What has struck me most is the stark contrast you run into in Uganda.
Everyone we’ve walked up to
just wants to embrace you and shake your hand or hug. They are all so
friendly, giving love and wanting love in return. It boggles the mind,
the fact that you meet with the children and their response, when anyone
mentions Jesus, is an “Amen”. I’ve found that the children knew more
about who Christ was than I ever expected.
We met a grandmother trying to take
care of 15-20 children. 15 in her home, and another 5 are over living
in the children’s home. She is living off nothing, really. They are
really self-sufficient, raising their own foods. I may sound like a
broken record, but to see the joy and happiness, and the way they play
and like to love on you and receive the love is just unimaginable. I
don’t think it would be happening in the US.
