Concluded supervision of the four students of Archbishop Janani Luwum assigned to me. Today met Ocen James at Lakwana parish under Rev. Lucy Auma, and then Ogweng Richard at Awoo Parish under Rev. Komakech Alfred. They have all contributed positively in many areas. Lakwana had average church attendance of 75 christians before James went there and now they have average of 140 Christians, Sunday offertory still remains very low, the first month at Lakwana the collection was 28, 400 (0ctober), 39, 600 (November) and this December the total monthly Sunday offertory is 46,950, Uganda shillings. on Christmas the collection was 8,300 and today they collected just 10,800 Uganda shillings. They gave envelopes to Christians for them to put their Christmas gifts and they are yet to receive them back. James left their home in Awere and came to Lakwana together with his wife and three of their children. Today he was given farewell gifts which included, simsim, beans, potatoes, .... Honestly we still have a lot of work to do inorder for the church to be self supporting, self propagating and self governing. In Awoo, I met Richard who has also camped here for three months and concluding in three days. The Church in Awoo is now at roofing stage with mainly local contributions, one of their Christian based in Kampala, came for the Christmas celebration, today donated 1 million for buying Iron sheets for the Church, while Lakwana is still at window level. I get puzzle when it come to the welfare of these men and women who have devoted their lives to serve God, leaving their land, families, surely they are called by God. Both Awoo and Lakwana are praying in classrooms and in Lakwana the vestry was in front of the Head-teacher's office. My Son Michael Akena joined the Adungu Choir at Lakwana and was eager to learn how to play the adungu.
