    Well every day of preparation is difficult Elizabeth, I know God will use every bit of it. You will be such a blessing to Bishop Johnson, Sandra Earixson, Dr Katie, and especially to God’s people of the Diocese of northern Uganda. I’m excited that you are committed to blog. It will allow us to walk alongside of you in a small way on this journey.
    God bless you as you serve Him

    Good Morning Elizabeth
    It was great to see you so happy and at peace. I loved listening to your speech at Sunday school. I think about your words daily, how so blessed we are living in the USA. Even though I knew it already from all the times my mom told me “eat yor dinner there are hungry children in the world who don’t have food every night”. I feel it now more . I think of you all every time I turn on the water or go to the store to buy something “I really need”. I am waiting on the Lord every day also to show me how he wants to use me also as so many of us are. It’s the quiet when he speaks the loudest, I wish he would turn up the volume on these old ears. So bless you for hearing and listening to his call and the Angels are ringing a bell everytime you give a bible to our dear brothers and sisters. Much love and good health to you all.
