      Twenty-six years ago in January and February we were in a portion of Uganda that was in the main city of Kampala, a side city of Jinja which is right on the Nile River, and about 40 miles north from that Kampala to what was called New Hope Uganda.  The NHU, when we were there, we saw wonderful leaders and they did some teaching and some to fix the acre area.  We sure met met many.  We were at churches in Kampala and, suddenly, I was a preacher in a couple churches and was teaching kids.  Dave and I did what we could.  We didn't know when or how the Lord would have us there again, and we were there in early September, '94 and back and forth a few times.  Here in Omaha or there in Uganda.  We wanted to be there forever, but the Lord used us in unusual ways.  Just wanted to show a few small photos that are so special re: what we did.  Always worth a smile!  I've put the Word of God on some of these photos when sharing.  SO here they are.   OH... and we've had so many "sons", "daughters", "grandkids" from there.  We hear from them and are filled with love from several.    [AND sorry if I didn't say the words right.  I'm struggling with my dementia brain issue. AND being in Uganda several times was a God-gift!]

The leaders of New Hope Uganda.  It was about 6 years before we got there and they are still connected for these years and have thousands of workers there and thousands from several nations that are giving money and giving prayer! Dave and I love them!

It is a wonderful thing how the Lord leads us in ministry! I like the verse of Psalm 119. Open my eyes, Lord!

Awesome pictures of blessed actions. That type of sacrifice is more valuable than silver and gold. Reminds me that what we do here has an impact on our eternity. Thanks for the reminder, Jo. Praying for you, sister.

The trips and ministry in Uganda are lasting memories, and blessings. Those words you taught went straight to the hearts of those listening. When the Word of God goes forth it is like a sword cutting and dividing the word of truth. You planted seeds, and are continuing to plant. The harvest for some has been reaped, and will continue to do so. Thank you for sharing with us here at Tell me a Story.
