We now have only 2 weeks before we leave for Uganda. Fourteen days from right now we will be about halfway to Amsterdam.
As for what we're up to right now, we are trying to juggle preparation for the trip with all the things of everyday life. My mom is at a cooking school for work until Friday. My dad is also working all week, and I'm home working on some of the projects that need to be done before we leave. (But it's been so stinkin' hot around here and our pool has just been calling my name!)
We received our tentative itinerary from Reuben today. Of course as I've said before all things are subject to change, but it looks as though our ministry there will include Bible studies with the children at Camp El Har, encouraging AMG staff members at their weekly devotions, Saturday programs with sponsored children, home visitation, Dorcas fellowship (with the ladies who run the Dorcas ministry for the sponsored girls of AMG), speaking at churches, and Lord willing lots of time in Igamba (one of our favorite childcare centers to visit).*
Those are the same basic ministries we have been involved with over the years, but it could all change in the blink of an eye. And we like it that way. We just go with the flow.
Getting this schedule has made me a little giddy. For a long time it was hard to believe that this was all happening. It was like it was too good to be true. But now it's sinking in. It's beginning to feel real (which is probably a good thing since we leave in 2 WEEKS!).
We really are going!
*A more detailed schedule will be coming to you soon...
