Travel Update – We’ve Arrived!

The Lahash team has safely arrived in Uganda. Thanks for your prayers over our journey here! Our first few days were spent in Kampala getting over jet lag and visiting the students in the higher education program. We met up with Sarah and Golda, two young women who have finished the Lahash sponsorship program and are now continuing their education at Uganda Christian University. Along with touring their campuses, Will and I (Casey) were able to shoot some pictures and video interviews with them to hear more about their university experiences. It is amazing to see them thriving in this new environment and to see how God is preparing them for the future.

The team has also been busy meeting together and preparing for the weeks ahead, which will be full of visits to each of our partners across Uganda and Tanzania and spending time with the kids in the sponsorship program. Katie has been organizing the trunks of gifts that sponsors sent over to their kids. As we travel on to each partner location, she’ll be able to share those special gifts with many kids along the way.

Today, after a long night of travel, we arrived in Adjumani, northern Uganda. Soon we’ll be greeting the kids at Amazing Grace Children’s Home and sharing life with them for the next few days. Thanks for your support in sending our team on this journey. Keep an eye on this blog for more updates during this month, as well as on the Lahash Facebook page.
