hello from uganda!

what a crazy almost week it has been. i have finally arrived in jinja and i'm in love with the people, culture, town, and boda bodas!

i spent my first few days in kampala visiting some sweet and very dear friends. such a fun reunion it was!

emma, macey and sharon were the best "guides" ever and took me from church to shopping to all around kampala and then dropped me off in jinja. it was truly the best ever.

we traveled to jinja and were able to meet up with our friend joanna. i was so pumped to finally meet her after so many years of loving the same land!

my dad is with me and leaves on saturday. i'm going to miss him fiercely but am so thankful for the time together in the land i love and that he has learned to love and embrace the culture, too!

ekisa is beyond anything i could have dreamed. i've fallen in love with the kids, mamas, and everyone else. i'm absolutely in love with jinja in general and love getting on a boda boda (motorcycle of sorts) and being able to go anywhere.

we spent today riding horses down the nile river and it was absolutely amazing. i highly recommend it and plan to go again before i leave uganda.

i'm so thankful for god's provision in this journey. i feel at peace and like i'm right where i'm supposed to be. there is nothing like the center of god's will. it is such a sweet place to be. while i'm still unsure of how long i will be in uganda and where God will lead me i am incredibly thankful for each day He gives me and know that this trip is not the end of my journey here.

thank you all so much for the prayers, love, and support as i begin this journey. it's been so good + i can't wait to see what he does in the coming days and months ahead.
