Friends of Martin,
Many of you have come to know and love our Ugandan friend, Martin. He has driven many of our teams to and from the airport, out to the village and everywhere in between. He seems to always be laughing or answering all our Mizungu questions. You may or may not know that he is in charge of the farms for True Vine Ministries that help generate income and feed the children at Victor's school. Martin has been continuing his university education and spent a year in Israel studying new agricultural techniques.
Martin has been chosen as a select few to study in Australia for the next 2 years. As part of the program, his tuition, room and board is paid for but he has to raise funds for his airfare. He has saved enough to put $500 towards the cost but time is running out. The first group leaves just next month and the last group is due to leave in September. He needs $2700 to complete the fee. That's 27 of us giving $100 or 54 of us giving $50.
An exciting part of helping Martin learn in Australia?
He has agreed that upon his return to Uganda, he will help teach our Genda Uganda families how to farm more efficiently and with the goal of bigger yields of crops. This will help lead our families to better food resources for themselves but also to sell at market to buy more livestock or pay school fees for children. And it is an exciting opportunity for Martin to share the gift God has given him.
