News from Uganda: a baby is born!

e now have a couple of pictures to post along with this announcement… On Friday June 5 Lola Mugabi gave birth to a baby boy, named Oren Subi Mugabi.  He was 19 and a half inches long, and weighed in at 6 pounds, two ounces.  The delivery was not an easy one, but both mom and baby are now doing well. oren-mommy Congratulations to Lola and to Roger, as they begin a whole new phase of life together as parents.

Lola (who was one of the nine people at the very first gathering of saint benedict’s table, way back in 2004) and her husband Roger are the driving force behind the HOME Uganda project, which provides housing and support for teen-aged orphans as they seek to complete their education.

oren-suubi-eidse-mugabiWe also just received word that the paperwork has been cleared to allow Roger to accompany Lola and Oren on a summer visit home to Manitoba, where they’ll be able to connect with people and get a bit of respite from the steady work of their shared ministry.  Details and dates of the time with us will be posted here in the coming weeks.

    emailed shortly before the baby’s arrival. We know Roger well from a previous trip to Uganda.
    We are now living on Gabriola Isl., B.C. but hope we can make it to Wpg. to see them all.
