First of all, if you are new to my blog, here is a guest post I did on my friend Cor’s blog with a little bit about why I am in Uganda for the second summer and how I love seeing what God is up to around the world.
A year ago, as I was flying to Africa, I remember thinking, “This sucks. This is the longest flight(s) of my life. Thank goodness I am never doing this again.” And then I found myself back on an airplane a few days ago. It was still dreadfully long, but much more tolerable… probably because I knew the outcome would be landing in a country that stole my heart. And it didn’t hurt that I had layovers that were several hours long so I didn’t need to do any running through airports. Also, on the longest leg of my trip, no one was sitting in the seat next to me! It was like magic. I could stretch out all I wanted (within my 2 seat area).
I am sharing a room with my dear friend Jessica, who I met last summer. It is so exciting to be reunited. And she made the right choice this morning and let me sleep, rather than waking me up with a good morning song 🙂
I have had a chance to sit down and look at our schedule, and I think it is going to be a packed 4 weeks! We will be partnering with some of the same ministries as last year, as well as a few new ones. We will also be going to visit a couple of other cities, which I am super excited about. All in all, I think it is going to be a great month in Uganda. I’m super excited for all of the adventures and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for us.
(as a side note, my day off is on Fridays, so there might not be a lot of blog posts between now and next Friday, since I haven’t been here long enough to actually have things happen in my life. Just like last year, know that my silence doesn’t mean that I have been eaten by a zebra. Full reports will come your way soon enough.)
