The Move to Uganda
We arrived at Chicago O’hare around 6am on Tuesday morning, and got all of our luggage checked in. All of our flights were on time and the children traveled so well. Several passengers commented, “Your children are soooo well behaved.” To which we gave God thanks and replied, “Most of the time.” The kids loved “soda on demand” on the flight.
We had prayed for good weather when we arrived in Uganda (it’s rainy season) so that transporting baggage would go well. All of our luggage arrived (at the same time!) and it wasn’t raining. Blessings!!! Come to think of it, the only bump we hit in the road was the flight of our dear friend Keri Crider that came in about 5 hours late. By the time we picked her up and drove to Dan Dwire’s home (where we’re staying in Kampala for a week), it was around 4am, Thursday morning.
Later that same day, we put a downpayment on our first Ugandan vehicle, a Toyota Regius. Dan doesn’t waste a minute! I had my first drive today. Wow, I wish you could have been with me. It was just me and Noah. He tried to keep a straight face, but I think he was pretty nervous. He said, “That was close” about 5 times. I paid for a year of car insurance at $15. Eat your heart out!
Right now, we’re just picking out furnishing for our home, and preparing to leave this Friday for Arua. Please pray for a safe trip. We’ve had the opportunity to pass out some tracts and talk to a few people. The Dwire family has been an enormous help to us. I can’t begin to list the many things they have done to make our landing in Uganda so soft.
Tomorrow, I will be preaching at Gospel Light Baptist Church in Kampala. My father has supported Pastor Pridgen’s ministry there for decades. It will be good to finally meet him. Seeing it is Mother’s Day, and they do celebrate Mother’s Day in Uganda, pray for a Spirit-sensitive attitude to meet the needs. Happy Mother’s Day to my dear godly mother and to all the precious mothers reading this.
In the Name of the King!
