|The nice ride we hired to take us to Gulu from the capital city|
On September 1st we left Kampala shortly before 6:30 in the morning while the city was still waking up and began our journey north to Gulu, our next stop and home for a while. We rented one van for us and one van for all our stuff! Though it took about 6 hours we thoroughly enjoyed watching the scenery of Uganda as we drove.
|The boys' favorite part of our trip was when a baboon jumped onto our windshield to try to hitch a ride!|
|This is the house we'll be staying in for the next 2 months.|
|This is a scene of our yard - the kids' favorite place|
We are amazed at our yard here! No joke these are the types of trees we have and many of them are bearing fruit right now: guava, lemon, macadamia nut, avacado, papaya, and mandarin orange!
|Joshua's first pick of guavas, the day we arrived.|
|Our school books all set up|

|A pretty typical afternoon for us these days|
They've also really hit it off with a few missionary families' children that we've met. We are praising God for providing new friends so quickly!
|Another highlight last week: hosting this lovely family!|
|Might have been their first popsicles!|
So basically I want to report that God has been so gracious, allowing us to settle so quickly and easily and giving us such joy to be here. We are really soooo happy to be here. Though there are hard parts of this transition (like missing Isaac and not having him with us) God is comforting us and causing us to depend completely on Him. We still have a lot of question marks in our future but that's OK. It keeps us always trusting and looking to the Lord to guide us. That's what we want.
