it’s been a crazy season of travel lately. i literally feel like i have been running from one thing to the next over the past 3 weeks. this has left me totally absent from the blog world. the time has not been without thoughts, struggles, challenges- but also blessing and joy. basically all the things that make up life.
all of the flying around is fun in a way, and has allowed for a lot of good experiences. it also however, keeps you from being settled and taking care of all of the little in and out things of life.
those things will have to wait though, as i depart tomorrow for africa. i will travel with a team of ncc-ers to uganda- first kampala then up to gulu- to work with watoto ministries. we will be doing a classroom building project. i’m thrilled to be able to work with watoto, an organization that we have built a long-standing relationship. this will be ncc’s 3rd trip to uganda, and i am really proud to be helping perpetuate a committed partnership with them. i am not against short-term missions trip across the board, but i believe they are far more meaningful and significant when they are part of a longer term connection that gets fostered over several years.
i will try to update with some pics if i get internet access while i’m there- either way it will be good to be on a trip that gets down and dirty- and it will be fun to be able to build something physical and tangible. my prayer is that through our service we will all learn something about ourselves and about God.
