Village Notes
Ida went to review all the lessons covered and to her surprise, Ruth Mukaya asked to do the review. Every one was attentive and eager to see and hear of the new professor. She started with lesson two that touched her so much. "Jesus Lord of every thing " Ruth used a story of woman who bled for 12 years, but only trusted God to heal her. The faith that she had was incredible, she believed that by only touching Jesus garment will be enough! But most of us want to put our fingers in holes of nails in Jesus palms. Ruth continued with lesson 3 which is "God's Love " she used a story of the lost son just as Ida uses it. And with lesson four " Loving others " she used her own story when some missionary helped her with money for surgery. She encouraged the community to always love others including those they think don't deserve the love. Ruth said that she had a miscarriage and was taken to witch doctors instead of medical doctors. It resulted into something terrible that needed surgery as soon as possible. All the money,goats and chicken were all gone. The situation worsened and she was referred to Jinja main hospital where this missionary found her and paid all what was needed. She encouraged everyone to show others love not expecting anything in return. The missionary who helped me didn't want to be disclosed. May God bless him and his family wherever they are. Time was going and Ida asked her to stop but she did great. Ida reviewed the health lessons like burns,hygiene and sanitation, Nutrition and Diet. Ruth also asked Ida to help her and compile the lessons such that she will be going to the neighborhood to teach these lessons. Ida is phasing out but will be visiting once in three or four months.
