Update from Uganda

Had a great 2 days in Palissa. We got to serve a big feast yesterday to the kids and staff. It was fun and tiring. We stopped at the school on our way out today. It was a long drive to Jinja today with our luggage van breaking down but it didn't take long to get fixed and we made it to our destination. While we were waitin in our big bus, we stopped off at a little place that had a restroom and sodas. Lots of kids flocked to us to check out the Mzungu's. One kid had a nasty open sore on his foot. Lauren got out her first aid kit and cleaned it, put ointment on it and bandaged it up for him. I hope it heals up. It looked really painful.

We split the team into two groups and visit two orphanages tomorrow and then spend the rest of the time at a children's home in Jinja. I am so excited to go back there!

The kids here in Uganda are so precious and joyful. They teach us so much more than we could ever teach them. I'm so glad to have been able to come back.

Our team is fun - now that we are getting to know each other more, everyone is coming out of their shells and we are laughing a lot. It's been a great trip so far. Can't wait for all o them to experience Jinja. Love it there so much!!!
