#3 June email “Day 2 in Pallisa”
Today was an amazing day!!! We went to the school and met with pastors from all over Pallisa, surrounding towns and districts. We played Bible trivia with them and then distributed Bibles. The main focus was The Word. How will their congregations learn to love the Word if they don’t spend time in it? What was supposed to be a thirty-minute meeting, became a three and a half hour meeting. It was GLORIOUS!!!! God was made much of this morning!!! The people were chomping at the bit to share verses they had memorized and to share their love for God and one another.
I’ll tell you what, this culture can teach us SO much about loving God and others. They are so gentle and loving with everything they do! They truly live the fact that we are brothers and sisters. I met so many people today that I KNOW are praying for me and I for them. And the way these people pray!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s amazing. They all pray at once, which I would have thought would kind of freak me out, but today just made me cry. Their passion… how they called out to God was amazing. We may be able to help monetarily and such, but these people can teach us SO MUCH about loving and honoring the King of Kings.
Tomorrow we will be working on the mazi (water) side of things. We’ll be locating underwater streams and hope to meet with some people who are responsible for drilling. Just going where the Spirit leads… can’t wait to share what He has in store for us tomorrow!
I love you all and wish I could articulate better how amazing Uganda is!!! I have not come across one negative part yet! It’s not that hot. The mosquitoes are worse in Alabama. I haven’t had to wear much sunscreen and I’m getting a nice golden tint. Plus…My hair loves it here. 🙂 The only thing is that when I see a goat… there is a very good possibility that it will be my lunch tomorrow. Other than that, this may be my favorite place on earth!
I hope you are all doing well and enjoying this beautiful day the Lord has given us. May you be blessed and bring Him glory!
