The Hearts and Hope mission is checked into the Sunset Hotel in Jinja, after a long day in the village of Kainagoga. We left the hotel in Kampala around 9:00 and went straight to Kainagoga for worship.
Pastor Chuck preached (thank goodness he carries a file of sermons!) and did an amazing job of washing the kids' feet as he talked about how much God does for each of us - only because He loves us - and how He wants us to do the same for others. It was a precious experience for the little girl; she even got some Starburst and a new wash tub out of the deal!
We had the chance to make bracelets with the women today. Each bracelet has at least one cross charm. We wanted the women to be reminded anytime they wear that bracelet that God loves each of them so very much! It is always fun to spend time with the women alone and give them some undivided attention.
We also did a quick thumbprint project with several of the kids and then it was on to lunch. Afterwards, we took lots of pictures and played with the kids.
We are getting ready to spend the evening talking about our day and making plans for the rest of the week. Please continue to pray for this team and for the work that lies ahead. We will be going to Nakabango tomorrow. On Thursday, we will return to Kainagoga to hand out packets to the sponsored kids there.
One note - we had one supply bag that did not make the trip. It should be on the flight tonight and be delivered to us in Jinja tomorrow. Prayers for those supplies to arrive are appreciated as well!
