We will be starting the comprehensive exams for our level four class this week. Exams for the rest of the students will be the following week. We take two intakes each year. One group comes is August and another in March. So we will have two groups finishing each year. We decided it’s too expensive and impractical to have two graduations per year. There will only be one graduation in November. So we aren’t having a graduation. We did have a celebratory Mass and dinner for this group who have finished though. Then they will come back for graduation.
The pictures are from Mass and dinner. The Mass was really nice. The rest of the student body organized a choir who did a really good job with singing. Father John always does a nice job talking with the students. He has taught social studies for us a few times so he knows them.
This will be my last update for a while. I leave Yambio June 23 and get to the States June 26. I have to stay over in Juba because I couldn’t fly from Yambio to Uganda. The Missionary Aviation Fellowship isn’t allowed to fly directly to towns in South Sudan anymore. They now have to fly to Juba first. Apparently the South Sudan government feels that tightens security. Whether this is a fact or not remains to be seen. It does create a lot of congestion in the Juba airport.
