Today is such a wonderful day! On Sunday, June 14 2009 a friend of mine and I went on our first adventure to Uganda, where we had the privilege to stay at an orphanage for a month. I can’t get over what a blessing it was to experience such a trip and meet so many amazing people. It was definitely the type of cultural experience I was looking for, but what I wasn’t expecting was how God utilized our gifts every single day. We went in only knowing that we were going to love those kids in the way that they needed. We got to spend one on one time with the kids, celebrate birthdays, make paper beads, sing songs of worship, speak messages about our King, paint murals, and so many other things! Everyday was such a special day, sometimes it would get tough, but still very special.
