In June 2015, my wonderful friend, Nicci, and I made a trip to Uganda to visit with some of the children of Manna Rescue Home and see some of the Ugandans (and Americans) who I have missed so much!
It was such a sweet time! Nicci and I got to do some teaching at Manna and spend time with many precious people, like Macline (above), a 15 year old girl at Manna. We had so many adventures in our 9 days in Fort Portal, but one of the best things about the trip was the feeling of HOME I already felt being there. Fort Portal is already feeling like a familiar place and the entire time we were there, I just kept thinking how great it will be to be there with our entire family.
We spent hours sitting, talking, and learning from the legendary Carol Adams, and had dinner with our friends The Dunns, and the gracious hostess Pat Abbott, a missionary with SERGE: Grace at the Fray.
It was a wonderful trip and possibly our last trip to Uganda before our big move. My only regret was that Daryn couldn't go this time.
In September, Daryn and I will be officially interviewing and training with a missionary agency who we are OVERJOYED to be working with! We will wait until we return in September to say who this is. At that point it will be official and we will kick off our fundraising.
Until then, please continue to pray for our preparations.
