ACTIVITY IN UGANDA...

 
Heading out from Omaha through England to Uganda.
 Dave and I did a lot in Uganda, even from the very beginning portion.  He taught one special boy how to build something for the orphanage situation.  Dave really loved Elijah, and he died just about a few months later for something in his lungs.  Dave has thought of him often, and hopes to see Elijah when Dave is in Heaven.





Dave had me preaching at a variety of places there, and he always told them that I was "it".  As a man he was always drawn to the preaching situation and he always turned it to me immediately.  Can't say I did perfectly, but did what I could.  He also had me teaching the kids in a variety of places and I did a good job on that.  He was taking the pictures and doing a video piece very often.  He was an amazing man then... and he truly is now.   Anyhow, I'll show what he did for me in Uganda in early '91.









 








 
 









Hope you'll smile.  OH, and the place where the roof stuff was so bad is a bit different than we would ever understand.  The church people were there on Sunday, but it was a school place during the week.  Pretty awful to think of what kids were going through.  We'd never agree with that in our nation.

Thank you so much for sharing your story with us from your missionary journey in Uganda. I am sorry about Noah but I am so glad your husband was able to make a connection with him.

There are times when it is the WOMAN who is supposed to do the preaching. A good example is Joyce and Dave Myer who learned that the hard way. Their minister and deacons said Dave should teach instead of Joyce, but he did poorly with not the results Joyce had. They decided if God calls a Woman, then she should obey and preach. Dave is called to administration and he handles the business end of the ministry. Joyce does not take a salary, but her income is from her books and tapes. The ministry has many missionary outreaches too. Thanks for sharing with us here at Tell me a Story.
