Stop giving shoes

The hardest part of missionary work and working in a foreign country is finding people to trust even when you know it might be impossible because we will always be foreigners in their country. We sat in a restaurant while waiting for the plane to take us back to 'home' aka M

A day in Africa

A day in Africa is a day like no other. It’s mixed with many highs and lows. There's an odd satisfaction one experiences here when accomplishing a task that in America would be so simple to do. For example... Going to the grocery store is twice as difficult in Uganda

I'm grounded for awhile but the ministry continues on in Uganda even in my absence. Our pilot tailoring program has been progressing for over 3 months now and the ladies are diligent in coming to learn and making some pretty nice things. Forces are working against us to slo
