We'd tell you about the couple who biked over 50 miles to attend our leadership conference in Arua.
And about the new life former LRA child soldiers are now experiencing at WM's trade school in Pader.
We'd also tell you about Jessica, a young mom with Polio who carried her 2 yr old son Daniel on her back as she crawled around on her hands and knees.
We'd tell you about the women & children working at the rock quarry who chip stone for 60 cents per day.
And about the women who sacrificially prepared our meals, making sure tea was always ready at 10am.
We'd tell you about all of these stories and the many other things the Ugandan people taught us ...
Like how to laugh.
How to eat with our hands.
How to dance.
How to appreciate rhythm.
How to be a family.
How to trust God for daily provision.
How to rely on each other.
How to endure.
How to value education.
How to welcome.
How to forgive.
How to rest.
How to value a second chance.
How to be patient.
How to learn.
How to trust.
How to embrace.
How to be grateful.
And how to survive.
All of these stories and faces are still burned in the hearts and minds of our team. Tim and I were so grateful to have traveled with Linda Barry, Aaron Graft, David Howard, Mauri Tardy, Meredith Hall, Scott Whitaker, and Lisa Rickets, all of whom are top notch leaders.
We were also encouraged to see firsthand all of the work ALARM is doing in Africa. Lives are truly being changed as a result of the reconciliation and restoration taking place between different tribes in Uganda.
Mungo ne onyero,
Em & Tim
PS, several of you have emailed asking if we got to meet our sponsored boy, Moses. Unfortunately, we didn't but we're still keeping our fingers crossed that one day we will!
