Together Again

We are loving our mission in Uganda. The country is beautiful and the people have been so kind to us and are eager to learn of the Savior's restored church which we are happy to teach!!
One of the best highlights of our time here was when our children and grandson came for a (too) short visit. Families are meant to be together forever and we felt blessed to have them with us and to see the delight they felt as we traveled through Uganda. The sights and sounds were always interesting and even the long trips seemed shorter because there was always something to see.

Seeing each other for the first time in many months.

Here's the first of many wild beasts they saw in country. We have lots of these guys at the church building in Mbale.

On the hill overlooking the "source of the Nile".
We took a short boat ride to see the natural spring bubbling up into the outlet of Lake Victoria which 'they' say is the source of the Nile river. Then we hurried back to our friends home where Ben was ordained by his father to the office of a High Priest. It was an amazing and humbling experience and the main reason Ben came to Uganda.

Happy travelers on the way to Murchison Falls game park.

Big Ben and his dad.....precious relationship. And it keeps the line of authority in the right place, through his father.
