Robyn& I made to Jinja! We were first greeted at the airport with Jenny and our two newest grandchildren, Christopher & Katie. This was a pleasant surprise that we really enjoyed. We have been appreciating the glory of God through our journey. We took a boat ride today on Lake Victoria and went right to the source of the Nile River. We saw monkeys in the trees and birds in the sky, the kids absolutely loved it. You might say it is a lot like the jungle boat at Disney Land, but this was real.
We will be here through Friday when we head down to Masaka. We will be greeting our newest missionary team, Franklin Academy from Tennessee with senior high students. I will be meeting with a ministry friend, Terry, who will be drilling for a water well in a neighboring city and village, for his organization. I plan on being there to witness the drill and installation of a well. We believe we will be using the same well company to construct our well. It is really great how we are lead to the right connections when you work for the Lord.
I will fill you in on a little God story. I met Terry the other day at World Water Day in Billings, he works with sand filters for making clean drinking water as well as help with water wells. He travels around the world working with people who need water. I failed to get his phone number for our final connection in Africa so I would know where to meet him, because I knew he was not working in the same city as us. Well today we bump into him on the street in Jinja, both of us away from our respective missions. Actually we are about five hours away from our meeting point. So we were able to make contact for next week to coordinate our meeting. The Lord will take care of the details, like hooking you up in a foreign land half way around the world with people you need to meet. Uganda is not the largest country in world but we are talking some pretty remote areas with a large population. We have an amazing God!
