If you've been following us on our trip, thank you so much.

We've been keeping extremely busy. Of course, we are still traveling around doing our bit of teaching. Yesterday, we were able to share at Uganda Christian University and then we stopped by Kuluva Hospital. After a bit of teaching, we were able to walk through the hospital and see patients and pray for them. It was very heart-wrenching to see the condition of some of these folks, but it was so encouraging to see people caring for them and to see their attitudes in light of their situations. I'm sure if you talked to any of us one-on-one, we'd be able to give you a much more personal look into what we experienced.

In our final week and a half, we still have two overnight trips, a decent amount of teaching, a trip north to witness ministry up there, a sports gala, a final service to lead and then our departure.

So the youth workers here are getting every last drop out of us, haha. But we're glad they are. We've loved doing the ministry we've been able to do while being here.

Continue to pray that we would stay focused on the task at hand and not get distracted knowing of our soon return home. We want to allow God to use us to our fullest potential and we need our minds to be all here. We are continuing to build great relationships so pray that those would strengthen and be maintained upon leaving.

I (Kevin) apologize again for the lack of video lately. As we travel around, I get some video but it's often very similar to stuff I already have. But I am hard at work brainstorming and shooting things for our final video. And we've got another interesting video planned to highlight not our trip, but the real life of people here in Arua.

Thanks for all your prayers and we'll meet again soon!

A Day in the Wilderness

Last Wednesday, the four of us and several of our local gang took a trip to Paraa National Park which included a trip through the wild and a journey down the Nile to Murchison Falls. The video below will give you a glimpse into our exciting day.

The journey there and back was not a typical drive. A 1.5 to 2 hour drive took 3 hours either way. This was due to the not-so-great durability of what they call a taxi - a small 14-passenger bus-thing. The tire was taken off a couple times and fixed, and the engine overheated three or four times on the return. And sitting in the back of this shock-less piece of metal was not very comfortable. But nonetheless, the day was very enjoyable.

False Alarm

I guess disregard the below post. I mean, you can read it, but disregard the part about not having a video today. The Internet has decided to cooperate to an extent so there is a short video. Again, it's nothing spectacular, but at least you can see some more of what we're doing.

Difficult Updates

Hey everyone. I (Kevin) apologize for the lack of videos lately. I have one created but the Internet hasn't been working very well the last couple times we have visited. I do want to share what we have been doing but it's been difficult to do. And it is hard to find time to make videos. Or at least make them good. I want to make sure that they are good quality. But I can say that the end video will be well worth the wait. Not sure how soon I'll have it done - hopefully within a couple days of our trip ending. But I'm excited to put time into it so you all can see a detailed overview of what we're doing and how we have been learning through certain situations.

So be on the lookout in the future.

More Life in Arua!

This video is some of the sights and sounds of our last few days. Things have really been taking off and we have been experiencing some great things. Three videos have been posted today so be sure to watch the other two below! Thanks for the thoughts and prayers...

Blind Boys - Sean's Comments

Below Sean talks about our experiences with the kids we meet. The Blind Boys singing that he mentions can be seen and heard in the above video. And there are three posts all in one day, so don't overlook the one below!

Teaching - Sean's Thoughts

Below is Sean's comments on our first couple days of teaching. I apologize about the quality of the video. I have to use a low quality in order for the video to upload at a decent speed. Enjoy!
