Hello Uganda!! :)

Hello from Uganda!! I made it safely! All flights and connections went great! Today, was a recoup day for me... so I spent most of the day unpacking, resting and and getting used to Africa!! My friends Grace and Britt (both from Arkansas)and I went into Jinja and looked at shops filled with beautiful earrings, necklaces, bags, and paintings! I had my first boda ride (bodas are motorcycle taxis) It was a blast!! :) This afternoon I spent my time playing with the babies and toddlers. I got my first, "I love you Auntie Mariah" with made my day!!

I am feeling really good despite the jet lag. I'm not too tired which is surprising since I was up for about 33 hours!!

I will give you more of an update in the next few days after I get adjusted to my schedule and have a little more to share. Thank you all so much for your prayers!!

Love you all!

Hello Mariah! We are super happy that you arrived safely! How exciting that we get to keep up with you on here!

Lydia and I just prayed for you and those precious babies! :) We know that God will use you mightily!

"We will pray for you everyday and after we do everything. We will pray for you in the morning and every time. I love you more than the toys I play with." (words straight from Lydia)!

We will continue to pray and we love your heart and what God is doing as you obey His will!!
