Greetings from Uganda!
Ovulama bulybutiya? How’s life? It’s cool to learn phrases that I used to say back in the States in other languages so I can still use them. Anyway, life is cool here! We are entering the dry season, but that makes crossing the Lake nicer. Also we are starting some big projects around the farm, potentially a building or two and fixing the dock and beach. So you can be praying for that. Home improvements are sooo much fun, this past week Caleb and Anthony stayed back everyday and worked, while we crossed over to help at the church. It was so much fun to see the progress when I came back each day, they really cranked out some good work!
Over on the other side at church, I got the opportunity to go to outreaches on Tuesday and Wednesday. Tuesday we went to a local school and I taught Bible, the story of Mary and Martha, to 10-12 year olds. Wednesday i got to go to a weekly Bible Study the church has at the police office. They work 7 days a week, so they allow the church to come and share the Scripture with them on Wednesday, because they can’t make it to church very often. They also bring out anyone in the jail that week and make them listen as well. Totally awesome opportunities I wish we had in the states!
Thursday I did miscellaneous things around home small carpentry jobs and planning bigger projects to come, while others went to do school ourtreaches on our side of the lake in Nangombe.
Friday and Saturday were back in Entebbe, doing whatever thy hand findeth to do, and now I his morning I teach Sunday school with Christian in Nangombe.
So that’s a blow by blow rundown of my week.
Highlights last week are a visa trip to Kenya (drive for 16 hours over night on a bus, stay there for 24 hours and repeat the process), but everyone got back through the border okay and can stay the rest of the time here now! We also celebrated 4th of July on are island with a bunch of our friends from church. None of them had ever celebrated it before so we gave them the real American experience!
Anyway, please keep praying for our teams unity and dedication as we only have 11 weeks left in Uganda. May we leave it all here! Thank you so much for still showing interest and reading these posts. The next one might be a little while because I am going on a tech fast, ( mainly because it’s so easy to do here Uganda).
