Greetings from Pallisa! We arrived here 2 days ago and meet up with Pastor Samuel and his Family. We felt such a warm welcome from everyone here. Yesterday morning we had Vacation Bible School at the School with 169 kids. The kids just loved everything we did for them and learning about Noah’s Ark. In the afternoon we did Community Health Evangelism with the Ladies and Bible Club with 68 kids at Pastor Samuel’s. To end the day we counted all the meds for the clinic. Some of us stayed up past our bedtimes to get them all counted.
Today ended our work here in Uganda where we had a clinic and saw over 259 people and were able to provide resources to them and share the Word of God. Come to find out we were the first “muzungus” (white people) to ever go to this village. We also had 15 Villagers lead to Christ which was a big blessing for the team knowing that we are doing God’s work over here. Tomorrow we head to Jinja to visit the Children’s Hospital to show them that we and God love them as we visit and pass out beanie babies. After visiting with them we will do a little shopping and end the day off at Ling Ling’s Chinese Restaurant. And yes, there is a Chinese restaurant in the middle of Uganda.
We have enjoyed our time here in Uganda and have had such a blessing to be able to come on this trip and see what God is doing in Uganda. This trip has touched our lives and we will always remember the experiences we have had over here. This was a new experience for me (Beth) and a very different one that will not soon be forgotten. Sean has also been able to experience the joy of sharing this with his wife. We have met some great people who will forever be friends as well as Brothers and Sisters in Christ. God has put us on this trip for a reason and I know we were used like God had planned. Thanks for all the prayers and love. See you all soon!
