When Sam was in Uganda, at the beginning of this year, we bought a car.

It is a good car.
We were so happy to have found it!
While there, Sam used it all the time – he even slept there a couple of nights. When he traveled back to Korea, it was still being used to take our kids to school.
That is, until it broke down.
Unfortunately, it is still sitting, in need of repair.
When Sam gets to Uganda next week (Whoa! Is it really almost November?!) there are many things he has planned to do – most of them made easier with a car.
Please, can you help us fix our car?
It will take about $1,300 for all of the repairs to be made.
When I came to Korea, over two and a half years ago, I was hoping that God would send me to another country, after my time here was done. I figured I would teach for a year or two, then head to America before going elsewhere.
from the beginning of my time in Korea
My how life changes.
Little did I know, I would leave Korea for home, but that home would not be the USA; it would be Uganda.
And much more surprising to me, I came here single and am leaving with my amazing friend and husband.
from the day we got married
Did she say leaving?
Why yes, I did slyly mention that I am leaving Korea:)
In just a few short weeks, Sam and I will leave this place we have called home since getting married.
But, the added twist: I am coming to the USA before I go to Uganda!
I am excited for the opportunity to see friends and family after so long.
Life has been changing over the past few months. I’ll make sure to fill you in on some of the details:)
For now, I wanted to let you know, we are doing well, living life and spending time with friends here in Korea.
One thing that has been nice, the past few weeks, I have been walking around a lake in the morning. Not only it is nice to walk in cooler temperatures, but it is so great to have a lake backdropped by mountains.
yes, I am a morning person:)
the lake is really beautiful
even with the construction and buildings.
I know this blog isn’t full of juicy information, but it does a hold a promise:
I will be writing more, much more, soon.
Be on the lookout!
This past month has held some ups and downs. But, as January is coming to a close, it’s better to focus on the good and stay hopeful for what is to come.
Sam has been back in Uganda for over a month now. Although it has not been easy having him so far away, I know that it is a really good thing he is there. Many things have gotten done that wouldn’t have, otherwise.
Previously, I talked about Sam searching for land (you can read that blog here). Well, Sam had found 4 acres. This is double the amount of land he had been seeing, and it was half the price!
Unfortunately, when he went for negotiations with the owner, the situation changed. The owner was now selling less than 1 acre, and it cost over four times the previous amount.
So, we have left that place and Sam has continued to diligently search for a good location for our school.
We have been so encouraged by those who have financially given to CITY, in order for us to purchase land when we find it.
Please, if you haven’t done so yet, consider partnering with us through a tax-deductible donation to CITYor telling people you know about what we are doing.
It brings us so much joy to see people coming together to support our ministry and the people we serve in Mukono, Uganda.
