I’ve spent my final Sunday at Church in Namugongo. I cannot believe it! Where has the time gone?
It feels like yesterday I was anxiously boarding the plane to Uganda and now here I am, with just two weeks to go until I return to England. I feel a strange mixture of longing to see people back home as well as wanting to stay here. A few weeks ago, I said my sad goodbyes to the students as the college semester ended. On Sunday, I couldn’t help but feel upset as I waved goodbye to the kids at children’s church. It has been an incredible and challenging few months serving here and I know that church back home will feel very quiet in comparison!
As well as saying lots of goodbyes over the past few weeks I’ve continued teaching at children’s church and the teenage group and meeting one-to-one with a staff worker. I’ve also thoroughly enjoyed having some wonderful visitors from home! My parents, brother and boyfriend were able to come out to see me and we spent the week exploring this beautiful country. God blessed us greatly with the amazing views and wildlife of Uganda and with memories we will never forget. I am thankful for how God kept us safe on the trip and for how he blessed us through our guide and driver, Carlos. Saying goodbyes to my visitors was quite hard but I have now resettled into my usual way of life here! The next couple of weeks will be more relaxed than what I had been used to here at Namugongo but I will be making the most of my time as I continue to meet one-to-one with the staff worker and hopefully with some UMS students too. Of course I’ll also be spending lots of time with my wonderful, wonderful host family, whom I will miss sorely when I go home.
Thank you so much again for your prayers. They really do mean so much.
