Message from the Executive Director
We entered 2016 with uncertainty about how we would once again provide water to thousands of Ugandans following the end of government funding last March. But here we are, entering a new year by celebrating another 9,200 Ugandans served in 2016! A huge thank you to all of you who have made this possible!
On a personal level, navigating this transition has been both satisfying and stretching. At times, I’ve felt that my role requires more of me than I am able to sustain. In all of this, I’ve been led into a season of intentional vocational reflection and considering what the future holds for both me and for ACTS.
It’s through this reflection that I’ve decided to leave my role as Executive Director, following the June AGM in Comox, when we expect to introduce a new ED.
It’s been an honour to serve with ACTS these past three years, and I’ve been grateful for the opportunity to lend my perspective, gifts and energy in stewarding the organization, its mission and its services. I consider it a gift that my experience during this time has been instrumental in helping me hear my “inner teacher,” as Parker Palmer describes the soul, calling me in a different direction.
As I enter into the final months of my tenure with ACTS, I want to express my gratitude to each of you for giving so generously of your money, your prayers and your advocacy with others on behalf of ACTS’ mission in support of those thirsty for change.
