Chapter 12 Update #9 - June 20

International Service Project Uganda Team
June 1-22, 2011
Chapter 12 – Update #9

Our team is finishing well! We had a GREAT last day here in Uganda. We spent the majority of the day as a team debriefing what God has been doing the past 3 weeks. We ended our time this afternoon washing one another’s feet. It was a very significant moment in the life of our team.

We visited Pastor Gerald and his family before venturing to the home. You would be very proud of the team. After a night of singing, dancing, and great fellowship we had a time of prayer and the traditional send of team. Pastor Paul & his wife, Margaret joined us at the home for the special send off. Tears were shed, but we were “strong and courageous” through it all.

We came back to the hotel for a very special surprise. The Otile’s had arranged a very special send off dinner for us. They had an amazing buffet set up in their new “hut” where we have morning prayers. We felt like such honored guests. Here we are at the Nile River, a beautiful buffet table set, Christian music playing in the background, surrounded by our friends. It was a perfect way to end our last night here in Uganda.

The team is sad to be leaving Uganda, but they are excited to come home to the welcomed arms of friends and family..

We are leaving for Entebbe at 4 am! We will see you soon!

Thank you for your prayers. We are finishing STRONG AND COURAGEOUS & FINISHING WELL!
