth. Please enjoy these photos and this special message from our Village Partnership Program Coordinator in Uganda, Christopher Odongo:

God is good! The children in Uganda had a colorful Christmas celebration this year, with a wonderful meal, drinks, and great gifts, including school bags and books. 

On behalf of the children, we send our thanks to all the sponsors for blessing the children with these gifts and love.
