You know you're in Africa when...

*A goat is slaughter 20 feet away from your room window at 6:00 in the morning. :-)

*6 people accept Christ in Sunday morning church service and immediately are walked down to the river to be baptised.

*A burning ceremony of witch craft charms.

And loving every minute of it!

I haven't been able to blog because the internet has not been great. It has been great enough for me to be able to talk to Ella several times though through Skype, my new favorite thing.

We are having a great time. The widows and orphans are so precious. I can't wait to be able to load some picture for you guys when we get back. Everybody on the team still has lots of energy and is feeling good.

We have two more full days at the orphanage and then on Thursday we head back to Uganda for our safari. And then we head home.

Just wanted to check in while we have a good moment with the internet.

Please keep praying! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I love y'all!!

Blessings and greetings to all you tired and weary servants of Jesus Christ! I pray that tomorrow will be a day of glorious delights in God's awesome creation! Take care and enjoy every moment...even the one's that have burdened you. God's Plan for your lives has been enriched through this sacrifice of your time and talents. Give yourself and your team a huge hug from me!
