As expected, Uganda consists of poverty like I’ve never seen before. We arrived in Uganda late last night, so we didn’t witness the poverty that exists in this country until today.
Margret and Dennis are truly a blessing—wonderful Christian people. We are in one of the few nice homes in the city. Accommodations are great.
After three hours of sleep, we head off to church—that was an experience in itself! It began with a 1½ hour praise and worship/dance time. What joy these people have! Church totaled about three hours.After church became familiar, we met a 90-year-old woman taking care of three children, a three-month-old, seven-year-old and a nine-year-old. Their mother was electrocuted last week, and the father had also passed away. What a heart tugger!
On the way back, one the Uganda team had a seizure in the van. I was impacted by Katie Peterson as she sprang into prayer over the gentleman. We thought he was going to die, but he came back around.
When we arrived back at the house, we assembled the PET cart, and the lady came to collect it. Heart tug #2. She was so thankful, she brought me to tears. As I suspected, my emotions have been maxed out. God will get me through. I can honestly say that this team has truly been an inspiration to me, and I am feeling blessed beyond all measure. I cannot wait for day two!!!
