Brendan and Antoine with the 9 people who received a goat today

Today in the village of Muyange we presented 9 goats to members of our congregation. Funds were donated by friends of the Takeley Christian School in the UK. All who received goats today are members of farming projects that are run by 3 of our home groups. The last few harvests have not been great due to rain failure so the goats are compensating greatly for the poor harvests. We are using some of the 'Send a Cow' rules for example the first female kid born must be passed on the another person. There are 2 people waiting in line for each goat to deliver and it is also their responsibility to see that the animal is well cared for. 2 of the goats are already pregnant. Each recipient signed a contract laying out the rules. Thanks to all our friends in and around the Takeley area who made this possible and blessed so many this Christmas.
