Computer Crash

This last week we had our hard drive crash on us. After 6 days of working on it and many hours we finally were able to get a new hard drive and get the computer up and running again.
We lost some files and some programs, but all in all it is in tact. If anyone has emailed us at david@orphanchildrenfund.com or jamie@ or Info@ the same address or any of the @orphanchildrenrescue's then we haven't gotten your emails. We still are having issues with outlook, so please use the orphanchildrenfund@gmail address.
We have been crazy busy getting the new house ready to move in as well as packing the old one up. It is coming along and we are still shooting for a August 15th move in date. We might have a day or two down when we move with the computers, so don't be alarmed if you don't hear from us at that time for a day or so.
School is starting up in the States in the next few weeks. Here we are just finishing up a term. The upper grades (1-6) at our school are taking their exams. We paid for 59 orphans to be able to take their exams at our school in Bakka. They have sitting fee's here in Uganda and if they can't afford the fees then they don't pass that grade and have to repeat it. We still have 157 students that do not have sponsors for school fees. As you are getting your kids ready for school this fall think about sponsoring a student here. $30.00 a month covers food, school fees, uniforms, books, test fees, and medical insurance.
Just a reminder.... we will be coming back to the States for the holidays in Nov. and Dec. Most of our time will be in Texas, Oklahoma, Minnesota and New York. We are looking forward to seeing friends and family and celebrating the season. It will also be a nice time to relax a bit.
