2010 Uganda Mission Trip Day 1, 2, and 3

God's hand is clearly present over our team.  Before leaving, we had 4 people become ill and with the power of prayer, all 4 of those people were still able to travel and are now healthy!  The staff at Delta airlines were all incredibly gracious even when some of our luggage was over the weight limit.  Our flights were smooth and our team is outstanding!  Today was our first official day to begin work.  We went to the Tender Hearts Babies Home this morning and unloaded our many supplies provided by so many generous donors.  The construction team planned our projects, and we went to work buying supplies.  If you have never been to Africa, you may not know that everything takes longer here.  We had hoped to start working today, but the planning and purchasing of materials took up our entire day.  The day was still a productive one.  We held and loved on all 4 babies at Tender Hearts and played with neighborhood children coming home from school.  Julie from Calvary Chapel lead the children in a beautiful rendition of "Jesus Loves Me", then they sang to us many other songs they knew.  The children were so joyful and happy that we came out of the compound to spend time with them.  Prior to our joining them in the street, they were looking at us through the fence and under the gate.  It is hard to express the joy that we all have in being here.  We are so grateful to everyone's family and friends who donated to make this trip possible.  Kenneth hugged me so tight at the airport, and he did not want to let go.  I have cried many tears already, and it is only the first day in Uganda.  I had hoped to post some pictures, but unfortunately our internet is very slow.  I will definitely post photos when we return.
