The Team is Here!

The remaining 17 team members arrived on time into Entebbe on June 29!   The most wonderful surprise was waiting for us!  Mark, Moses and Emma were at court so in their place they sent the Koi Koi Kids!  They look WONDERFUL!  And, most have grown many inches taller!  We were so happy...

We made it to Wairaka Village to say a big Jambo (hello) and then to Moses and Cecelia's house for bread and fruit as they welcomed in the team!

We are heading to Kagaoma Gate today to paint the school. If we can get online later when we return, we'll load up lots of pictures!
