The News from Uganda

Did you notice the new banner on my sidebar?
It's down to the right, over there - - ->

Compassion International has a team of well-known bloggers in Uganda this week. You can read all about it, here.

I'm interested because our Ronald lives in Uganda. Ronald lives in the Amolatar district, near Lake Kwania. This is not too far from Lira, where the bloggers visited first. This is the area that was terrorized by the LRA for nearly two decades. I don't know how Ronald's family was effected, but I'm going to guess that they have some stories to tell. I wonder . . .

Ronald lives with his mother and father, two brothers and a sister. We've been sponsoring him for almost two years now. During that time, we've received many letters, and we've learned that his favorite subject is math. He's asked us to pray for his education.

He's become a part of our lives. And so, I'm watching Uganda. 

A few of my favorite posts from the week, so far:
Choosing the One You Least Expect  by Emily Freeman (This makes me want to go meet Ronald!!)
Grace at Home by Myquillyn Smith (aka The Nester)
How to End Slavery by Shaun Groves
The Meaning of Life in Three Parts by Jeff Goins
What it Means to Boil Water by Joy the Baker

  1. I love this so much! My sister and husband have an orphanage in Uganda and have adopted two from Uganda. Uganda is close to my heart, you are doing a good thing here.

  2. Thanks so much for sharing this. I didn't know about it and loved reading the posts from the traveling bloggers. This is one of the reasons I want to get a job, no matter how small, so I can sponsor a child. One day this year hopefully.
