The weeks seem to fly by here and before I know it another one is gone. Here are a few moments from last week. On Sunday we hosted a doctor from Northern Ireland who is working at Kiwoko hospital. It was fascinating to hear of his plans of developing a medical work in Goli, a town on the border of the DRC in north western Uganda. He had also treated I.'s brother (see last post) and was able to update us on his condition.
Monday and Tuesday were the last two days of our staff wide training days called Envisioning. We were blessed and challenged by our speaker Brian Watts, a pastor from Langley B.C. So much to think and pray about as we begin another year. Tuesday afternoon David and I went to Kiwoko hospital to pick up I. and his brother and mother and take them home. R. needs heart valve surgery desperately. Before leaving we gathered outside their tiny mud home and prayed for this situation which is beyond our understanding.
Thursday was also a chance to sample a local delicacy 'flying ants.' Pictured here are the Hope family children snapping up the goodies. Christina captured one for the camera before she and Catriona consumed them.
