I am blessed as I look back on October…it was a month FULL of blessings and deep, deep filling. The Lord, in His goodness, gave my parents and our family such a special month. When looking back at all of the pictures, I can hardly believe we were able to do so much in a short five weeks. I LOVE that my parents entered fully into our crazy life here in Uganda…A life we are so deeply thankful for, and a place and a people that are capturing our hearts. I may be mistaken, but I think this place may have snuck into my parents’ hearts as well!! Here’s a glimpse of some of the amazing things we got to do together. IT was a time of joy and laughter, and partnership, and work, and play, and cooking and eating, and exploring…of loving and serving, and growing together. I am so so thankful.
WE LOVE TO CELEBRATE!!!
