Praise be to God!
Halfway into the year, we bless the Lord for the year so far. Isn’t God good! We continue to thank you, our online family for all the support you give to Mengo Senior School. We thank our dear parents for taking care of our Students. The term is busy but we have learnt that Success is for the battle hardened. Nothing will come to us on a silver plata. Everything good must be worked for. God in His faithfulness has promised to bless the work of our hands.
On Friday 10th June, 2022, we had the opportunity to bid our friend, our brother, our mentor, our father, our former head teacher- Mr. John Fred Kazibwe farewell. Of course there is a sadness that came with it but the lesson of the day was “When you do good, you feel good!” Mr. Kazibwe had to be celebrated for the great things he did in Mengo, not only infrastructural but also inscribed in the inner person of different beings.
As an individual, what is it that you have done that will cause us to celebrate you. What is it that you do that we will call good? In each one of us, God has placed the ability to do good. We all have something to contribute to the growth and lives of others. Have you yet identified what you can do to make the world a better place for someone?
Do you know what amazes us all! The testimony of humility that everyone has about Mr. Kazibwe. James 4:6 says ” God opposes the proud but he gives grace to the humble.” With all his achievements, he would be full of himself but he attributes it all to God and to the team God gave him to work with. His desire to help others improve is enigmatic. As you grow, do you think about growing with others? When we work in a collapsing institution, we shall collapse with it but if it flourishes, we shall grow with it.
As Mengo Senior School, we believe that it is our duty to produce God fearing citizens who will serve the Church, the state and the world. With our core values of fearing God, respect of persons and property and integrity, we strive to affect not only the cognitive domain but also the affective. (Head, Hand and Heart) This may not be easy but we have to start somewhere. There is surely something that you can do. A journey of a thousand miles starts with but a step. I implore you dear Readers to always do good. Galatians 6:9 says” Do not grow weary while doing good, for in due season you will reap a harvest if you do not give up.”
In his farewell speech, Mr. Kazibwe stressed that the secret is in keeping in Christ. Are you rooted in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ? It is only God that will enable us to flourish.
“Observe the commands of the Lord our God, walking in His ways and revering Him.”
May God bless you all!
