|Seminarians Nicholas Musasizi and Ivodious Lihiru with Fr. Yago at Rubaga Students Center|
Many people have different things that bring them joy; but what brings me joy is being with children. Every Sunday is a fun filled day for me because it is the time that I come to be with these children. I do my pastoral work (Sunday School) at Rubaga Students Center with my brother seminarian Ivodius Lihiru. We are learning a lot from these kids in all ways, spiritually and socially. Even though some times there are many challenges but by the grace of God we keep moving on. It is not easy to deal with young children but we try our best so as to bring them closer to the light of God. They will be the future leaders in the Church and so they need to know God. You can be born from a family where members have faith but that doesn't grant you automatically that faith, but it could lay a foundation for your believing.
The decreasing numbers of these children when it is time for boarding school becomes a challenge to our service. Their age is also another challenge because sometimes we have those who are not yet talking and this makes it difficult when we are preparing for a performance at mass. This performance is often composed of two songs and a play based on the readings of the day. This has also brought us closer to the scriptures. The play helps the children to better understand the readings, and to be challenged by them.
