It seems as though I know you after all my son has told us about his summer with you. When we picked him up at the airport on his return home, he literally could not stop talking about everything that had happened, all the people he met, and doing things with the students, young and older. He spoke to our church on the Sunday after he returned and it was a very moving experience for me. Another thing that touched me deeply was listening to him sing one of the praise songs he wrote while on the ranch. To hear my 20-year-old son singing praises that had welled up within him truly did make me feel connected to him in a new way.
This was undoubtedly the best visit for me. The Art competition yielded more good candidates than we expected. Even though there were not many rules to the competition the secondary [high school] students provided outstanding art and in much variety. It was unbelievable at each school – a different culture at each. At one primary school I was mistaken for Jesus by one little girl. (I have a big reputation to live up to now.) The top 5 students at each school performed a play for their classmates and had people rolling in the floor with laughter. Thanks for all your love and support.
Rob and I served one short summer term with you on the ranch in Uganda. We were with Daniel and Jess’s group. Rob and I married and we would love to sponsor a child. Could you tell me where I need to send the money? Is there anything else – a need – that Rob and I could help with? Just let us know! I can’t wait to be apart of the ministry again!
I often remember my time with you on the ranch and honestly, count it is one of the best periods of my life. The time I spent with you has turned out to be a foundational period in my life where I can look back and see that the Lord was at work changing my heart and drawing me closer to Him. You were very instrumental in that work. Blessings on you and the team you have surrounding you in Uganda and in the States.
I came to ACM to love and help God’s greatest creation. I feel that every opportunity before me was taken advantage of. Uganda’s children, students, praise and worship, villages, their appreciation and humor opened my eyes. Wherever I go in life, Uganda will be one of my constant memories that God exists. I have thanked God many times throughout everyday for bringing me here. And I thank you ACM missionaries and staff for using your lives to help visitors and the African people with your spiritual comfort, knowledge and hospitality.
Praise God for what He has done and is doing in your ministry! I am coming back to work with another mission in Uganda. I will get to work in the North, which is where God has given me a burden. I am thankful that God led me to you first, because that experience prepared me for what He has called me to do next.
