A Message from CC...
Hello Church Family!
I find it hard to believe that I have already been in Uganda for 2 whole months,
with just under 2 months left here. I miss home so much,
but I am really enjoying my time here and the service I have had
the privilege to take part in.
As many of you know, since January I have been serving in Uganda.
I am volunteering with an organization, called Watoto, which cares and advocates for vulnerable woman and children in Uganda. The majority of my time here I have spent volunteering at Watoto’s Baby Home. At the moment Baby Watoto cares for 89 babies. Days are very busy and loud, but filled with so much joy. I have never enjoyed being peed on so much, or the sound of been called “Mummy” or “Auntie”. God is so present in the lives of these little humans, it’s overwhelming. The snuggles and squishy faces are scrumptious, and the mini milestones I have been able to witness have been so fulfilling!
I recently expanded my ministry with Watoto’s Children’s Church. Two days a week I have the privilege of travelling with a small team to low/middle income schools in downtown Kampala. Throughout the days we enter the schools, teach a lesson from the Bible, as well as lead worship and prayer. The experience has deeply stretched me... I am learning so much about teaching the word, and interacting with children of all backgrounds. I pray that I can learn and live more like these beautiful children. They live with a passion for God like I’ve never seen, and an innocence and heart that no person should ever lose.... this is what God intends for us all.
Amidst the volunteer work and serving in various areas I have also had the privilege to experience Uganda and its beauty. Over the past two months I went zip lining, on a boat ride of the Nile River, and on a Safari, to name a few. Over and over I have been blown away with what I have seen. I feel the presence of God so deeply in nature and am in awe of His creation, especially the massive things in nature. I wonder how anyone could doubt the existence of God after seeing His creation on such a huge scale. The little things are pretty miraculous too... all of it. I am thankful for a God who has blessed us with such a beautiful planet.
In my time here I have learned so much about myself and my God. It’s overwhelming, in the best kind of way. Some days I don’t know how I will explain all that I am experiencing when I return. But, I’m so thankful for the community I am blessed to have to come home to. I am so thankful for all of the prayers and support I have been given. Also, thank you to everyone who has supported me financially. I so look forward to coming home and sharing my adventures in person. In the meantime, you are welcome to contact me at any time.
I love and miss you all.
