A Taste of My New Home

Well, here are some pictures from my home in Uganda. I have not explored around our village to take pictures. But, these are some pictures from my house. This should help to give you a flavor. Just so you know, this Rafiki village is truly like a resort compared to the surrounding areas (which I will have to capture some other time). This country is beautiful! My home is wonderful as well - it is bigger than my apartment in Florida! I've described each picture below the image.


This is the view from my front door. So gorgeous! The red roofs are three of the orphan cottages.This is the front of my house. I feel very safe. They have never had any problems with people breaking in, but to be cautious, they have us lock this gate you see in front of my door.
This is the view from the entrance.
Here is my living and dining room.
This is again from the entrance hallway. You can see the back door that is gated and my bedroom on the right.
This is my room with my princess bed - otherwise known as a mosquito net :)
This is the second bedroom.
This is the view from my backyard. The children play soccer on a field to the left. You can see a trail that one of the missionaries has cut to jog and walk on.
This is my neighbor's backyard and home.

Maybe it's just all the green and the red roof, but it reminds me of the place we stayed in Tuscany.

Andrea,
Your front garden is so beautiful! It reminds me of an English garden. I imagine you walking out your front door in the morning with the freshness of a new day, the sparkle of dew on the flowers. Knowing that your relationship with God is fresh and new every morning and sparkling with his love. Praying for you, Lynda W.
