Good Morning from Uganda!!
We arrived last night to Entebbe at 10:30 pm. The flights all went very well and we got through customs in great shape. All of our luggage arrived with us and we were good to go. Anna from the African Roots Guest House met us. She had to call for reinforcement for getting us and all our luggage to the guest house. We were settled by about midnight.
Some of us slept better than others. We had a great breakfast, fruit, ommlettes and toast. We started out with Moses about 8:45 am, a few minutes down the road in Entebbe we heard a flapping belt. We stopped and Moses found the broke belt, he called for a new belt and we are now waiting on the side of the road for that. Robert, a mechanic friend of Moses was able to repair the belt. We are now back on the road, 11:00, two hours later ☺️! Praise the Lord for a driver who is also a mechanic.
We arrived in Jinja about 3:00 pm. We stopped at a place to exchange money. We were getting the famine money along with all of our money for hotels and food for the 10 days. The place we were at did not have enough cash for us so they went to their other Jinja office twice in order for us to exchange all that we needed. We also got 10 bibles for the newly sponsored older children. Before we left we got take out lunch at the Deli and then picked up Aaron and Lisa Haarsma to ride to Soroti with us. They were at Welcome Home orphanage where they had adopted their two boys from. We left Jinja about 4:30 pm, we stopped in Mbale for coffee at Endiros and then arrived in Soroti at 9:30 pm. We went right to Fred and Ruth’s home. We were greeted by about 20 BACU children singing songs. What an awesome sound they made!
We checked into Soroti Hotel, unpacked some things and were in bed by 12:00 am.
