Tribute to Gilbert Conn
It was with great sadness we learned of the sudden death of Mr Gilbert Conn Gilbert, an employee of Shelbourne Motors had been a great supporter and assistant at the sponsored Bike Rides organised by George & Lynn McMahon.
At these events Gilbert met the riders along the route with refreshments and words of encouragement which were greatly appreciated by all. We tender to his wife and family our deepest sympathy.

Patrick & Felister Baligasima Visit
At the beginning of December we were delighted to welcome Patrick & Felister Baligasima from Discipleship Missions back to Ireland. It was a wonderful opportunity for them to meet with many of the people who have supported the work in Uganda.
Over the years CLP has raised money for their work in Uganda which has seen much growth. When we first met with Patrick 15 years ago he pastored several churches as well as two schools, this has now grown to over 500 churches, 3 primary schools, 2 high schools, several orphanages and is still growin!!
The partnership between CLP and Discipleship Missions has seen many lives changed for the better and the future holds exciting new projects and prospects.
December Bag Pack
On the 17th December we where bag packing in Sainsbury's Sprucefield. This was a very successful fundraising event and thanks to the generosity of so many people just over £1800 was raised for the building of a new classroom at the rural school in Magada, Uganda.
This primary school has to hold classes under the trees around the school as they do not have enough room in their present building.
Please help us to extend this building.
