Jinja at last!

Whew, what a whirlwind of a week. We arrived safely with all of our luggage. The children did amazing on the plane. I was so proud of them. Aletheia made lots of friends on the plane. Debbie Nester, our missionary host, lost her passport in London and they found it on the plane. She was able to get back on our connecting flight without any difficulties. We were so thankful. That situation could have been a mess.  (more…)

Leaving on a jet plane…

Tomorrow we leave! It’s hard to believe that this time has come. It’s been an emotional roller coaster packing, preparing, celebrating and saying goodbye. Thank you for all of the prayers especially for our children and the grandparents saying goodbye! 

We will continue to keep our blog up and running while we are away. My goal is to post weekly. Remember that you don’t ever have to miss a post, but they can be delivered right to your email address.

Only God can change a heart

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you;

I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.

Ezekial 36:26

Easter weekend we visited friends at an Easter play. One of our friends asked Cadance, our oldest, if she was excited about our trip to Uganda. Her resounding answer, with rolling eyes and all was, “No, they didn’t even ask me if I wanted to go!” A little later, I heard about this conversation and I embarrassingly tried to explain it away, but that conversation gave me a real glimpse into her heart.
