Ready to capture the wind

Today Linda and I celebrated our fortieth wedding anniversary. What a gift from God and a privilege to give thanks for our strong, durable, and blessed marriage. We spent the weekend in Entebbe in an empty missionary house with a lovely balcony overlooking Lake Victoria. This afternoon we spent 3 peaceful hours sailing this little laser boat in gentle winds on the bay. We’re reading a helpful book by Gary Chapman, The Four Seasons of Marriage. By his analogy we are in mostly summer of marriage characterized by warmth, growth, fruitfulness, stability, and maturity. Happily we also have some elements of Spring with its joy, wonder, excitement, and new life also.

Mukanera, a Congolese pastor, has a big vision to reach those in Congo who have never known JESUS or those who had a start in the faith but who remain weak from lack of discipleship!   As he is doing this, he is mentoring four other nationals who live with him “as JESUS did.”  He is one of the individuals we enjoy sharing with, encouraging, and being challenged by his faith during his recent visit to our AIM, Central Region office in Kampala. Thanks for keeping him, and nationals like him, in your prayers!

People often ask, “Do we like living in Kampala?”

I do, but I miss the ease with which we could walk to town to do business in Torit!

Kampala is a real development ground for patience as I wait in traffic en route to town! Waiting is something I am learning to do better!

Boarded the boda…and ready for work!

Our little white house, which is home in Kampala, is only a 15 minute walk to work.  However it is uphill, and thus we usually arrive sweaty at work in the morning if we go “footing”!  So, we have arranged with Emmanuel to come and pick us for work, and carefully transport us to the office.  It costs less than a dollar, so it is much cheaper than starting up our car and transporting ourselves in Western style! Bodas are motorcycle taxis which are extremely popular in Kampala, and can be dangerous on the major roadways where they weave between traffic and take daring chances!
