I have not seen these small kids faces light up with great Joy like they were yesterday. I came carrying the balls and found them being addressed by one staff teacher. But the moment they saw me coming with the balls they started clapping. I had to ask the teacher on duty to allow them play with the balls before they attend classes. </li></ul><ul><li>At Jubilee school we believe God is answering our prayers and wiping away our tears. We have sent some sample of balls the kids have been using here to your school too. Mr. David is coming with some school photos we took though some kids stayed home as it was a Public holiday here. </li></ul><ul><li>Words cant really express how happy we are. Our staff too have been encouraged to stay with us. You cant really know how your school being a sister school to Jubilee has increased the morale of teachers here. Am sure we are going to be getting the best teachers in the region. </li></ul><ul><li>Our staff wants you and some teachers to come and visit us when its convenient for you. Please when coming plan to bring some kids if possible. </li></ul><ul><li>Thank you for my American foot ball, I have never played foot ball but its high time I did. </li></ul><ul><li>Please thank you for Loving the forgotten and left out children of Africa. </li></ul><ul><li>May God bless your school and the whole community that Loves us here. </li></ul><ul><li>Be blessed. </li></ul><ul><li>(Robert Luvunia) </li></ul>
