Hi everyone,

We are here in Uganda after about 31 hours of travel and have been enjoying the African experience again. The traffic is crazy here in vans, trucks full of people, Boda-bodas (motorcycle taxis) everywhere, pedestrians and cars all driving here and there. It's worse than Korea!!!

We are staying in a vacant couples' apartment in Kampala, will be traveling to Jinga with our friends, the Thayns, this weekend and will be going to our area of assignment next week. Everybody keeps telling us that we'll be given President Jackson's car since he'll be getting a new one and that our house in Mbale is really something with three rooms, no less. We are looking forward to getting there and starting the work. We met our four missionaries yesterday and they say that the area is already to set up a branch. Just waiting for approval.

We will try and write more later. We miss all of you and pray for you each day. Hope you are well and happy.

Mom and Dad

Heather sent us a link to your blog and we are so excited for you and a little bit jealous. I guess the Lord just had something else in store for us. We will be leaving for Halifax Canada February 21st. Tell President and Sister Jackson hello and we will be following your adventures on your blog.

I love this blog! It reminds me of how big the world is, and the Gospel can fill it all.

I agree with Vicky - take us for the ride of our lives! Can't wait to hear about your adventures, your missionary duties, and see the beautiful country as you will. Love to you at this Joyous Season. May our Heavenly Father smile upon you and keep you healthy and safe.
