This trip has seen more progress – Ugandan trainers are being trained more fully, we have been asked to lay out a 3 year training manual with key topics. And most gratifying – I took time to listen to a number of their personal stories. Wow – pain, faith, care!
Today at 5 a.m.began the long journey home. A six-hour car drive literally came to a dead stop during lunch hour in kampala. As we were finally snaking our way through Kampala—you guessed it, our car broke down. Mark and I got out and pushed it to the side of the road. About 40 minutes later we were up and running. A military vehicle with flasher lights was speeding along, honking unceasingly for cars to get out of his way. Our driver put on his emergency flashers and followed right behind the military vehicle. Sort of like a 60-minute twisting, bumping, noisy ride at Disneyland.
As I send this I have 90 minutes remaining before my flight from Entebbe to Amsterdam. Thanks for your many prayers and messages. I will be home in 24 hours. “Home” sounds very very good to me.
