22 days….22 days left until I am no longer a teacher at
When I started this journey to Uganda
this date seemed so far away. Now it’s only 22 days until my first big transition:
Unemployment. What a scary word! Unemployed?? For the past four years my work
has pretty much consumed my life. It’s such a frightening word, but a freeing
one at that. Unemployed….but not useless.
I keep thinking about my first day back in
summer. I stepped off the plane and said to myself “I am back home”. Everything
was so familiar; the Entebbe airport the long ride to Good Shepherd’s, the red
dirt roads lined by the green tea farms and sugar cane fields, the big white
smiles of the children as they ran down the road screaming “MZUNGU!”, and the
random (but not so random) sightings of couches tied up to bicycles traveling
down the road. I can’t wait to get back to this place. I still have a long ways
to go, and trusting that it will be come through is so hard. I have to remind
myself every day that He knows the plans He has for me and I just have to
remember I am working within His plan, not mine.
- Acheru: for the families that are there right now, the children who are there receiving their treatments, for the staff who dedicate their lives to serve there.
- Support. Financially and prayerfully.
Baby Leticia. She was about 9lbs when she came to GSF. From updated pictures she has gained so much weight!
