Wondering why our flyer boys are actually boys and girls?
As a fundraiser for the Rupert’s Land Orphan Fund, the kids of St. John’s Sunday School and their friends were out delivering our Easter flyers this spring. The money we saved on sending the Easter Invitations through the mail was donated on their behalf to help send an orphan to school for an entire year.
One in every seven children in Uganda is an orphan. Our sister group of churches, the Diocese of Buganda is helping the orphans of Uganda by providing for their school fees. Basic tuition is paid for by the government up to grade seven, but the additional costs for uniforms, lunches, examinations, school supplies and building fund are not provided. Paying these fees ensures that the orphans will be able to attend school and reduces the financial burden on the extended families caring for them. Money raised through the Rupert’s Land Orphan Fund goes directly to this effort.
Thanks to all the volunteers: our Sunday School children and their friends, their teacher, Gary and the parent volunteers who came out to lend a hand, as well as the organizers and Bud Oliver from the Rupert’s Land Orphan Fund whose important ministry helps us help others. A very special thanks to the Teakles who had the delivery teams over to their house for brownies and ice cream!
