McDonald - Fibinachi - Jack n' Jill Update

Sorry I left everyone hanging...

The McDonald's found out there is a 1941 law banning all marijuana products... even the approved health ones...

So even though the Ugandan Gov't asked them to come here are experiment with a "super-oatmeal"... the McDonald's were left hanging because the gov't didn't put the invitation in writing...

So when facing 7 years or $50,000... Ronald did the smart thing and paid the bribe of $6,000...

Although he didn't have the money so another missionary friend gave them a loan...

If anyone is interested in sending the McDonald's some $$$ click on my profile and send me a personal email and I'll send you a link to their website... please don't send an email just to find out who they are for gossips sake but only if you truly want to help...

The Fininachi's are having a rough go... the church that stopped sending funds is now putting the wife under church discipline...

They say she is not being submissive to her husband who wants to stay in Uganda... but her only reason for not wanting to stay is that they have no funds... kind of ironic that the church pulled the funds and now is disciplining her for wanting to have the funds necessary for survival ... it makes me want to throw rocks at the leadership of their church... it wouldn't do any good other than I'd feel better for 5 seconds until guilt and conviction of the Holy Spirit set in...

Other than prayer their isn't much to do for them... because I wouldn't send them any support $$$ through their church...

Jack and Jill have made a smart decision...

They sent out applications to every ministry on their A List in Africa... if they get a job offer this month they will stay... if not they have flights booked for Australia on December 25... they will begin a Masters program in the area of intercultural studies in Sydney if there is no job...

Thanks for caring for and praying for 3 great families most of you have never met...
