We celebrate the good Lord who never stops sustaining us. After two years of lockdown, we are grateful to God who has kept us. We have now come as children of God who have started a new semester because of God’s grace. We have every reason to rise & shine.
This semester we received a new group of Uganda Studies Programme. We shall have a semester-long fellowship & build life-long relationships. We bless the Lord for them.
We also acknowledge our alumni as a precious gem that is proof of God’s timeless greatness. They have come back as mentors, lecturers and guests, & we love learning from them. In this issue, we introduce them to our readers; we show them off as proof that we too can make it. Thank you alumni for inspiring us.

Attendees introduced themselves by mentioning their names, course of study and things they like to do; Joshua Morris for example told us about his passion for rapping while Becky Mutesi talked about her love for singing.
I had not anticipated that robbers would grab my backpack (it had the 3.5 Million Shillings and a laptop and a phone and my personal documents), and run away with them.
