Today is Sunday. We split the team to visit Pastor Darryl's church and
Pastor Butch's church. Pastor Darryl presented the team with a certificate
of appreciation for helping with the water project.

Tomorrow we will head to the District of Apac. What used to be a 10-hour car
ride will hopefully only take 5-6 hours. The roads have improved
tremendously in the last year. For the next 4 days we will have no access to
email. We will be in a rural area. Please pray for us. We will be delivering
bibles in the Luo language, giving mosquito nets, and ministering to the local
people of Apac.

*Below is our expected schedule:*
Monday: Drive to Apac; meeting at night
Tuesday: Iyra Village and Church
Wednesday: Apac Prison ministry; Apac Hospital
Thursday: Another church visit; drive back to Ntinda

Thank you for your partnership in ministry!


today was the last day of our hygiene classes. the last three days were a huge blessing to the team. we learned to be flexible, patient and sensitive to a different culture. as a team, we have grown a lot and still have a lot to learn from each other.

the three day hygiene classes were broken down into a morning and afternoon session. we had a nutrition, first-aid, clean water/hygiene and disease class. the local people rotated through each class during the last three days. each day we started with prayer and ended with prayer. today, the last day we ended with the wordless bracelet. jane and brenda conducted a morning session for the children which included songs, a bible story, wordless bracelet, brushing teeth and handwashing.

the nakalanda island community was very thankful that we came. more importantly, each of the team members learned amazing lessons from God through this community.

please come to our teahouse, we have much to share!
