Safe and Sound

We are alive, and extremely sorry for being out of communication. Our internet connection here has been patchy and our solar panel won’t charge our team computer. That being said, we should be posting once a week from now on out, Lord willing. We figured this first blog in Karamoja should give context and setting to our story here. We are living in a house in Kotido, Uganda in the region of Karamoja on a team of 10 people including children. Kerri’s sister Kristi and her husband Kenneth are on the team and they have four children with one on the way (due this week). The children’s names are Nevaeh, Ezra, Zion, and Israel. Also on the team are two single girls, Kelly and Chloe. The whole team lives in the same house. Currently we are focusing on getting our house set up and getting settled. Up next on the agenda will be supporting Kenneth and Kristi as they welcome their newest child into the world. Then we’ll be starting language classes and figuring out in what ways we’ll be supporting Shalom Reconciliation Ministries, which is the organization running the orphanage we’ve been helping support from the U.S. That’s about all for now, if you guys have any questions or any requests for how this blog should take shape let us know.

P.S. Just wanted to give you guys a practical overview of what life here looks like. Next week's blog should be substantially more interesting.
