Our Family Get-Away

Thank you for your prayers over the last 2 weeks as we took a family adventure across the country and into Uganda and back. God was indeed with us and protected us throughout the journey. We didn’t even have one flat tire. (a miracle on some of the roads we traveled) We had a really refreshing time together as we drove from Mombasa all the way to Kampala, Uganda. We stopped multiple times along the way to see friends and enjoy the countryside, and some of the lakes, mountains, and beautiful waterfalls of Kenya and Uganda. We even got to eat fresh fried fish at the Source of the Nile River in Jinja. Here's a bunch of pictures
