Thanks sister Evelyn Smith for your comment, God bless you. You are welcome to Lui and may Him grade you safe journey to Lui. Lui is good, every where is green and bush, every one is cultivating. I can also see you have very good shadow behind you, thank you for that. Yesterday we were in meeting, about Lui Hospital Agricultural Farm, with Canon Baringwa, Pastor Noel, Hospital Administrator & Accountant, and Dr.Legesse Kennenni to see how we can raise funds for supporting the Hospital. Dr Legesse is an Agricultural Doctor, and he has agreed to us professional in this project with a Tractor left by Samaritan Purse to the Hospital.
