I meet Badru on our first journey to Uganda and our r...

  • There's something special about these trips. It seems that may faith is strengthened because I get it connect with individuals in East Africa who do not have major connections this worldly system. What do I mean? It's as if the Ugandans spend all there days living in survival mode. This is Round 2 for me and I am very thankful to be back in Uganda. Sunday was absolutely amazing. We had church fellowship at Brian and Edith Ssali's house. The kids at their home almost sung me into heaven. The singing, food and fellowship was absolutely awesome. Kevin, Kurt, Anthony and myself were asked to share...
