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.

really love grape
I know this is a simple haiku but it speaks of the children and the simple pleasures. They wait patiently for a snack, but they especially love it when we bring a sweet after class.
From the Iron Donkey I watch

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