Our 4th Christmas

We just celebrated our 4th Christmas here in Uganda.  It’s hard to believe Evangeline was two when we celebrated our first one in 2008.  This week we had a party, we went to parties, and enjoyed a festive church service—so wonderful!

People are mourning with us now that we have tickets to return to the USA in late January.  Most Ugandans don’t believe it when they hear we are leaving.

Just this evening, we just returned from dedicating the new land for our Kampala congregation.  Someone told me in a hope-filled voice that maybe we would return to Uganda someday.  I think after three years, we have become part of their normal lives.  They are accustomed to seeing us, being with us, expecting us at events, counting on us.  But soon we will just get on a plane and we will be gone.  It is all very sobering.  Thank you for the prayers as we take our leave.
