Rain and All
March 18, 2011
Food prices were high and newspaper reports expressed worry across the nation as the drought continued. Many people told me rain was not expected until June. No one took into account that the Wiens girls were going to be a part of Team Uganda 2011. It seems as though these girls have the uncanny ability to bring rain to vacations, sporting events, and other activities where sunshine is preferred. I guess they are the reason Pam and I were up in the middle of the night closing windows and moving things from beneath them to keep them and the floors dry. I guess Amanda and Sarah also explain the joy in Uganda for the heavy rains that have fallen over most of the nation this past week. However, even in the midst of a raining season, sunburns are still available half a degree north of the equator. Several of the team from Oklahoma have visible proof.

Our evening guests for dinner were 19 Congolese refugees, the Dove Voice Band. Several said that their time with us has been the highlight of their mission so far. They sang, danced, and prayed for the team. They shared two new English songs they have written ... which we all thought would play very well in America. Their harmonies are great and their passion is contagious.
Let it rain. Let it pour. The Lord always seems to have more and more.
