My time in Uganda has come to an end. The weeks were full and days often long. It’s always hard to leave, but I have to say once I get checked in at Entebbe airport I feel ready to come home. The flight was delayed due to a tire replacement for the front of the plane. I considered that MUCH better than learning that we had engine problems! It’s really something to try to imagine changing a tire on a full plane.
The delay has not put any pressure on me here in Amsterdam. The layover going home is always long and the delay has made this end shorter.
I want to thank you again for being a part of this trip. I have included a picture of the PCAU staff. They are a good team and utilize each others’ skills to help the program and help each other. This is a delicate time for them programmatically. It is their 20th Anniversary and even with growing success, funding is being cut and decreasing. There is still so much for them to do! They remain committed and dedicated! They are also faith-filled people and believe God will see them through.
Two of the staff, new Country Director Mark and Capacity Building Officer Joyce, will be coming to the U.S. as part of the partnership exchange visits with Center for Hospice Care next month. While they are here, Center for Hospice Care will be holding their Okuyamba Fest event to celebrate the partnership. Please join us on April 2!
Talking about the Center for Hospice Care – I remain grateful for their sponsorship of me for my visits to Uganda. Thank you!
