Today was our final day in Uganda, though a few will remain and continue working for another week. We spent the day at the orphanage playing with the kids and doing dental clinics. (A few of the doctors went to a hospital in Kampala. Apparently they've got some crazy stories to tell, but I wasn't there… so you'll have to ask them when they get home!) It was an emotionally charged day for most of us… meeting new people, falling in love with them, and then saying goodbye.
We leave for London dark and early tomorrow morning. I will probably write one final blog upon our return home.
Please keep us in your prayers. We have to make it through Kampala traffic tomorrow morning to meet our plane. Thank you for your faithfulness to us and to God on this adventure!!
These are some of the "Moms" that care for the orphans at Adventure Village. Ricki and Bev hosted a little shin dig for them this morning and gave them gifts and prayed over them. Smokey led them in worship and real JOY shone on their faces!
Yup. That's me. I handed over my camera for a few minutes to Kathy, who was determined to take a picture of me with my camera. It only took 2 weeks, but she did succeed!

Awesome Photo Op
-- Jason, Rudy, Smokey, Gavin, Danielle, and myself took a stroll into the streets near the orphanage to witness to the people who lived in the area, specifically the boda boda (not sure that's spelled right) drivers. They're basically taxi drivers, but on motorcycles instead. We handed out candy and made sure each person we spoke to had at least heard of Jesus. We ended up on a corner where the boda boda guys park and wait for clients. I took this man's picture and he asked how he could get it! I promised him I'd put it up on the website tonight. SO.. this is me keeping my promise. :)
