over 11,000 words

If pictures are worth one thousand words, than this blog has over 11,000 words for you to take in!  I thought posting some pictures from the last few weeks would be a great way to share different aspects of things in my life.

Jinja, Uganda is home to the source of the Nile River
While in Jinja with M squad, we went on a mini boat cruise of the river

FaceTiming with Suminta on Monday
because being with friends in person isn’t an option, so online chats are a great alternative!

Third-term started Monday, so we have been busy collecting fees and requirements.
So much so, we had to start collecting from outside; thus the pile of sugar, toilet paper and brooms outside the office door Tuesday morning.

this is what I came back to on the building – the most recent progress on the “Hallelujah Project” (the library / classroom building)
Notice all the iron-rod structures now standing out of the foundation and the brick work within!
(another blog coming soon with project update information)

 

It may have been a while since I last blogged, but I hope you enjoyed the pictures and the glimpse into my life over here!

 

much love!
