I am sorry that I haven't posted anything in a long time, so much is going on and so much is changing...

Life in Uganda is sometimes overhelming, a little while back I kept feeling so exhausted and thinking about how sometimes I would like to just live a "normal" life. Go back to the states and work at Starbucks or the zoo or a pet shop (to anyone that doesn't know, I love animals). Then one day I sat down and thought about it. What it would be like if I actually didnt live in Uganda, if I didnt work with street kids and have 22 amazing kids of my own, and it just broke my heart. I couldn't imagine it. I told God I was sorry for letting my moments of tiredness make me not appreciate the incredible jewels that God has entrusted me with. I wouldn't trade my life for anything, ever. I don't deserve it, but God has given me the grace to do what I do.

God is good, all the time. And all the time, God is good. I will write more again soon.



  1. Every soldier needs a chance to put down his gear and weapons in order to rest. As a classroom teacher, I can relate to your descriptions of weariness. May the Lord continue to uphold you in your works for His kingdom. Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus and He will give you the strength and grace needed to complete His mission through you.

  2. Thank You for what you do! Thank You for giving my "Heart Boy" Umaru a home off the streets and the 22 others! Thank You for your ministry to the street kids! And to the ladies! I pray for you and ask that God will renew you. God Bless You! Janet
