 What a Sunday!

What a Sunday!

Hello from the Uganda team! It’s been a fun past few days and I’m excited to update you all.

Since our last update the kids have continued working hard on the wall. More trenches are being dug for the foundation and LOTS of bricks are being laid to build up the wall. We have different crews out on the worksite. Some are dedicated to mixing concrete, some are doing digging for the foundation, some are brick layers, and some are bucket haulers (for sand, water, rocks, and more). The kids are doing amazing. It’s so fun to go out each day and see their progress.

On Saturday the kids worked in the morning, and then spent the afternoon working on their evangelism presentation for Sunday. They also had some time to catch up on their ever growing pile of laundry and play with the kids. We also sent them to bed early for some much needed rest! (Leaders included ;))

Sunday was SUCH a fun day. We went to a local church outside of Jinja. It was around a 30 minute drive and we got to cross the bridge that goes across the source of the Nile River! It was cool to see. Once we arrived we had to get out of the bus and climb up a hill (small mountain really). We were greeted so warmly by the church members. We enjoyed watching some special dances and songs. Then the church choir got up and did an AWESOME performance for us. It was so much fun. The kids shared their presentation which included a fun rendition of ‘Yesi Ni Wangu’ which the church loved. They were all singing and clapping along with us. With lots of whoops and shouts included.
We then enjoyed hearing a sermon from Mr. Judah. He preached on Philippians 4 and did a wonderful job. There was even one lady who was visiting the church that gave her life to Christ. After the service we met an American family who attends and runs a nearby school. After talking with them (they were very impressed with the team’s polished presentation!), they asked if we would be willing to come to their school and share with the over 300 kids who attend. We of course said YES! We will be going this coming Friday to share with them. All of the team is VERY excited.

After church we came back to the base and had a quick lunch, and then the team got to work on their memory verse reviews. This took a lot of the afternoon, but they got it done. After dinner, the team did quizzing, guys versus girls! Spoiler, the girls won. But they all did an awesome job! We have some great quizzers on the team.

During evening devotions we have loved hearing from count offs 1-7 (Shannon S, Kayla C, Anna P, Colby P, Donovan T, Josiah M, and Elianna M). It’s so fun getting to know each team member more and hear about their lives and how God is teaching them. We also love doing ‘Hot Seat’ questions. The kids can come up with some pretty inventive questions.

Many of the kids who previously had colds are doing much better! We are very thankful.

Overall, the team is doing great! All the kids send their ‘hi mom and dad!’. They miss you all, but are so happy to be in Uganda.















Hello friends and family of the Uganda team!!

What a joy it is to be writing this report. The Uganda team is doing incredibly well. We as a leadership are so proud of their hard work, and the way they are adjusting to Boot Camp and the other team members.

Hello to the family of our Uganda team members!

The team is doing amazing! They are really united together, and it is so fun to see.

Hello family and friends of the Uganda team!

What can we say? The team is doing well! They are all continuing to unify together. The OC (Obstacle Course) has really helped with this. Today they got every single team member over the wall! It was quite the celebration.

The Uganda team is finishing strong!!

The Uganda team is finishing strong!! Medically everyone is doing great!
The team is doing amazing. They're working together super well. The kids are beyond excited to be commissioning in two days!
I asked the kids to write me a few short sentences about their Boot Camp experience so far. They were excited to write something to you all. Hope you enjoy hearing from them, they miss you.

The Uganda team has made it safely to Dubai.

The Uganda team has made it safely to Dubai. They now wait 12 hours for their next flight to Entebbe.
Kids and leaders are all doing well!

We have made it safely to Uganda!

Mr. Moses met us at the airport with a bus. We are missing one bag which we left a claim for. They will call Mr. Moses when it arrives.

Hello! We are in Jinja!

Wow, what a journey our travel experience was.
We praise the Lord we made it on all our flights with no problems. Our 12 hour layover in Dubai was quite the experience, but the kids enjoyed walking around and taking it all in.
Josiah M and Jonathan S even took the opportunity to evangelize to a gentlemen at our gate who was an atheist. They said it was an interesting conversation. They left him with some Gospel tracks and encouragement.

The team is doing very well out here in Nakabango village.

Since our last update the team has begun work on their project! They are clearing a path to begin the foundation and construction on the continued security wall at the TMI base.
They’re working hard at clearing out old chainlink fence, bushes, branches, and full on trees! The students and staff at the base have been a huge help to the team on the project.

Surviving and thriving in Uganda!

Hello all! The team is doing so well. They are really making a lot of headway on their work project and they couldn’t be more excited.

Rainstorm in Uganda!

Greetings from the muddy Uganda team! On Thursday morning we had a very unexpected rainstorm come through and completely drench us. The kids were doing their library reading time in the dining area while the lady leaders were preparing breakfast. Needless to say, the roof had a lot of unknown holes. The kids were grabbing all the kitchen bowls and moving tables to keep their books safe. It was a funny morning to say the least!

Jambo!!! Hello from team Uganda!

Man, what a whirlwind these past few days have been! The kids (and leaders) have had so much fun, but we sure are tired!

Hello all!

The Uganda team is doing… okay. To be honest, since our last report we’ve had a bit of sickness. I’m pretty sure most of the sick ones got food poisoning from all the national Ugandan food they ate during our time of safari. We had quite a few in sick tent. However, they’re feeling a lot better after rest and A LOT of fluids (plus jello and applesauce). It’s been a weird few days, but through it all God has been good to us.

Farewell Uganda!

Wow. We cannot believe we have reached the end of our time in Uganda. Saying goodbye this morning to all of our new friends was hard. But it was a blessing to know we formed beautiful relationships!

Uganda arrived at Debrief

Praise the Lord, Uganda arrived at Debrief at 7:30 pm Monday Night
