The menu at Starlight Hotel is proving monotonous, omletts for lunch and dinner and boiled egg for breakfast is safe food but not very inspiring, we have decided to take a chance on the pork stew and rice tonight!!!
45 minutes drive from Matendo is a small Vocational Training Centre which was the vision of Pastor James Joloba Adyeri. Pastor James has been entrusted by the Bishop with oversight of Matendo.
This training centre started in 1986 teaching carpentry under a tree. Today, whilst still small it is a true inspiration. We spent the morning discussing with Pastor James the challenges he had faced, most of which we are facing at Matendo, and how they had been overcome. Many ideas were floated as he shared his wealth of knowledge. After a tour of his VTC and a traditional meal at his home (beef stew and rice!!) we headed back feeling a little more optimistic but still apprehensive, compared to these people we have so little faith in God’s power to work miracles.
A late night as we wrote up reports, still no internet for the blog we headed to bed. A long day tomorrow as we travel to Masaka.
