January Harvest


Growing up in Canada the passage of time has always been defined by the seasons.  In Uganda I'm learning that the passage of time is marked by planting and harvesting, dry season and wet season. Last week we were back in the David Family maize fields harvesting again. So for all of you surviving another winter in Canada here are some images of January in Uganda.  


 



Uncle Eric, crutch in hand, was one of the fastest workers. There really isn't much this man can't do! If you haven't had a chance to read my previous post about him have a look. His determination and willingness to work is inspiring.





Agnes and Jessica two of our strong David family girls.






 Here we are exhausted but happy with the harvest in one of the fields.  A few of our older family members were missing but we got the job done.  The best part for the kids is the ride home on the jeep.
