The leadership team for Hearts and Hope arrived safely home on Monday evening around 5:30. We had a mostly uneventful trip back with only a one-hour plus delay while we sat on the runway at JFK in New York.
The next couple of days will be spent getting sleep schedules back in order (Uganda is 8 hours ahead of St. Louis) and catching up with our families and our jobs.
Sponsors should look forward to an update in the mail in the next two weeks. We have pictures of many of the sponsorship students and even letters from some. Packets are being delivered to any of the students who weren't available during our visit by our Primary Sponsorship Coordinator, Ronald, and our Advanced Sponsorship Coordinator, David. They will be taking pictures of the kids as they make those deliveries and those will be sent to sponsors as well.
We will also be making new posts to this blog in the next few weeks to share some of the stories we heard during out trip.
Hearts & Hope is a nonprofit organization focused on unlocking the potential of people in Uganda through relationships with people in the US.
