Blessed to be Free

We'd like to take this time to wish you all a Happy Independence Day. We are so grateful for the freedoms we have in this country, many of which we take for granted.

After spending time in Uganda, we realize how blessed we are to have the freedoms we have here in the US. My mom and I are grateful for the freedom to get into the car and drive wherever we want, whenever we want. I am thankful for my right to receive an education at any level, despite being a girl. I am certainly grateful for the right to receive medical care. And most of all we are blessed to have the freedom to worship and amazing God without fear of people attempting to place a curse on our church, cutting the power lines, or sacrificing goats on the property line to scare us away.

We are thankful for our troops, both home and abroad, who sacrifice their lives every day to make sure we continue to be known as the land of the free.

Happy Independence Day!

- Aly
