I’m sitting in a beautiful hotel in Kabale, Uganda, with an amazing view of the town below and the gorgeous mountains around us. I’ve enjoyed a plate of pineapple, watermelon, and fried eggs for breakfast, along with a cup of African tea. While eating my table read through John 9 and discussed the story of Jesus healing the blind man. We are reading through the Gospel if John together as a team every morning for devotions. I am loving our lengthy conversations about what we can glean from God’s Word together. We aren’t reading a devotional or even answering predetermined discussion questions. We are simply responding to the living and active Word of God, leaving the table challenged, convicted, and encouraged.
Today we are going to a festival called the Day of the African Child, hosted by Juna Amagara Ministries. In the past this event has been hosted by ministries like Compassion International or World Vision, so it’s a real honor to be serving with this year’s host. After that, we will be traveling to the remote, mountainous village of Kishanje. Before I leave some Internet access, I thought I would send an update…but as I sat down to write, I didn’t know where to begin. But it’s too late now because my Internet connection is literally walking away!
Thanks for your prayers and I will try to give more details soon!
