Update from The Revival Centre April 2020

Update from The Revival Centre Matugga

Greetings and thank you to all our loyal supporters. We hope that you are all keeping safe and well. Your continued support is highly valued, no more so than in these uncertain times.
 
Like many countries, Uganda is now facing big restrictions to try and slow down the spread of Covid-19 with the first cases being reported just over 2 weeks ago.
 
On Friday March 20th the Ugandan Government compulsorily closed all schools and universities for an initial period of 30 days, this was shortly followed by churches and meeting places. Travel restrictions and ‘lockdown’ measures have also been introduced.
 
On Monday 22nd March all the children and staff had left Revival Centre and returned to their homes, apart from those who live on site and 7 or 8 champions who have no safe home environment.  Ivan and Allen have again generously opened up their home to these champions with another staying with one of the school matrons.
 
We were fortunately able to send our monthly gift out just before lock down was initiated, so Ivan was able to pay most of the staff before they went home.
 
On Monday 6th April we managed to send more money to pay the remaining staff and to buy food for the students who are being cared for by Ivan and Allen.
 
We will keep you up to date with further news as we hear more.
 
Please be advised the plans for the June visit have been cancelled along with any fund raising events planned for the next few months.

 
The GACAH team really value your support and prayers for the children and staff at Revival during these difficult times.
 
 
Debbie Walker and Martin Smith
On behalf of the GACAH trustees

Revival News February 2020

View this email in your browser

The Revival Centre enters its 20th year!

The Revival Centre celebrates its 20th year in 2020!

As we go into the 20th year of the beginnings of The Revival Centre we want to share some recent news from the Centre as well as let you know about the exciting celebrations we are planning when Bishop Ivan visits us this year. Keep reading until the end to find out more…..
 

The Champions
At Revival Schools the new school year is just getting underway. Coinciding with this, Madam Allen tells us that the national exam results from the previous year are beginning to be released. The first results for the pupils in their final year at Revival Primary school are in with 8 first grades and 27 second grades, no third grades and no failures! Madam Allen says 
“We are grateful unto God for helping these children. All other odds were beaten to put up such a performance”
We are now waiting for the Examination body to release the Senior 4 (equivalent of our GCSEs) and Senior 6 results (equivalent of our A levels). We will keep you posted! As Madam Allen recently said
We cannot boast about this, if it had not been for your support in all areas of running the school. We are grateful for every support (spiritual, moral and financial)”.

Revival Church – Moves
Revival Church is at the heart of Ivan’s ministry in Matugga, and in June Ivan shared with us his need for help. The church meets in shared premises with the Primary school
, but due to new regulations the church needs to have its own site separate from the schoolIn September the farm at Nagaseke was sold and the proceeds enabled us to purchase a piece of land near to the entrance gate to Revival Centre, and the church are in the process of raising funds to put up a new building for church use only. GACAH would be delighted to be a conduit for any supporters who would like to help Ivan build his church. Please send us an email for more information. (giveachildahope@gmail.com)
 

Gombe Farm
Gombe Farm has experienced challenging times recently. In October, sadly all the chickens were stolen just as they were ready for market. They have been replaced, but the cost of this coupled with the rising cost of feed due to inflation means that the farm is struggling to meet its costs. The aim of the farm project is to help Revival become more sustainable and it has been funded by a group of supporters over the last two years. We can only hope that with hard work and continued support, the farm will recover from this set back. 

EFOD – Progress on the new Maize Mill construction by Engineers for Overseas Development (EFOD)
In 2016 when the trustees visited the site, the field contained dense vegetation, was very steep and the sloping land ended in a ditch close to the main road.  EFOD accepted the challenge of preparing a culvert, then clearing the land and setting foundations for the new grain mill. 
In 2019 the first engineers from EFOD led by Zak Raja (West Midlands branch) arrived at the site to begin the work.  In 2020 the engineers will be
 back with the ambition of completing the build of the mill and handing over the whole site to Bishop Ivan for active service at the end of the summer.
 

2020 – is the 20th anniversary of The Revival Centre!
This year marks Ivan’s 20th visit to us – we have much to be thankful for and we are making plans to mark this with a special event during the June visit. We will be sending out an invite to a party in June, details will follow soon.
Leading up to that we would love to hear from you (giveachildahope@gmail.comwith any ideas that you might have – celebratory or fund raising – we want to be able to raise the funds required to finish the new secondary school block; desks, computers, teaching aids etc. to mark this milestone in our partnership with Ivan and all at Revival Centre.
