Traveling for Upendo's sake! August 27, 2015


The Chikdren of Promise visiting team - 
Linda Mason (Children of Promise Assistant Executive Director), and sponsors - Juliette Wilson and Laura Link and Annie Serwano (Upendo staff) and myself, have travelled to six church/school sites to visit sponsor children in Uganda. 

Interviewing children at UGM - Murchison Bay Naomi Froese school in Kampala. 42 kids interviewed. 
Then onward bound on Sunday - 

New site visit - UGKS - Kasenke, Mubende western Uganda. Four children sponsored here. A wonderful Sunday service was enjoyed and then off in a cloud of dust - with many miles and rough, dusty roads covered with little to wipe the smiles off our faces -- except a flat tire. 
Sunday working on jacking up the tire!
God has been good to us and has given us a safe time with hardly any sickness. GOD IS GOOD!
UGMK - first site visit in Masaka - 18
Children seen. Then a program from the children and a tour around the school and church in Nyendo. 

What a lunch - traditional foods, like matooke, ground but sauce, chicken luwombo, fried cabbage, steamed pumpkin, and so on!! Delicious!!
Next site - UGR - Rutooma, Bushenyi. 
Beautiful sunset along the way. 
Rutooma Jr  school and 43 Upendo sponsor children were seen. What a joyous time we had!
Church full of young kids and people. 
Having fun with the kids on the roadside.
Last site on our road trip --off to UGRK - Rukungiri where we saw 22 sponsor kids. 
Passing country-side....
Entertaining us with a dance. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch and then left for the 8 hour trip to the Capitol of Kampala and home!
An 8 and a half hour trip takes us back to the Capitol, Kampala and home. 
We have two more days of interviewing children at Kasubi, Church of God Headquarters - UG and then the trio will head back to the USA. 
Seeing @ 70 kids there - yes, a big thanks goes to all the sponsors who make life changes in these children. Amazing love!
