Bishop Ivan’s visit June 2018

 

Could you be part of Bishop Ivan’s visit?

We now have a programme in place for Ivan’s visit in June

and we have spaces for him to visit supporters for a potential talk,

meal or a social visit.

Are you part of a group that would like to have Bishop Ivan visit you

to talk more about his work in Matugga? Would you be interested in

hosting him for an evening with a meal or potentially taking him for an

afternoon of relaxing or visiting local sites?

 

There are spaces available within the programme between

the 7th and 25th June, and they are mainly in the afternoon and

evenings.

 

If you would like to offer a time for Ivan to visit, then please send

an e-mail to giveachildahope@gmail.com and let us know.

 

A quick reminder to supporters who exchange letters with champions,

the collection date is the 18th June.

Thank You.

Christmas news from Matugga!

Following a wonderful fun fundraising afternoon tea at St Johns in early December, Debbie Walker set out on the 21st Dec to celebrate a very special Christmas with Bishop Ivan, Madam Allen (his wife) and other members of the Lugoloobi household.

There was a wonderful Christmas atmosphere with a packed house which included several of the Champions who were staying with the family over the school holidays. (Most champions return home to extended family during the holidays ,but there remain a small number who have no one to support them during this period).

The money raised from the fundraising afternoon tea helped support these champions during the Christmas holiday period.  Shirts, toys and and other much needed clothing were received with huge appreciation on Christmas day along with a lovely meal. 

It was a truly memorable Christmas with much love, laughter and excitement. I felt very blessed and privileged to have been part of such a loving family.
