not your typical cookout

On Saturday evening we had the greatest privilege of gathering together with our sweet friends from the Women’s Refuge Center to thank the Lord for his provision and celebrate our friendship with a traditional Ugandan meal.  It was by far the best food I’ve ever had over here, not to mention the sweetest fellowship!

  3. Oh, this sounds so neat & oh so fun!! The chapati looks good. What is it made out of? I love making home made tortillas, so this sounds fun! 🙂

  4. Thank you so much for all your pictures of the Acholi people, but especially when you get to post pictures of my daughter and her family, the Moody’s, or as we call them, the Moody Tribe. The pictures show the Love of God that my grandchildren are showing to others and it does this grandmother’s heart good to see it and to see them. ❤

  5. Praying for you daily, Hannah, to feel the Lord’s hand on your life! We miss you but are so thrilled to see how the Lord is working. And that chapati looks delicious! Love you!
