Uganda – Lots of Questions & Some Answers

We’ve been back for an entire week now.  About this time last Monday we were meeting up with our kids for the first time in twelve days.  It was along time to be away from them.

Uganda (specifically Bundibugyo district) was beautiful.  As you can see in the picture, the area we were in is surrounded by mountains.  They are breathtaking.  Everything is green – grass, trees, bugs, lizards, oranges, lemons… everything.

It was a good trip.  We are thankful that God spared us from serious injuries and sickness. All our flights were on-time or early, we did not miss a single connection and all of our luggage arrived with us!

The team in Bundibugyo is doing some really great ministry.  They are working with healthcare & nutrition, and with Christ School Bundibugyo (a boarding school for Ugandan students). We really loved the team members.

So, now you are wondering if we’re moving to Uganda. Well, we are too. I had some unrealistic expectations coming into the trip; I thought there would be fireworks and a miraculous message in the clouds, “This is your home.”   Unfortunately there wasn’t a message in the sky, or an overwhelming sense of emotion.

It wasn’t a definite “no.” It wasn’t a definite anything.

We had a great trip, it was really cool to see everything the missionaries are working on there. I’m excited about the ministry and will be praying for them as they come to mind – regardless of whether we return or not.

Please continue to pray for us as we process what we’ve seen, where we’re led, and what we want to do. It’s really a faith-building experience. We will be updating as we know more.

Thanks for your prayers & financial support leading up to this trip.  We’re really glad to not be in this alone.

Also – on a personal note: I’m thankful that I don’t have to worry about finding a home here on earth. Nothing here will ever be as good as what is in store for me later.
