Tim time, prison, and choir practice

Last night we had dinner with Tim Taber, his friends, 31 bits, Sean Galaway, and a few other people from NGOs here. The Ethiopian restaurant is so great. We are definitely going back soon! This morning we ate breakfast at the Acholi Inn with Tim and his friends, as well as Pastor Ron and Joy. We talked about how the Congolese women can be helped and we came away with a few good ideas.

After lunch, we went to the prison. A guy named Francisco from Favor of God went with us, so we split up. Angela went to the women’s ward with Joyce, as usual. Casandra and I went to the men’s ward. We both shared. I shared about the Elisha and the Shunamite woman in 2 Kings 4. I talked about frustration during difficult times in life, and how we often don’t understand what God is doing. However, when things come together, it all works out in the end. In Isaiah 38:17, Hezekiah says, “It was for my welfare that I had great bitterness.” Francisco started sharing and his message was about restoration. It was a nice fit.

We got back and went to David’s choir practice. David is one of our drivers and his church is across the street from our house. He asked us to teach his choir one song, and of course, he picked Mighty to Save! Oh man, everyone in Uganda wants me to sing that song 24/7! It took about an hour to teach them, but we are finally home and I am ready to sleep at 7pm!

Tomorrow we are heading out to the portable Bible school about an hour or two away from Gulu. We’ll be there for two nights, and we won’t have internet, so I won’t be blogging until I return.
