Sunday - Day of Rest
Today was a relatively relaxing day, with little work and more play.
This morning we were up a little earlier than normal and went to church at Victory Outreach Ministries. We were led in worship by both the School of Worship from Colorado Springs and the church's worship team. This church knows how to worship! They are always singing, dancing, shouting, or clapping… and sometimes jumping! They are purposeful, lively, and so transparent in their devotion to God. It was very refreshing to be at church after the long, tiring week of work at the hospital.
The kids are off to their own classes for church
After saying goodbye to the School of Worship team, which is on its way home today, some of us chose to walk home from church instead of take the bus. Nothing very spectacular happened, but it felt good to walk the streets… which is what so many of the people here do. Many of us decided to eat lunch at an American restaurant. They had pizza and burgers… but the sign out front wasn't very comforting. ;) Good luck?!
Tonight we pack up and head out for the next leg of our trip. Some of us, including myself, are heading out on a two-day safari, while the rest are headed to the orphanage at Seeta. The safari group will meet up at the orphanage at the end of the safari trip.

Please continue praying for the health and wellness of the team members. We have more travel and work ahead of us tomorrow. Please pray for the safety in travel. Please pray that God continues to penetrate our hearts and mold us as He sees fit. At church this morning, we saw several people welcomed into the family of Christ. Please continue praying for the people of Uganda, that their hearts also will be softened and open, ready to receive Him.

I just got caught up on this blog. I am praying for you and the team. I love the photos and the blogs and I know God is doing amazing things in and through you all!
