We have made it safely. The first night was very relaxed as we drove through Kampala traffic from the airport. Sunday we got to go to a special Thanksgiving service to welcome home Pastor Dongo. It was Filled with music and thanksgiving. We then had a traditional Ugandan meal to top off the service. We all piled in the van and drove to the high school. It was such a blessing to catch them on the weekend before exams. All the students were open and talkative. Lots of happy reunions and new introductions. Stu, Don and Lauren all got to meet there sponsor children. It was a great first day.
Here is a message from the team:
Marilyn- we are here safely after a long delay in Dubai. I met and spent time with Esther yesterday. It was wonderful! We also enjoyed a 4 hour church service mostly a worship and thanksgiving time. We enjoyed dinner last night at a French reastaurant. Not sure what today will bring as we go to the primary school. We probably won't start painting until Wed. All is going well!! Keep praying!!!
