Boast, glory, joy, rejoice

“Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans 5:3-4 These photos are…

This Community.

When God called our family to work at Lulwanda Children’s Home, He went before us, as He always does, and prepared a place for our family. He not only grew in us a tremendous love for our Lulwanda family, but also for this amazing Mbale missional community. Next to our prayer partners and our Lulwanda…

An Interview With My Hero

Sometimes things get busy and complicated. Emotions run wild, feelings get hurt, we forget important events, run ragged from place to place, we are drained, and have no time to just “be”. Those times are what make simple things so wonderful. Wonderfully, simple. I had the pleasure of hostessing the first Lulwanda Women’s Retreat  It…

Words Be Few.

Time is short and words are few these days because WE ARE SO, SO BUSY! We are coming to the last couple of weeks in our busiest time of the year.  Too many weeks have passed since I last updated the blog and there is no way to fully recap all that has transpired, so…
