First off today we hit up one of the sustainability projects of watoto – their farm.
Following that we went back to Bbira were we were able to dedicate our sidewalk that we had built, donate some soccer jerseys, and even got to meet one of my sponsor kids and one of Lois’ as well.
We also went to Saturday night church at Watoto Central and what an experience. So much joy, so much life, so welcoming. All in all a good day!
We also now have ALL the bags! Praise the Lord!
However Barb is currently sick and spent most of the day in bed resting up.
We leave EARLY morning tomorrow to head up to Gulu where we will get to see more of Watoto’s villages and homes.
Not sure on the internet capabilities up there, but I will try to keep you all updated.

A wonderfully, but exhausting day.
Today we went to Bbira (one of the Watoto Villages just outside of Kampala). We spent the morning working on a sidewalk – shovelling sand, shovelling rocks, mixing with water and cement, loading into wheel barrels, and dumped in the section that was needed. It was intense and very tiresome but we worked hard and efficient.
We also got a brief tour of the village and heard about all that they do. We will be visiting again tomorrow.
P.S. Luggage update – 5 more bags arrived today. 1 more to go.

A great day!
We got to visit Baby Watoto – Bulrushes and cuddle with some amazing kids.
We also got to share some of the sleepers that we as a church had collected in November and December and be a blessing to constant need that they have.
The gentleman in the 3rd picture below is our Watoto Host – Dennis. He is great and has been such a joy to be around.
P.S. Luggage update – 2 more bags arrived today. 6 more to go.

We have made it to Uganda.
When we were picked up we briefly stopped at the guest house, then went to exchange our US Dollars into Ugandan Shillings (1:2510). After that we went to Watoto Central Church for a tour and a brief orientation as we prepare for our time here.
Today was nice and quiet. A good way to ease into Uganda – but I can’t wait for tomorrow.
Out of our 8 team members, 6 members are missing at least 1 bag of checked luggage. Please pray for the speedy arrival of those items.
