This is a sign that we are staying in a fancy place!! INTERNET that is somewhat fast!! After being apart for 2 weeks, Jeff , myself and the kids decided to treat ourselves and stay in a fancy hotel in Kampala for the weekend! To save on some time (we're getting ready to head to church)
I'll just give you a rundown on all the photos. Hopefully tonight I can attempt another blog post. We really need to get Internet once we get to Arua. We will be flying there on Monday!
Okay,...so below you will find Rapha School! The kids in new uniforms thanks to KidsLake, YOU, Brandie and a second grade class in the states that raised money for tuition and uniforms. Also, THE WELL at RAPHA!!! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You will see 2 girls carrying water jugs on their heads....well, in 2 to 3 weeks that will be NO MORE! The well is in progress and we all got to see it for ourselves. Thanks to Brandie, Greg, John and many of you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THANK YOU GUYS for making this happen!!! I can't tell you the JOY it brings the Rapha school and community!!
Photos of Brandie and the kiddos!! Me and Brandie met for the first time in person on Uganda soil! Can you imagine?? We hugged and had an amazing time!! WE ARE BLESSED!! It was so refreshing for me to see and hang with such an awesome, Jesus Loving group of folks from the States! THANKS TEAM for letting me tag along with you all!! I enjoyed meeting all of you and pray for safe travels as you guys continue to explore Uganda.
Photos of me and Marium, the cook at Arthurs house. She has taught me how to cook Matoke, which is a type of banana which you cook and eat with sauce. One of my favorite Ugandan dishes!!
Photos of the Solar Oven Bethesda was awarded by the Rotary Club. Ruth applied for the oven in 2000 and they just received it when we got to Bethesda 2 weeks ago. We baked breads, cakes, fish, potatoes!!! Jack and Lisa (from Great Harvest), you would have been proud of my bread skills!!! WOW! It was so exciting!! Bethesda hopes to bake bread and start a business where they use the profits for Rapha School and other projects.
Lastly photos of the kids at the Entebbe zoo when we first got here! Oh, one more photo of laundry and meat hanging on the line! Crazy eh? They were drying meat outside along with their laundry. I tasted the meat, it was similar to beef jerky!!
Okay, would love to write a million more stories!! I will do that once we get settled! LOVE YOU ALL LOADS!!!!
