Exams This Week, Lord Help Me!

So once again
It is THAT time...
The time
That stresses every teacher out

(I know I'm not alone in this!)


To be precise...
Mid-Term Exams...

While going through
Some cirriculum
From here...
I discovered something
That pretty much 
The Ugandan take
On schooling here...

If you note
Under the badge
It says
"School is God"

I found it
In the curriculum

A lot of people here
Think school is
The beginning and end 
Of all...

Please be praying
For the children

The school system here
Puts HUGE priority
On passing exams

So the way they go about that
Is by having the kids just
The things the teachers know
Will be on the test...

Contrary to that
We have been teaching the kids
The actual facts
And making sure they understand
Each thing they are taught...

As a result
Sometimes our kids get discouraged
If they can't answer
Every one of the questions
Even though some of them
Are far to advanced
For a 6 or 7 year old...

Please be praying
That the McCourtney children
Would be a light
As they go for testing

That they wouldn't become discouraged
But would know that
Everything that they do
Is "unto the Lord"


That their teacher
Would have peace
That only comes from the Lord!


Blessings all!
