Scenes from Light and Life Free Methodist Church in Jinja, Uganda (Trip 2014)

I travelled to Uganda on Feb. 10-24, 2014.  My last trip was in 2012. I had a wonderful time reconnecting with the Jinja bead makers and working at the Light and Life Free Methodist Church.  I travelled with a team from Janesville, Wisconsin, led by Joy Ngobi, founder of Hope Institute of Uganda.

Joy Ngobi oversaw the disbursement of 2 containers of medical equipment donated by 3 hospitals in Wisconsin. I worked with the bead makers helping with product development and design, as well as sharing spiritual encouragement and Bible teaching at the church.

I also went to Kenya for a few days to visit with the Free Methodist Bishop and his wife, Neddy, and met the widows that make the bone jewelry I have been selling.
