Throughout the past three days we have been preparing mentally and physically for the amazing opportunity to travel to Uganda. We spent some of the preparation on Hope’s campus, but we are now on our way.
Our group of twelve individuals have become a team as we bonded together and have started to create new friendships. Part of this process happened as we shared our personal testimonies with each other.
We are excited about the opportunities to partner with Sports Outreach and engage with them in their sports and chess ministries. We also have been busy practicing and learning chess, awaiting the opportunity to play with the people we will meet in Uganda.
Late Friday morning we departed for Chicago. After a long eight-hour flight, we safely arrived to the Amsterdam Airport, and are anxiously awaiting our flight to Entebbe. Once we arrive tonight, we will hopefully have a good night’s sleep before we attend church and begin our time with our new friends in the morning. We are excited to see God work through us in the coming weeks, and are very appreciative for all the prayers we are receiving.
P.S. Don’t worry Mom, I took my malaria medication today!
