|Quiet time away|
As many of you know, we had a quick change of plans last weekend. We were packed and ready to fly back to our home in South Sudan until we found out that all airplanes were required to go through the capital city of Juba. After what's been going on there in the past week, we didn't feel comfortable taking our family through so we decided to postpone. Knowing we'd need a few weeks to wait and see how things go in South Sudan, we traveled back to western Uganda where Bethany's parents live and do ministry. Though it is always challenging when you don't know your next step, it is a comforting place to be - in our Heavenly Father's hands and at home with family. We are deeply grateful how God worked things out.
Last week Eli and I were able to leave the boys with their grandparents and take a few days away at a quiet, beautiful place on the edge of an animal reserve. We spent most of our time taking in the spectacular scenery, talking through heavy subjects and praying over different aspects of our lives. Our time away together was everything it needed to be.

On our first night in Kampala we got to spend the night with the Boland family, teammates of ours. We had served together at Gideon Theological College in Melut. They are now based in Uganda and teaching in a Bible College where many of their students are Southern Sudanese.
