New Place

Today we moved to a new place to stay.  We are staying with a retired missionary family.  They have a duplex and are letting us stay in one half of the home.  The family is Ellen and Herb Cook.  There is a cook that will make 3 meals a day.  The best part: there is a washing machine.  It is nice to get settled in before Chad leaves with our 2 muzungu children.  The family also has a dog named Roxy.  Sadie and Nolen have loved getting to play with Roxy.  Nolen even asked if Roxy could sleep with him.  However, Hadley and Liana are terrified of her.  They have never been close to a dog before and find her very scary.  Hopefully we can use this time to get them used to dogs since we have 2 at home.

It has become evident to me that the next few weeks is my time to be still. 

Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted among the earth.
This is my time to let God do His work.  I need to wait on Him to finish what He is doing with my family in Uganda.  I want dearly to come home.  But even more I want to do what my God has called me too.  I am not yet sure what else He has in store for me here.  It might just be time for me to spend with Him, uninterrupted by the everyday life in America, it might be to share my story with you, I might find a mission opportunity to work on, or I might not ever know.  These are all things that I am coming to terms with as I enter the beginning of my 7th week in this beautiful country.


  1. Praying for you and thinking about you daily! :) God has great things in store for you. Thanks for your faithfulness. It is an encouragement to me.

  2. Wow. I'm just catching up with you all today, but keep praying for you all. I can't imagine how much you must want to come home, but what a precious time of bonding with your girls that will never take place again. What a ride. Your faithfulness and godly outlook is so incredible. Take care -- you'll be home soon.
