After a full week of work at the church and in the village, we got a little break to check out the area. Our wonderful hosts took us to Sipi Falls up on Mt. Elgon. It was so nice to get out and do even a small amount of hiking.
On our last day out in the village, we saw the church officially begin with their first service. The place was packed! There were also at least 200 kids there. The youth group dressed up acted out stories from the Bible to keep the kids entertained.
Not really sure where this scene is in the Bible….
On our last day in Uganda, we had the opportunity to visit a slum in Mbale. In this area we saw the poor of the poor. The homes are in tight quarters, there’s trash and waste everywhere, and many of the people are alcoholics. But it was awesome to be able to talk with them and give them hope.
I didn’t take many pictures there, but this really jumped out at me.
