I’m often asked, “What’s your favorite thing about Africa?”
I smile. “It’s the people. The warm smiles when they realize you’re not an unfriendly “mzungu” (white man) but a person who has come to build a relationship and learn from them.”
Are there things I don’t like about Africa? Sure. I could make a pretty long list of those also.
But the people, scenery, and kindness we’ve received more than makes up for the challenges of life here.
Last weekend four of us drove to Jinja (the source of the Nile) and Uganda Baptist Seminary (UBS) If you are a Southern Baptist, you and your church support UBS through Cooperative Program giving as well as the Lottie Moon Mission offering.
Hundreds of men and women from multiple Central African countries are being trained in gospel ministry at UBS.
During the coming days, I want to introduce you to some of these South Sudanese pastors.
