This has been a dream of ours for the children for many years, and we appreciate the support that so many of you have provided. Construction of the convent is progressing very quickly under the watchful eye of Fr. Charles and skilled local builders who are lovingly working to build a suitable home for our future Sisters, We will soon be talking with the Mothers Superior for several orders of African nuns about having several Sisters join our mission once the Convent is completed. The Sisters will be a tremendous addition to our ministry and will help to restore even more the sense of family for these children who have lost so much. As construction progresses and decisions are made on which order of nuns will join us, we will continue to update you and include lots of pictures!
The picture above shows the front of the convent prior to the installation of the roof trusses. Local builders and materials are utilized to construct the building at the Home of the Holy Angels. The picture to the right shows the roof trusses starting to be installed. Very soon, the structure will be ‘dried in’ and interior work will be able to get started. All of the photos showing the progress of the construction of the convent are sent to us directly from Fr. Charles. Below is another angle showing the progress that is being made installing the roof. This is a very exciting time for the Home of the Holy Angels and none of it would have been possible without your prayers and financial support.
Convent Update May 2018
Thanks to your prayers and donations, and skill of local builders, the convent roof has been completed! The following pictures show the structure being fully ‘dried in’ and construction inside is now underway. Local building materials and construction techniques are utilized, thereby allowing local workers to also participate in helping Fr. Charles bring peace and hope to the orphaned children in Kibale.
Please keep the children of the Home of Holy Angels in your prayers as we continue to build towards the day when the convent is completed. It’s not too late to get involved!
