Where we have been

On Thursday we traveled to Kanungu to attend the burial of Gerald's Grandmother who was 90 years old. Gerald attended school in Modesto and we came to know him well. We have also come to know  his parents Hamlet and Kalene Kabushenga. His grandmother was prominent in politics and a personal friend of the president. So 2,000 to 3,000 people attended the service. It took place at her home-way up a hillside out of Kanungu. It was amazing to watch.  They fed everyone - beef, matoke, rice, peanut sauce and beans. No silverware around. So we ate Uganda style with fingers! People everywhere. The prime minister helicoptered in . We were seated directly behind the prime minister and the cabinet members. A five hour service cut short because the helicopter couldn't fly after dark.

Saurday we attended a wedding reception for Judith, a friend of ours. She is
now an Anglican reverend.

We visited Emily in her home. Her faith in God is very strong in the midst
of extreme difficulty.

Prosse-whom we also prayed with. She was not a believer and wanted peace.

Children everywhere

Sunday we went to two different churches. This is Soulwinner with Pastor Victor.
This is the Rwandese choir singing in their language. Beautiful!
