The year 2020 marks the first full year in which we will be your Patrons and we are very excited about this. I first hear about Kitega in 2011 when Daudi came to Scotland and spoke at the International Christian College about the work of Kitega and I knew God was telling me to go and visit. Little did I know that this would completely change my life? I am so excited that my whole family is involved and invested in the work of Kitega and the people of the community.
2020 is a busy year for Kitega with hopefully the completion of the Umoja centre which will be a great asset for the community, and we pray for the work that needs to happen so that this will be ready to use soon. We thank God for bringing Derrick to the centre to teach sign language and give these deaf children a voice and a means to be able to communicate with others. It was brilliant to see the photos from the Deaf Christmas and that will be an experience I’m sure those children will never forget. VICOBA is ever expanding and making the lives of so many community members better than before. Scotland could really benefit from something like VICOBA and we pray for the continued work of the VICOBA groups and the people involved, and yet to be involved.
There are so many elements of Kitega and so many people who are being blessed by the work: the disabled children; the children of Katungulu PS; the prisoners as part of prison ministry; the local communities and the volunteers who come from worldwide, but take part of Kitega back home in their hearts and heads.
I know from working in a school here, which it can sometimes be a bit discouraging when you plan to do something and it doesn’t turned out like you had hoped or doesn’t happen in your time frame. I hope you never feel like that at Kitega as we are so pleased with the progress of the centre and pray for all the future developments. “But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.” 2 Chronicles 15:7.
