Our team has bonded well over the course of traveling. Gerda is the oldest of us and a great addition to the team. Great stories of her father being a Dutch soldier in WWII, escaping in a factory explosion after being taken prisoner by the Nazis, and living underground during the war. She was our exerciser on the plane! It has been great to watch Cynthia’s story unfold as the Lord has brought her to the point of coming to Uganda. Now that it is coming to fruition, she is taking it in stride and bringing all her gifts to bear on the journey. She wins the I only slept 1 of 21 hours on the plane award! Kathy of course I know from working with her at CHCC as she is now in the missions dept. there. She has been coming to Gulu since 2008 and as a seasoned mission team leader, truly thinks of everything. With the details taken care of, it makes everyone very relaxed. Today we this morning we met up with Diane Mueller again who has been here for 2 weeks already working with and orphanage. Our big story on Diane is that she has bright pink suitcases, so we have affectionately named her Barbie. Lost my sunglasses along the traveling so I picked up a $4 pair when leaving Kampala—-I think I look a lot like Brad Pitt in them. Okay, maybe more like Pitbull.
