Last night Donny, Whitney and Andres hopped on their plane home to America. We had an easy going day wrapping up all the leftover business they wanted to do while here, which included lying around doing nothing. My boys are fairly good at that. Reading was high on their priority list and they enjoyed the … Continue reading Thinking about the future for the orphans.
At 5:15 a.m. Herb rapped on my door. I had overslept. I slipped sleepily into the shower and within fifteen minutes we were on our way to the hotel to pick up the rest of our crew to drive north for our safari at Murchison Falls National Park. Herb had packed the van with our … Continue reading Safari in Uganda
I haven’t been bit by one mosquito in over two weeks of living in Kampala Uganda. I have a secret… and I’ve been experimenting so I’ll share my crude results. Whitney and I have been taking two garlic pills a day and I’m also taking extra B1. That’s what the google results said, so I … Continue reading preventing Malaria: garlic and B1
Hi everyone, I am sitting in the lobby of Paraa lodge with twenty minutes and counting before the internet is shut off for the evening.

It was a great joy for me to finally meet her … Continue reading The team farewell to the children
I am not sure how I’m going to convince the world how much mission work we accomplished on Thursday, because I still don’t believe it, and if it weren’t for the power of God to work through simple people like us it would have been impossible. I might mention, there isn’t a pastor on our … Continue reading Our Mzungu kids made an inspiring decision.
It is the third day report, and it was so full I have dozens of blog subjects from it, but I must choose because they won’t give me all day to write, and I know you don’t have all day to read. But I promise to continue writing the stories long after our trip is … Continue reading Tropical Medical Mission Clinic in Uganda
Looking outside the window and watching life in Africa roll by used to have me at the edge of my seat, and I’d wonder how people here could be so active and busy every hour of the day. There is never ever a view here where there isn’t a group of people moving about their … Continue reading Our second day at the orphanage.
