More on Kampala

Locks, locks and locks. I have more keys in my bag than I have ever had in my life. A key to every room in the house, the garage, the doors, the gate. A couple of weeks ago, I refused to go out – acting as though I was a prisoner! However, God used that experience to remind me that I have the keys and that there are areas of my life that I live as though the door is locked, yet He has set me free.

A drive down a modern divided highway may include the following sights – a naked man (fortunately going the same way I was), a RAV4 pulled off on the side and people removing a live pig in a sack from its boot, cows crossing willy-nilly, bicycles with passengers and motorcycles going in any direction – literally!

Just getting my blogging hat on – so these are just some thoughts from the day.

Blessings on your day.

Blogging Beginnings

Image130 Living in Kampala has been an experience that I had hoped wouldn’t happen. I considered Fort Portal the almost perfect location – good weather, not too hot nor too cold and mountains when the dust doesn’t obscure them. However, for at least the next 1 1/2 years I will be here in Kampala or nearby in Mukono attending classes for a master degree in Divinity at Uganda Christian University.

For those who have followed the vehicle story, the Pajero – mission vehicle extraordinaire has been replaced by the above new mission vehicle called Noah! To God be the glory. It will be exciting to see what plans he has for this vehicle.

Blogging is going to be an interesting task – the biggest question is does anyone really read these things?

Blessings on your day!
