Pastor Charles Update from Uganda

It was a great day.  Almost everyone has fallen into bed exhausted.  I finally took a cold shower when given the chance to get clean.  After less than three hours of sleep, some from our team led chapel at the school at 8:00 a.m. this morning, and we were all warmly welcomed by the children (with big hugs and ear-to-ear smiles).

After that I was asked to address a group of pastors as S.O.S. closed a two-day pastors’ conference.  I encouraged the men from Joshua 1. All day we visited classrooms and led activities or played with the kids at the academy.  We hosted a field day with great games on the lawn.  Squeals of delight all afternoon!  Lunch was prepared by the school staff on an open fire (there is no kitchen).  Beans, plantains, and something like grits were tasty and served with love.

Late afternoon took us into the villages for door-to-door outreach.  Tomorrow holds athletic outreach for men and agricultural outreach for those from the surrounding area whom we personally invited today.

There is much poverty, much family disintegration, and much sadness after AIDS has ravaged many of the husbands and fathers around here in recent history.

But our great God is at work and S.O.S. shines exceptionally brightly against such a spiritually dark backdrop.
