TGC Opening

One of the last tasks we were asked to do was organize a grand opening event for the Timothy Girls College with our co-workers in Masaka. This past Saturday we hosted around 350 people consisting of builders, friends, pastors, members of the community and many of our staff from Kibaale. 

Our Executive Director, Ray Sutton, and a few members of the board also made the trip from Canada to see the new project, join in the festivities, and continue to work on plans for the future.

It was a great day; to celebrate years of planning and hard work, as well a good chance for us to say goodbye to a lot of people at one time!

In honor of our Director and his wife the dining hall is officially "Sutton Hall"!!!

After the speeches we had a delicious lunch, ribbon cutting, and tour of the property. We loved to watch the girls as they were showing their families around their new school, they were very proud!

A big thank you to our friend Peter Lorenzen for the great pictures!!
