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.


  1. Thanks for the update. We are praying for you all. It was wonderful to talk to you yesterday.
    Mom and Dad M.

  2. So glad to hear from all of you on your blogs regarding God's work and all of your adventures. Andrew, we keep up with you and Kerri through your Mom & Dad....but sure are glad you are now updating your blog...Love to hear from all of you and see the photos. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
    Hugs and Kisses and Love to all.

  3. Don't know where the extra letters came from with MAM & PAP. Guess I did something wrong and cannot correct it; but you will know it is from us.

  4. It is always good to hear from you Andrew! We are praying for you and we miss you all very much.

    Lee and the family (especially Lucy)

  5. Hooray! I keep thinking about you guys and wondering what you're up to. Now I know!
    And going back to your other post, did you decide to keep the word team? I think it's a decent-enough word. It has the connotations of support, partnership, one-mindedness, etc., which are all good things. If you prefer family, that's fine, but team is nice, I think.
