Last year I was doing a talk in Ingham, in far north Queensland. In the audience there was a retired church minister called Nino Marolla. Nino asked me if I could help set up a bakery at an orphanage in Uganda. They had a building with a wood-fired oven which he believed would make a good bakery.
He said it needs a front door. I said it also needs electricity. He said, “So you’ll do it?” Me and my big mouth. So I’m off to Uganda in April. My two good mates Ralph and Graham are coming as well. The three of us have managed to help the nuns in East Timor with their bakery. Let’s hope we have some success in Uganda.
Nino is now in the process of getting a front door and electricity connected. We’re looking forward to visiting Uganda. My big hope is that we can help the orphanage. Nino wants to have the bakery making money to help run the orphanage, plus give people skills that they can use to better their lives.
