#1 – And she’s off!

Today Lynne began her 48-hour journey to Gulu, Uganda.

Lynne will be flying from St. Louis to Uganda via Chicago and London.  She will land in Entebbe, Uganda late tomorrow night (Tues., Feb 9) at this airport:

From Entebbe, she will take a truck ride through Kampala (the capitol of Uganda)…

…to the northwest area of this beautiful country.  She  will stay in Gulu with the Sisters of Saint Joseph, where she will help build living quarters for clinicians.  The house in which Lynne will be staying has a tin roof and sits beneath a large mango tree:

The sisters warned her that the mangoes fall in the night and wake everyone with a loud clang!  She’ll have to invest in some ear plugs…

Please keep Lynne in your thoughts and prayers as she embarks upon this exciting journey!  She is so thankful for a chance to visit Africa once more.

    By this time you get this you should be there. Say hi to Joanne. Here are some ? What’s the weather ?How’s the transportation? How are meals prepared? What do you eat? How many are working on the living quarters? Where do you get the construction supplies? How up-to-date are the tools?

    We are under 10″ of snow but its warm inside and beautiful outside.

    Anxious for your response.

    Archie & Deb

  7. Iris clued me in by sending an email to which Jim’s was also attached. Have thought of you frequently and hope Jim got his luggage by this time. Eileen and I plan to watch the opening of the Olympics tonight . . . am sure that is not high on your “to do” list as this point. My love to Jo. . .and to you, too. Cec
