Nadine's Initial Thoughts on Uganda

We're finally in Uganda and it's amazing! There is so much scenery and lots of fresh fruit. The mangoes and the bananas are incredibly good! One thing I've noticed is that there are lots of hills. Hill after hill after hill after hill after hill. Not mountains, just hills.

It's very pretty though and I enjoy it. :)

I'm getting over jet leg faster than I expected, (though on the first day I almost fell asleep at lunchtime), and I'm getting a lot of my school work done fast. But it's still school and school can get boring. :)

The thing I'm most sad about right now is how the time difference is 11 hours and I can only communicate back and forth with people late at night and early in the morning. It's very hard but I've been doing pretty good. I can't wait to have many more experiences here in the future.

We have arrived!

After many difficult goodbyes, and a long journey, we have arrived in Uganda.  We thank God for a good trip. 

At this time, we are staying at Word of Life, in some cottages, while we look for a house to live in.  We are starting to see the great work being done here at Word of Life, and getting to know what goes on in the ministry.  At the same time, we are trying to get the kids into a routine of school work.

Checking out the Word of Life property.

A wing of Word of Life International School and the basketball court.

We will keep you posted as more things come together.
