Photos from Your Child's Center Day in Uganda

08/31/17

Thank you for giving to send your sponsored child to camp! COTN–Uganda doesn’t hold its “summer” camps until December, during the school break. We will share photos and stories from those camps as soon as they are available.

 

But what your child does experience during the summer is COTN–Uganda's Center Day. During Center Day, the community is invited to the COTN campus, and the COTN staff and children present various skits, speeches, and demonstrations.


Uganda Center Day
Speakers included James Okalo (COTN–Uganda's country director and pastor at Truth Fountain Evangelical Church in Lira, Uganda), Brandon Beard (COTN board member and pastor at Compass Church in Texas), and Kristen Marks (COTN's Uganda liaison).


Hanna Abwot speaking
Hanna Abwot, one of the children from COTN’s Children Homes, shared about COTN–Uganda and its impact.


Potato sack race
Sack races and other games were held. (Even Pastor Brandon Beard gave it his best shot.)


COTN nurses speak to parents

Even more dancing
                                  Did we mention that there was a lot of dancing?


Even if you couldn’t attend, we hope you know that you are a part of this joy. Your faithful support makes activities like this possible. Thank you for everything you do for the children and for being a part of our COTN family!
