I can’t believe I already have to say goodbye. It seems like just yesterday I was boarding a plane to come here. The good thing is that I feel like I’ve accomplished what I personally came here to do: #1-Make a difference in someone’s life. #2-Strengthen my relationship with God. #3-See the beautiful things in nature that the Lord has created (ex. The Great Rift Valley, Murchison Falls, and all the breathtaking animals on safari.)
Making a difference in someone’s life may seem like it’s hard, but it just wait until you’ve come to Africa. I’ve realized that I’ve not only made a difference in a Ugandan child’s life; I’ve made a difference in mine. I know that might sound a little cliché, but it’s true. It seems the worst part about leaving is knowing you’re never going to come back. But I am. For sure!
I also wanted to thank all of my readers. You have been very helpful and supportive! Sometimes your comments make me tear up, though. But not because I don’t like them; they’re beautiful. Thank you all for praying for us and I know that you are with us every step of the way. We need extra prayers tonight. At eleven thirty, we’re going home. Well, to one of the many places I call home. It just amazes me how fast time flies when you’re spending it with God and people you love and cherish.
Love Always, Jennifer
