It is three in the morning and the bark brigade is the background music I hear. Thankfully there are no discos with the volume cranked high nor is the muslim call to prayer in the loud speaker on top of their mosque disturbing my peace. It’s just jeglag that has me bright eyed this morning. Thankfully I have a simple day ahead of me and I’ll get some rest before I go to play with the children at the orphanage when they are released from school. It is going to be fun to see what their evening schedule is like when Phiona is there working with them.
On Sunday we went to church. One of my life’s joys is the worship in African church. It is a dance celebration. We missed worship thanks to the awful traffic jams in Kampala. I didn’t let it bother me though because the message was fantastic and it was just so wonderful to be at our home church in Uganda.
The best part of the day was to look into the sweet face of Rose and her children, but most especially her six week old baby girl, Michelle. And when I could hold the precious little baby I was so moved. She is beautiful.
We were able to spend a nice afternoon having lunch together and catching up. I hope to visit their school this week and be able to read some of the books so many of you have sent to me for the children at their school. It is impossible to find the quality of books I have carried across the ocean with me here in Uganda. This is the richest gift we could ever give the children in this country we adore so much. I hope their imaginations soars when they see the art work and hear the stories. I look forward to collecting many more books for the children and shipping them here to make a children’s library. Now that we have land, perhaps there will be a special reading room! We’ll see what God has planned.
