Glimpses of Uganda: It’s the People
Once again, it’s all about the people.People often ask me about my favorite place in the world I’ve been. Some are breathtakingly beautiful, others not so much. Some have ancient ruins, or towering mountains, or magnificent cathedrals. Tradition reigns in old cultures, and modern skyscrapers fill the sky in newer places.
But my answer is always the same. I love the people. Everywhere. Always.
My most recent adventure proved the truth of that oft-repeated reality: It’s the people.
A mere four days in Uganda didn’t get me to traditional sites—like Lake Victoria and the headwaters of the Nile. It was rainy season, though, and the hills of Kampala were a lush green.
I visited with our Life Ministry staff, with the Leadership Team, spoke to a group of lively church women, and to a couple of dozen very engaged university women. We had dinner overlooking Kampala at the home of a Board Member. And I was engergized speaking to almost 100 friends of the ministry.
I loved seeing how a revitalized Life Ministry is experiencing lots of fruit, especially on campuses, with multiplication growing and movements emerging.
These few pictures will give you a glimpse.
What about you? Is it the people?
