REACH TEAM USA
Upcoming Address Change
In an ongoing effort to effectively handle the expansive duties and responsibilities of Rescue African Children (REACH), the financial department of the organization will be moved to Moreno Valley, CA. This move will bring the financial and publication operations to one central location. Moreno Valley is also the “corporate headquarters” for this non-profit corporation.
Beginning with the May 2010 newsletter the return address of the mailing envelope as well as the address on the return envelope will temporarily have a label affixed over the old address. New envelopes will be printed in the next few months.
Correspondence with REACH Team USA may be sent to the new address as of this publication. Email regarding REACH business may also be sent to the new email address provided below.
Our hope is that we will be better able to meet your needs as you REACH-out to the children of Omega School and the pastors of the churches in the surrounding area. Thank you for your understanding, patience, and prayers as this change takes place. We anticipate a smooth transition in the months ahead.
Special thanks go out to REACH volunteer David Fast. David has served as our finance facilitator for the past four and one-half years. He has been instrumental in developing our system of financial records that will continue to meet the needs of REACH for years to come.
David leaves us to pursue a prominent role in Missions with his local church in Texas. He has a heart for missions and we are excited that God is giving David the desire of his heart. David will train a temporary successor to his position with REACH and will also be available as an advisor “for as long as it takes for someone to be come proficient”. THANK YOU, David!
Being dependent on volunteers can cause anxious moments in the life of any organization. However, it is with a profound level of peace that we move forward into a new season for REACH. We trust God to provide USA Team volunteers to meet the void David’s resignation leaves, as well as to expand our base of operations to meet the increased workload created by the expansion of the work in Uganda.
Rev. Fred Tumwebaze expresses his appreciation for all that David has done for the Lord’s work through REACH. Pastor Fred anticipates a continued close personal relationship with David in the years to come.
David will continue to be personally involved with REACH as a sponsor of children and a pastor. Thank you, David, for your time of service and your heart for the people of Uganda and the world.
Back in School
And Doing Fine
Praise and thanks to God are being voiced as the update on the Kalamoya Spillane Benjamin – UG/1008 comes to the USA from Uganda. As reported last month, young Benjamin was struck by a speeding scooter and it was unknown as to how well he would heal—would his vision be impaired?
It is with great joy we report that Benjamin is on the mend! “He is back at school and his vision is good,” reports Pastor Fred Tumwebaze. “Thanks to all who prayed for this boy.”
