Little Globetrotters Skype with Uganda

This month’s Little Globetrotters had a special surprise…a live visit with missionaries who are currently on the field!  Through the wonders of technology and thanks to a British company that has made wireless access possible in Uganda, our missionary speakers came direct from Uganda.  A cool slide presentation narrated by Tamara and Jeremy Boone made it possible for the kids to both see and hear what life is like in Uganda.  The presentation ended with some shots of Uganda kids singing “Pray for Me” and our kids asking questions.

These missionaries are working in a poverty-stricken area and help with basic life needs and skills as they preach the gospel.  One interesting project Tamara does is helping women make necklaces to sell using extra buttons.  So feel free to collect- and then help us send- your extra buttons to Uganda.  An odd way to share the gospel, certainly, but it helps meet their basic needs.  Enjoy some pictures from our morning:

Friendly, gospel-preaching talking heads.
