Memories from Uganda

Whilst in Uganda, Ian and I traveled for two days with our LightForce International Ugandan workers. Our destination was schools deep in the bush and we were to deliver school uniforms and stationary items to the children and special equipment to the teachers for the school.

Yep.. you guessed it, we bounced around in the back of an open back truck for around 4-5 hrs return trip. It was a ride I will not forget for a long time. In the infamous words of Elvis Presley, I felt 'all shook up'. It took a good hour or so for my insides to slot back into their normal position. The road was so dusty and the journey at times was very uncomfortable to say the least.

But what a blast! As rolled along we sang songs, clapped, told jokes and really got to know the team. As you can image, Ian was a complete hit as the great white comedian.

I will never forget the faces of the children when we arrived at the schools. The journey was worth it all! We saw hundreds of children overwhelmed by all that they were receiving and it was great to see them put on new clothes.

LightForce is doing a great job in helping the Ugandan people to resettle back into their home land after years of war and heartache.

Please continue to pray for George and the team as they are busy working hard to help as many people as possible.
