Hi there everyone!!! I have been so behind in my keeping up with this blog! I apologize!!!
Months just continue to keep passing by without my even knowing it. Thanksgiving next week and Christmas just around the corner!! Just doesn't seem right, as, of course, they don't celebrate Thanksgiving here and no one really puts much emphasis on the "decking of the halls"!!! BUT.....some good news for us is........our container has finally left the shores of America and is on its way to Mombasa. It's estimated time of arrival is Dec. 27. However it can take 2 more months after that to actually get clearing and on to Kampala! But I'm just excited that it has left. We are praising the Lord for that! We needed $3000 more dollars to get it on it's way. The team from Texas that I was telling you that stayed at the guest house went back to their home church and told the mission board and they decided to complete the funds for us!! I cried!!! The Lord is so good!!!
I have to be honest with you....my month 3 and 4 of living here were really hard for the kids and I as we were really missing 'home'! I had been told by other missionaries that it is the hardest time for everyone and that it was to be expected, but that it gets easier. They tell me things get easier starting in the 6th month. Not that things have been hard, it's just the missing family and friends and the conviences of America in general, but as much as I miss it all, I can rest assured that God has us here and we are in His will. I enjoy many aspects of Uganda, mostly
