Wednesday - From Uganda to Ghana

I have just arrived safely at my hotel close to the Entebbe airport. Tomorrow I fly at noon on RwandaAir, connecting in Kigali, Rwanda en route to Accra, Ghana where Prince Paul Konu will meet me.

I am very encouraged about the results from our 8 days in Uganda training pastors and training trainers. You can see several of our trainers in the photo (Joseph in dark spotted shirt and Jon to his left in off white shirt).

As we began our drive back to Mbale yesterday from Kumi, our driver stopped at a roadside stand. Vendors brought oranges (green n the outside), another man was trying to entice us to buy a live turkey (no agreement on price though as vendor wanted $7.50 and our man only wanted to pay $6).

Then this morning we drove through Mbale for the last time. As you can see the Main Street is gritty with 2/3 world buildings. We have an excellent driver who also loves the Lord. Simon Peter navigated traffic very well, through Kampala.

So I now have the evening to rest and sleep. Then tomorrow (Sept 22) will be RwandaAir flights, and then begins 7 days training pastors with Prince Paul in several regions of Ghana.

I feel grateful and good about the progress in Uganda, hoping for more of the same in Ghana. At the same time I am ready to be home - 19 days away is a long time.

Thanks for your prayers, especially for safe air travel and connecting easily with Prince Paul in Accra.

As usual, Paul, you've penned thoughtful reflections and posted great photos on your blog. Thank you for each post. We are glad you were able to make this trip and smile along with you at the evidence of God's Spirit working through the trained leaders as they trained others!

We pray you will have safe travel from Uganda to Ghana, wisdom in navigating the airports, and God's direction in connecting with Prince Paul. May God refresh you in every way for your time in Ghana. Your presence will be an encouragement to many, like fresh rain on parched land.
