My Heart is Full
It is February, Valentine's Day has past and my heart is full. Not because I got flowers or chocolate on the 14th, but because life is good!
I am starting to see so much progress with the children's outreach in the village. Our village team is amazing and is really reaching the children. On Valentine's Day we went for a regularly scheduled village
I also tried to explain to them Valentine's Day. Can you imagine a group of village kids trying to grasp the concept of showering each other with candy, flowers and gifts because we love each other? I used it as a way to tell the kids that Jesus doesn't have a calendar to look at the days and say "Today is special and I love you" I used it as an example to show them Jesus loves them every single day! His love never ends and it never gives up on us. Bulijo, bulijo, bulijo, bulisawa (Every day, every day, every day, every time). They really love when I say these things in Luganda, even when I say them correctly they laugh and giggle. They think it is hilarious when a big tall American speaks in Luganda.
I got to see Ali, who was back in the village after a successful surgery. We got to follow up on a couple of kids who had malaria the previous week and showed no signs. We got to fight against three new cases of malaria #MalariaBites. We got to dress the wounds of a man suffering through chronic wounds. Most of all we got to spread the love and grace of Jesus Christ.
