aceto gang = I’m going home
Tonight I’m sitting here with suitcases open, packing up my life and a bazillion memories from the most incredible season in Uganda. Hard to believe I’m really, truly returning to America.
Like any goodbyes, leaving the Acholi people has been REALLY emotional. For 6 months I’ve lived here on the ministry property, serving and sharing Jesus with them from sun up to sun down, parting ways with these beloved friends (now family!) makes my heart ache.
At the same time though I’m sitting here reflecting on all these beautiful months God has given and my heart can’t contain the joy and gratitude….So many friendships, children’s laughter, singing, dancing, Bible studies, hands on loving, and of course, the Name of Jesus being taken out into the community!! I’ll never forget this experience….All praise and glory to God!
Brothers and sisters, you have been a huge part of this journey and I can’t thank you enough for your faithful prayers and support! I love you tons and can’t wait to be among you again!!
You may think it’s over now that I’m nearly stateside once more, but think again! We’re really just flipping to a new chapter and gearing up for whatever God has planned in 2017! So stick around….there’s new places to explore together, more souls to “catch others for Jesus” (as my friend Mary says) across the world!
Wanin (see you) very soon, my friends!
