Today was a much lower-key day for us. First we traveled out to the church that many of the farm workers and their families go to. When we got there, we were able to sit right up front. But very quickly, the building filled as people walked in to the service. A nice, heavy Ugandan rain fell as we worshiped with an unknown number of Ugandans. But I would guess over 150. It was standing room only, basically. It was a very neat experience, and I was just in love with the singing. In fact,today was a special day where the service was presented to the congregation and run by the women. So we got an extra special treat!
After the service, we gathered outside and played with the children and talked for a while.Then we got back in the trucks and went back to the food farm for those who hadn’t seen it yesterday.
After that we went back home to the hotel. I went out with Les Gutzwiller and a new friend, Herbert, and bought a few more clothes. $4 for a pair of jeans and $4 for a nice button down shirt. I’m sure I would have paid 2x that if I hadn’t had Herbert with me.
After a quick stop to the market, I went back and struggled to get onto the Internet so I could start making these posts. Another new friend, Joseph, has loaned me his USB hotspot, and it ended up being my laptop that was conflicting with the Ugandan service provider’s application. But I figured out what application was causing the problem and deleted it. So… Here we are!
Here are the pics for the day:
