We were once again blessed with the opportunity to worship with the congregation of Return Ministries. There really aren’t words for what you know will be the last full day with the people you have served alongside and come to love. There was more singing, dancing, and praising.
Lots of handshakes and hugs. Lots of photos. Lots of “until we meet again.”
The dedication of the water reservoir and the well spring brought claps and shouts of joy and some tears as we continue to walk this new path in Micah’s absence. This community will be impacted for years to come by these gifts of water. One man can make a difference for many. And God can multiply your gifts into the unexplainable.
“Whoever believes in me, as scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” John 7:38
We had one last visit to the children’s home where the children taught us how to make charcoal. Some of us might have been better at it than others. And we may have tried some Kingsford lookalikes, but ultimately we were schooled by the experienced Ugandan hands.
Our evening was pure joy as we surprised the staff of Return Ministries and some of their families with a night of cultural food, song and dance at the Ndere Centre. The experience was filled with, “Wow!” from our Ugandan friends and, “How are they doing that?” from our American lips. It was an absolutely amazing way to close out our trip.
Day 10 was spent shopping for pieces of Uganda to bring home and included a trip to KFC. Yes, please.
Our team would love to hear from you. Ask us your questions. We can’t wait to tell you about Return Ministries, Sole Hope and Amazima School and their work in Uganda. We would love to tell you about our experiences.
