24 hours!!

It's only 24 more hours until I'm on a plane back to Uganda again! I can't believe how fast these 3 months have flown by.

Christmas with my family was definitely the highlight of this trip, especially since I wasn't sick for it this year! Christmas has always been a really big deal in my family, and really a magical time since I was young, so it was such a joy to experience it again. Especially watching it through the eyes of my 3 nephews!

What I'm looking forward to the most about going back....

  • Giving out Christmas presents to my loved ones there!
  • Being greeted by my 164 kids at Genesis
  • Giving out more hugs in 1 week than I have in the past 3 months combined (most of my kids want more than one!) 
  • Playing my piano and learning the new music that I got while I was here
  • Driving on the newly paved roads of Mbale...after 1 1/2 years of them being completely torn up! 

What I'm not so excited about....

  • Negotiating another year of rent with the landlady
  • Figuring out what my little blessing car needs to be ok again
As always, I would so love your prayers, especially as I'm flying back and currently have a head cold! 

Happy New Year everyone!! 


  1. Love you and so glad your visit was so wonderful. Bob is still on my desk at work and reminds me to pray for you every morning. Godspeed!

    1. Thank you Dawn! That means the world to me!
