Not me, no thank you.
Yesterday was what we called our "vacation day." Tim and Genessa had found a resort that was located on this little island in the middle of the Nile River. It truly is this hidden gem tucked away. The only way to get on the island is by a canoe. For $15/day you can use the resort's amenities and hangout for the day. Otherwise it costs $500/night! So we opted to go with with the value package and just hang out during day time hours.
We spent the day eating good food, relaxing, swimming, and just enjoying the company of good friends. It was truly paradise on the Nile.
It has been refreshing and comforting to be able to spend the week with good friends that are like minded. As we have spent time watching their new lives evolve in Uganda, I am so proud to call them our friends. They have truly learned a new culture and are doing their best to fully immerse their family in it. It can be exhausting and isolating to have to make so many cultural changes with out having a team of people alongside them...but they have made transition after transition so gracefully. It reinvigorates me to see how God will give such grace and favor when we walk according to His will. Their actions of obedience are certain to bear much fruit as they continue to serve in Uganda.
