What Isaiah said...

Today we celebrate 6 months in Uganda. We have had a very exciting few weeks. Here are some highlights with some scriptures from Isaiah setting the theme.

"How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the one bringing good news, The one proclaiming peace, The one bringing good news of something better..."
 - Isaiah 52:7 

A few weeks ago we set out to hike up a nearby mountain. To bring that "good news of something better" to the people there.
We crossed the river to make our way up the mountains. 

Teaching people as we journeyed up.

Built a little something to show we were there and then jumped for joy because we have the best life ever!

 “I, Jehovah, am your God, the One teaching you to benefit yourself, the One causing you to tread in the way in which you should walk.” 
-Isaiah 48:17

It was a great blessing to attend the Pioneer Service School December 7-12. The 6 day course teaches one to be better ministers and people through in-depth study of the Bible. This was our second time to attend, but last time we went separately. What a blessing it was for us to attend together this time and in Uganda. There is so much faith in this group. The adversities they have overcome, and zeal and love they show for Jehovah God made a lasting impression on us. We have made some real friends for life, and have many touching stories to relate now.

Couldn't have done it without the generous volunteers that came to feed us each day.

The hot, healthy meals feed our brains throughout the course.

Always happy to be together. Thanks to all who read and enjoy our blog. We appreciate your loving comments and prayers.
