It’s what the Lord has done in me

Let the weak say I am strong Let the poor say I am rich Let the blind say I can see It’s what the Lord has done in me I’ve been thinking about what the Lord has done in me while I’ve been here. In four days, I’m going home. But is it really home? […]

How Great Thou Art! Part 2-3

My second and third “How Great Thou Art” moments happened in the same weekend. We went on safari with the Brown family at Paraa Safari Lodge. On our first night there, we went on our first ever game drive. WOW! How Great Thou Art! I was overwhelmed by all of the beautiful animals that the […]

How Great Thou Art!

The beginning of the old hymn, How Great Thou Art, is very special to me. It reminds me how great the Lord is and of all the wonderful things he has made. Below are the lyrics. O, Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder, consider all the worlds thy hands have made, I see […]

Soaring on “Wings like Eagles”

I don’t know how many of you have heard of or read Bob Goff’s book, Love Does, but you seriously should. I haven’t had the pleasure of doing so, but I hope to soon. Bob is an amazing guy, and just listening to him is REALLY interesting. A whole book about him? Now THAT’S interesting. […]

What called us to Africa?

My idea about how we first came to Africa for six months is a little bit different than that of the rest of my family. We are here mostly because of Bob, but partially because of Casting Crowns. In case you didn’t know who Casting Crowns was, I’ll tell you. Casting Crowns is a Christian […]

Children of Kangulumira

Yesterday, on our way back from Jinja, we stopped to get pineapples and jackfruit, which is a green spiky fruit, about the size of a watermelon. It tastes kind of like bad, old banana candy and has the consistency of a stringy, chewy pineapple. I, personally, think it’s disgusting, but some people like it. When […]

Pray for them

Pray for them. Pray for the children. Pray the precious souls who have been suffering will find comfort in the Lord. Who have been waiting in an orphanage for someone to save them. The children who don’t know what it’s like to feel loved or appreciated, or even wanted. Who have been forced to beg […]
