Fall Lahash team heading to East Africa

 Fall Travel Update 1 – From Portland International Airport

In a couple minutes I’ll be boarding a KLM flight to Uganda. I’ll be meeting up with Lyla Peterson partway through this trip and then we’ll be connecting with Edwin Angote.

We are eager to reconnect with Susan Tabia and share the 800 books that we have with us. Thanks so much to all of you who’ve contributed to the Book Fund over the past month!

Lyla Peterson will be making her first trip back to East Africa since 2008; I’m really honored to be traveling with her and presenting her book to Mama Susan this week.

After about two weeks with our Sudanese and Ugandan partners, I’ll be meeting up with Jim Anderson and our friend Dave in Tanzania. It will be a whirlwind trip – but I hope to post a good number of updates and am looking forward to sharing our experiences with you all!
