arrival

We got in last night without any problems. We had a 5 hour layover in Amsterdam and found some ‘comfort chairs’ to sleep in. Then arrived in Kampala around 815 last night. A bus and driver were waiting for the Passion team at the airport and we rode with a couple of poeple from Gaba Community Church (A passion sponsor here) and a guy from SixSteps (Passion’s record label) and Charlie Hall and some of his band. It was about an hour drive to the hotel…. the kids enjoyed seeing what we could see on the drive in. It was really dark and there are no street lights. With all the walkers on the street, I’m not sure how we made it without hitting someone!! Ruth was nervous because she couldn’t see our driver…. then we told her he was sitting on the other side of the bus! She didn’t realize that they drive on the other side of the road here.

This morning we’re refreshed and have had an amazing breakfast here at the Serena. This is an unbelieveable hotel…. really spectacular. We have these giant birds outside too…. no joke…. like terradactyls!!!

Ruth is dying to get to the pool so that’s our plan right now. The passion team is hard at work and we’ve met most of the group so far. This afternoon we’ll go to Bethany Village to see a local church sponsored orphanage compound. It should be about a 4 hour excursion.
Pray for our volunteers to arrive safely and for the weather to hold.
