I am living and working in Uganda with Amazima Ministries, but my eyes are set on eternity.

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. (Colossians 3:1-4)

I love my parents!

My parents came to visit a bit back and it was really nice to show them what life is like for me over here.  They came for about 10 days and we stayed busy the whole time.  I wasn't able to take off the whole time they were here, but they were more than willing to accompany me while I did my work and were so patient.

It was a whirlwind of a tour.  It was my goal to show them as much of Uganda and my life/work here as possible.  We were also able to go on Safari the last couple days of their time here which was a first for us all.

Here is a list of some of the things I was able to show them
-Masese Women's Group
-Masese Co. Primary lunch program
-Jinja Central Market
-Sponsorship Saturday Program
-Lumber yards, welder's shop, craft shops, and posho mills
-My house
-Amazima Office
-Several of my favorite places to eat (including Ethiopian in Kampala)
-Katie's house and family
-My church
-Amazima Playground and Farming project
-Rhino Sanctuary
-Murchison National Park

They brought me tons of goodies as well.  You know your parents love ya when they come with 4 suitcases of stuff for you and pack all their clothes in their carry-on bags.  They brought tons of food as well as some random things like guard dog warning signs and animal ear tags.

God blessed me with incredible parents and I am so thankful for how supportive they have been, not only with my move to Africa, but in everything I have done.  I love you mom and dad and thank you for helping shape me into who I am today  It was their faith and love for our Savior that stirred my heart in the same direction.  I can't be more grateful! 

 I didn't get many pictures of the random day to day stuff that we did, but here are a few of our trip up to Murchison.

 Can't wait for them to come again (my parents not the hippos)
