I just moved to the Volunteer Apartments today. Pretty excited about that . . . the internet works better here! 🙂 Of course it is still a little slow compared to the states, but it is a little better than the guest house.
Sorry I have been totally awful at blogging the past few weeks. I just learned today how to view comments! Thank you everyone who has commented on my blog, you guys are so encouraging!
Much has happened in the past couple of weeks. Simi left the other day. It was really sad to see her go. She is such an amazing woman of God and was so encouraging to all of us. I know that God is going to do amazing things through her as she returns home!
We had quite the cell group two weeks ago. As much as I would like to write about it, I plan on doing the same thing when I return home in both the Tri Cities and Pullman – so I can’t say a word.
I am now Cell Leader – which i find to be a little intimidating . . . This past week I decided to show the Invisible Children video at Cell – Since we have a babies home in Gulu. It went pretty good, although it was a little heavy . . . . ok, very heavy. It was good though because it reminded us of what we are here for. Some days it feels like I am just playing with babies – but the reality is that we are working with abandoned or orphaned babies – these kids will grow up to be the future leaders of Uganda . . . and that makes all the difference.
I am finally going to Jinja next weekend! I havent figured out HOW i am getting there, but I already switched my off days at the Babies Home so I can go for the weekend. It should be good! I am excited to meet the people there.
I met two guys who just started an orphanage last week . . .well kind of met them. Daniel (one of the volunteers) is friends with them and he is going to set up an actual meeting for me some day soon. . . I have so many questions for them.
I have an actual roommate now . . . Pray for that. I haven’t shared a room with someone since first semester freshman year . . .and that didn’t even last the whole year. I feel kind of bad because she has had her own room for a while – Oh well, TIA right?
Anyways, I have to cook my own meals now and it is getting too dark to walk to the grocery store. Tonight I shall settle for a jar of peanut butter!
I will try to fill yall in on some other stuff that has happened in the past few weeks soon!
