More than 24 hours awake and travelling can’t diminish the joy of being back where I belong.

In worldly terms the opulence of Puerto Banus, Spain can’t compare to the dirt, poverty and need of Kabale, Uganda. But I’d rather be back here in Uganda than sitting in the luxury of Marbella.

And in the 24 hours of travel and the 24 hours since I returned from a couple of weeks paid work in Spain there have been many reasons to praise God. Including….

  • The opportunity to talk to the passenger next to me on a long flight about what we do, why we do it and how much God longs to be back in relationship with her. And the wonder of being able to pray with and for what had been a complete stranger.
  • A record harvest in the Passion for Africa orchards – 995 kg this week
  • A warm welcome back for the boss (me apparently) from our workers – including a chicken, rice and matooke meal
  • Akampurira from Kahama (now housed in the J10:10 House with two of his siblings) who couldn’t wait to show me how well he is now walking. They said he would never even stand up…….BUT GOD!!!!!
  • A weekend with the wife I adore and hate being apart from
  • Time spent with the wonderful Michelle who adds new movement, new sounds, new recognised words and associated actions, new hope and new joy to her life and ours every day

A busy last week of the second school term ahead – plus time in Kigazi, Kahama, Kabale and our orchards – and all with my Saviour, brother, friend and Lord Jesus. I love the life that He has given me. Thank you Lord.
