We missed our flight last night due to airline issues with bags, but we slept in the airport are finally on our last legs home. We are ready for showers and no more airports, but we are missing these guys so so much...

Guess who stopped by the hotel yesterday?!?! REUNITED WITH NOAH!! 😍😍 He is 18 now and at secondary school... He wants me to come visit him at his school also, so I am going to try next week before we come home. .

I have finally plugged back in after a long trip to the other side of the world. Nashville to Chicago to Istanbul to Kigali to Entebbe... then a three hour drive to Masindi. It was on that drive, in the wee hours of the morning, that it finally hit me- I am back in Africa. I cannot believe I am finally here again. Excited. Grateful. Overwhelmed. Relieved. .
The journey was my hardest yet, and not due to the lack of showering, teeth brushing or sleep. Satan has pursued, attacking each and every trip, but on this one, his cheap tricks were more evident than ever. I have NEVER been on a plane before - to anywhere - where the flight attendants came (in mass) rushing to a passenger who was in medical trouble... while simultaneously the plane’s PA system rang out through the entire plane in two different languages, “If there is a medical doctor on board, please come now!” .
This has never happened to me before- not one time. But this journey? Twice. TWO TIMES! On both of our longest flights. So, on a ten and a half hour flight over the ocean and Europe, and again on an eight hour flight over Africa - two different people went down in the aisles. And the first time, it was a young guy on our team. Praise God that each time it was just fainting. Praise God there *was* a doctor on each flight + a nurse on our team. We had a good scare over each, but both people were revived and checked out and experienced no other incident for the duration.
.
Here’s another “first experience,” an interesting slap in the face by the enemy- missing bags when we arrived in Uganda. Generally one, two, even up to three bags are missing in a group the size of the ones with which we have traveled. This time? A total of 47 missing bags on the flight. How many belonged to our team? THIRTY!
.
We have been here over a day and still no bags... prayers please! We are mostly ok on clothes (etc.) because of packing enough in our carry-ons, but the humanitarian bags are the biggest loss! We have been told that all of the bags are on their way to us, except for 2, which have been detained in Turkey for reasons that honestly sound made up to me. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Just for fun, let me give you a small sampling from the Africa packing list. .
* Crisp, clean $100 bills, 2009 issue or newer. No markings, no creases. {Pretty much cash only once we land, and this is all the banks will take for exchange into Ugandan shillings.}
* 100% deet bug spray. Chemical exposure for a week is better than Malaria forever. IMHO.
* A small, personal Walgreens-in-a-box {needles and tweezers for splinters, antiseptics, bandaids and bandages, insta-cold packs, etc} - there’s no drugstore around the corner if you get in trouble! We need every known over-the-counter medicine and all the prescription meds too, like daily anti-malarials and strong antibiotics {just in case you swallow the water while showering}, including two or more of every prescription we already use {like epipens and inhalers for my 8 year old}.
* Toilet paper anyone? I always take a roll or two for roadside pit stops. And by pit stops, I mean, literally, there’s a pit {latrine}.
* Books for the orphan turned young woman I’m discipling over Facebook Messenger- she requested resources on Biblical fasting. I’m bringing her two of my faves. {AND I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE HER AGAIN!!}
* Ponchos in case of tropical downpour. Real rain coats are too heavy in the luggage and too hot on the ground.
* Travel size laundry detergent for sink washing. {You haven’t seen dirty until the end of a Masindi day}. And headlamps. {You haven’t seen dark until you’ve seen a Masindi night without electricity}.
Bon voyage tomorrow!! ✈️ ✈️

Y'all. I am blown away. Someone has offered to host a Nashville 5K fundraiser for the orphans at Family Spirit in Masindi, Uganda. She wants to help us @takeheartuganda give kids necessary medicines and school tuition. *She* is 15-year-old Mary Kathryn Jones, just a kid herself. This high-school Sophomore is dreaming big and working hard!!
_
Save the date! Nashville Greenway / Wyoming Road Entrance... Last Saturday in September! Registration at 7 AM / Race at 8 AM. Lots more to come... Mary Kathryn has God's heart for these orphans - will you consider stopping *right now* to pray for her plans and her faith? Ask the God of the mustard seed to move some mountains for kids in Masindi!
