THIRST FOR HIM!!!


IN MAY, 2005, I WAS TAKING MY  BRITISH/UGANDA FRIEND,
JILL, AROUND AND ABOUT OUR NATION
 FOR A FEW WEEKS. 
 WE HAD MET ABOUT 1-1/2 YRS EARLIER WHEN THE LORD HAD SENT ME BACK TO UGANDA TO GO TO THE SOROTI SERIOUS SITUATION. JILL WAS A TREAT THERE BOTH AT NEW HOPE UGANDA WHERE WE MET AND A WONDERFUL ENCOURAGER AND WORKER WHEN WE WERE 
IN SOROTI TOGETHER.
 
   AND I WENT TO ENGLAND A FEW MONTHS AFTER I HAD RETURNED HOME, BECAUSE SHE WAS UNDER A SERIOUS SITUATION. 
ONE OF OUR NEW HOPE UGANDA GIRLS
HAD DIED OF CANCER AFTER A STRETCH OF TIME AND 
JILL HAD BEEN ONE OF HER MAIN HELPERS. SHE NEEDED AN EMOTIONAL REST TIME, SO HER CHURCH HAD HER COME HOME AND  STRETCH SOME TIME IN HER 
PORTION OF ENGLAND. THE LORD [AND MY HUSBAND] SENT ME THERE. IT WAS A BLESSING TO BE WITH HER AND HER CHURCH FRIENDS DURING THAT THREE WEEKS.

THEN SHE CAME HERE AND I TOOK HER AROUND AND ABOUT THE WESTERN PORTION OF OUR NATION.  I LEFT OMAHA, OF COURSE, WENT TO THE DENVER AND VAIL AREA OF COLORADO, THEN TO THE UTAH PORTION. AND THEN TO CALIFORNIA AND NORTH UP TO THE NORTHWEST PORTION SO SHE WOULD MEET 
MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS -- AND SEE THE CASCADE MOUNTAINS AND BE ON PACIFIC OCEAN.
  IT WAS A TREAT!

 WHEN I HAD TAKEN HER TO ARCHES NP IN UTAH, AND WE SPENT A NIGHT IN THE NORMAL TOWN NEARBY.  THEN, WALKING UP TO THE DELICATE ARCH PORTION, I WALKED OUT ON THE RIDGE AND SAT LOOKING AT THE ARCH.  I WAS TOO SCARED TO WALK DOWN CLOSER AS MANY PEOPLE DO.  SHE TOOK THIS PHOTO; SHE LOVES TAKING PHOTOS NO MATTER WHERE SHE IS.




WHEN THINKING OF THE WORD TODAY, AND WONDERING WHAT I SHOULD USE, THE ONE OF ME SITTING ON THE ROCK OF DELICATE ARCH AREA JUMPED INTO ME.
 IT WAS A BLESSING TO PUT THAT AND 
THE OTHER PIECES TOGETHER.

NOW I'M SMILING AND SHARING AROUND THE WORLD.
BLESS YOU ALL.

How blessed it is to give and receive encouragement with a friend and co-worker in the field of our Lord. Your scripture is lovely too. Thank you for sharing with us here at Tell me a True Story.
