A great weekend . . .


Thank you for praying!  We appreciated your prayer as we traveled.  Saturday the traffic was thick and slow, mostly due to attendees at the soccer match between Uganda and Zambia.  Our slow travel might have been frustrating to some but we enjoyed the time to see many things along the route, ranging from little shops to scenic fields of sugar cane.  Our vehicle worked very well.  We really enjoyed getting out of Kampala and seeing the countryside.
We were blessed to be with our missionary colleagues. They are excellent hosts.  We enjoyed playing, chatting, eating, pondering and praying together.  The visit was altogether refreshing for us.

Sunday we were warmly welcomed into the church.  The Ugandans were pleased that Jeff began his talk in Luganda, introducing himself, mentioning our family and telling why we are in Uganda.  He then explained that since he is a student of the language he would proceed in English.  At the close of his use of Luganda they cheered for him.  That was very affirming! Jeff felt the help of the Lord in speaking what God laid on his heart.  Again, thank you so much for covering the service in prayer.  God’s spirit was evident in the service.

Jeff posted some photos from the church service, as well as some of Lake Victoria as seen from the location of the church (see the link on the left).  

Again, thank you so much for your prayer.  We appreciate you!
Christine, for Jeff too
