Christmas Eve Service »

As a part of our Christmas observations, our church held an afternoon Christmas Eve service. The day itself began with a promise of rain that did not disappoint. When the time came, Christopher and I made our way out to the open-air church building dressed in our Uganda finery. I decided to add some local […]

Jeremiah and Beer »

This morning as we sat for morning devotions at the clinic, I was struck by the discrepancy between what we heard of the village around us and the scripture we were meditating on. Cries of “Ekonit!”, which signify that the local brew is ready for consumption, interjected Jeremiah 50. Pastor Dave began by reading Jeremiah […]

Running in Karamoja »

As many of you know, I enjoy running to keep myself in shape. In the States, I would get up before work and run down my street, along the asphalt road, up and off sidewalks and loop back home. Living in San Diego, there were very few obstacles or excuses to prevent me from my […]

The Little Things In Life »

With a new life comes new accessories. I knew life in Karamoja would be very different from my life in San Diego, but I never thought to be so pleasantly surprised by local inventions or conveniences that would assist in that transition.

We have arrived! »

We have reached Karamoja and our new home! The flight trip was rather uneventful and all of our luggage arrived. We then spent two days running errands around Kampala (the capital where we landed) and Mbale (closest big city to Karamoja) in order to get everything we think we might need for the next month […]

A New Life »

  We’ve known that this day would come for some time. Two years ago, we decided to pursue the goal of long-term work in Karamoja and set out on the course, watching as the providence of God dropped the stones in place ahead of us to form the path He would have us travel. But […]

Return of Uncle Benon »

In case the whole missionary thing doesn’t work out, I may be able to join the hottest action film studio in Uganda.
