On Sunday, we had the privilege of going to a local Baptist church in Wakiso. The humble building tells nothing of the joy and worship found within it. From the moment we stepped foot inside, we felt welcome. Even more importantly, we truly felt the presence of God and knew we were among fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. The music was incredible....rhythm is in their blood. The pastor spoke from Ruth chapter one and did an incredible job. 

Later Sunday afternoon, we went for a walk in the local village. Usually school is in session when we take this walk. However, because it was a Sunday, we were able to take some pictures of this private school. As we looked around, it was hard to believe that this was a private school. This school actually has nicer facilities than most government schools.

Thanks for your patience. The internet here has been very unpredictable. We are just thankful to have it!
