From Kampala to Gulu, Uganda Day 2

Yesterday (Tuesday) we traveled from Kampala to Gulu. It took about 4 hours. We crossed the Nile River. We saw baboons on the side of the road! Needless to say it was a very interesting trip across Uganda.

After arriving at our “hotel” we had dinner (chicken and chips or chicken fried rice). They have a drink here I think is really good called Navita. It’s a carbonated pineapple juice drink in a bottle. Several of us had that with dinner. After eating we headed out to do some much needed walking through the town of Gulu. It’s a fairly large city that I would describe as a step down from Kampala. The war that ravaged northern Uganda for years has left city’s like this behind in terms of much progress. But it’s a nice place. It was good for all of us to get out and take in the sights, sounds and smells.

After a night of little sleep (loud music, heavy rain and dogs barking!) we are up and ready for day 3. This morning after breakfast we will meet Jamie who works with Four Corners Ministry. She has several interns from Auburn University who are here for the summer. We will be partnered with them to go out into the community and help the locals. Should be interesting.

Praying today for God to fill our hearts full of his love as we interact the people here.
Thank you for your prayers!

From Uganda,
Rusty and team

    Way to go Rusty. Happy to hear that y’all still have your JOY about you. Glad that you made it over there okie dokie, didn’t get mugged by the baboons or blown away by a misguided carbonated drink cap.
    We are really proud of your commitment to leading people to know and serve Jesus, even when it a takes you around the world to get there.
    I’m certain that you can see the hope in their eyes upon your arrival.
    Travel well, be well, stay well, and return well.
    Thanks for the update,
    dennis
