Arrival in Mbale

Our 6 hour drive from Entebbe to Mbale thankfully was uneventful.

As we walked into the hotel we were greeted with warm smiles and a common Ugandan greeting, "You are most welcome, how was your journey?"

I am now writing this from my hotel as a much needed heavy rain falls. As people have told me "we need rain, it is dry here." Yet, many walk to and from work or ride motorcycle taxis ("bodabodas"). They will be soaked.

Pray for good sleep and body clock to get adjusted. Pray as tomorrow we begin, meeting with the Ugandan trainers as we "train the trainers." Our material focuses on pastoral care - shepherding, developing caring lay shepherds, and handling difficult emotions (anger, worry, fear, bitterness, etc.).

Myself, Mark Wold (co training partner) and Simon Peter our trusty "professional driver."

In traffic gridlock in Kampala.  Vendors walk between the cars selling their wares; this woman carrying bananas for sale.
