Our Own Christmas Story - Uganda

 20th December 2014 ………….. and in those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered.

And there was in that country a wise man named Daniel, who saw that Mary, with child, with 4 children actually, was unwell and homeless sitting under a tree.

Mary was about to be evicted, as her illness prevented earning shekels to pay the innkeeper. Daniel had seen a vision, from the angel inside his head :  that he must help, no matter the consternation it caused. …. especially to me !!!!

As all the world was to be counted, he was able to use the shepherds looking after their flocks at Ulster Teachers’ Union, Aghalee Mace, Aghalee Pharmacy, Collective Film Group, Portadown and Steve the bard from the north.

Michael, the angel, at moneygram spread his wings. ……and a moneygram star rose from Aghalee , above the heavens and rested just over Kampala. Daniel followed that star to the moneygram agent where he received gold, frankincense and myrrh for the destitute family. The gold allowed him to purchase camels for the long journey to where Mary and her children would find a home and be safe. ………. Items and supplies for when they got there, and more items for granny and her family.  

…. And so on Christmas Eve 2014 it came to pass.
