New Adventures in 2011

2011 could not have started off any more full of adventure. And this wasn’t a virtual adventure, but a real live trip around the world….a trip that involved five crazy flights and ended up in Uganda. Sadly, the kids did not get to join me on this one and neither did Brian, but they will live vicariously through me this next week as we dive into Uganda.

While I was gone, my mom taught the kids all about the UK and even made a traditional Shepherd’s Pie dinner. Thanks mom! (I’ll post a few pictures on that tomorrow).

Now there are several crazy things that happened that brought me to my Uganda trip and the story is long and complex, but really God is the one who made it happen and opened my eyes to this amazing country and prepared the way. 

Here’s a little photo gallery of my journey. Enjoy!

Thank you Jesus for this amazing opportunity to serve you.
