Doug, Cullen, Howard, and I took a little walk Monday morning down by Lake Victoria. A few highlights: Birds and flowers. Moses, a local resident, introducing us to a vervet.
|Moses and a vervet|
Our plane ride from Entebbe to Bunia, DRC (where we go through customs and immigration) was smooth and uneventful. Our 12-seater plane was an MAF flight. It was the first time I've been on a flight where the pilot prayed and thanked God for the day and asked His blessing on our flight.
From Bunia, we had another MAF flight--this time on a 6-seater--and another prayer. Our pilot on this flight graced us with a low altitude, so we had an amazing view of the forest, villages, and even militia camps along the way (pictures later). As we came into Beni, we flew over the UCBC campus. What a thrill to see the building expansions.
We landed in Beni around 3pm. David Kasali met us and ushered us through customs/immigration here in Beni. We drove (new car, paved road) directly to the UCBC campus and joined the General Assembly (board meeting). Meetings lasted the rest of the afternoon. Then drive (on the paved road and in the new car--car with headlights!) to the Kasali household--a place of grace and hospitality, where laughter abounds and fellowship reigns.
