Joy in Tears #Uganda #butterfly #children #goodbye

I waved goodbye to my little Bethany who has been my friend over many years and many countries. We tell stories about Jesus together. Today she chose to leave with a friend. Her name is Stella and she is nine years old. Stella and Bethany my la fofo will love village children together.

It’s hard not to shed a tear when my friend and I have shared so much. I am proud of Bethany that she willingly flew into Stella’s satchel for the trip to the village.

Goodbye Bethany. I love you!!!!

And to our dear Acoli family we say goodbye for now. Goodbyes hurt but we are joyful to love you!!!

If you know me, you know I have tried to work in Liberia, No. Africa, Congo and So. Africa.  I never thought of Uganda, the Nile or mosquito netting as my “likely.”

 

The photo challenge this week is “Unlikely”

These pictures are all taken at Fort Murchison. A beautiful get-away and great place to enjoy an African Safari.

The Iron Donkey is a guest house where we stay in Gulu. The iron donkey is also what Westerners consider a bicycle.
