Uganda 2011 Entry 4


Updates from here out will probably be short and sweet. The team arrived yesterday and I have to say, being around so many familiar faces has really been good. I loved hugging the same people on the same soil that I did last year. 
Leaving the children's home however was terrible. I knew I was going to see the kids in two days and I still almost burst into tears. Mama Sherry said leave it to me and Kristal to cry, but they really feel like my nieces and nephews. 

Speaking of nieces, thank you for those who prayed for Betty. She is a girl from the school who was hit by a boda boda (motorcycle) the other night. She's doing very well all things considered and was smiling very big when we went to see her.

The team jumped right in today with our first medical clinic in Jjokolera. I was working in the pharmacy so I didn't get to interact with many people, but Jesus revealed to me a wonderful truth: this is a family affair. Today I got to work along side my brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, Papas and Mamas in Christ. It was wonderful. 

I love you all so much, but I have to say, I'm really starting to fall into a groove here. It's getting harder and harder thinking about coming home. Oh Uganda, how you always manage to steal my heart!
