Every Picture Tells A Story: Photos to Remember

Lord, don't let me lose a sense of curiosity.
Lord, don’t let me lose a sense of curiosity.

 

1. Be Curious

2. Say “Wow!”

3. Tell Stories

Those three things are what I mostly do in Africa.

I’m a storyteller.

It’s what I do.

It’s who I am.

I have a very serious job here in the Chadan cluster.

DeDe and I are focused on our Big Three jobs for this year:

1. Getting God’s Word into the hands, hearts, and ears of the least reached in Chadan. You’re already a part of this through your giving. 

2.  Connecting our church leaders to our two Seminaries in Uganda and Kenya.  You’re also a part of this through your gifts.

3. Exploring the country we are calling “Dido.”  

Curious/Wow/Stories doesn’t interfere with the three God-sized tasks above.  They are intertwined with it.

 

DeDe and I are “Up Country” for six days in Karomojo Land, Uganda.

Enjoy these photos of life as we see it in Africa.

I say the Marabou Stork is the world's ugliest bird. Todd B. says the Muscovey Duck is worse. What say you?
