A Basic Animation Story Created By My 13-Years Old Son + Update


Animation + Update 

Dear family and friends,

With great joy and deepest admiration, I am sharing with you a few slides of an animation story created by my 13-years old son, Thomas-Dhel, as part of his tech class. It’s a basic animation but captured Thomas’ four years of personal experience in Africa. Thomas’ story includes crowded classrooms with over 90 students, extreme poverty, health condition, a need for quality education and clean water, as well as walking him to school more than 35 minutes every day – and a few more. 

Thomas also asked our family and friends to support his fellow South Sudan kids through the Undying Hope mission and Seeds of Hope initiative. 

I hope you will find my son’s story encouraging and promising.

My son’s Report Card from one of the schools that he attended in South Sudan. He was top of his class of 130 students. This school was relatively better than many others.

Update on the Seeds of Hope:

As a direct result of your prayers and generosity, we are making progress one step at a time. Since my last week’s update, the finance team received a few more checks along with online donations. Thank you! 

One more borehole still needed as a pressing need. The plan is to dig two water wells. Thus far, the cost for one water well (borehole) and trees have been reached. We may get a discounted borehole for $8,000 from a water drilling company based in the U.S. but operates in South Sudan, of course, depending on the season and underground formation.
