Today is our last day in Koboko. We have had a successful week here of ministry and serving. We painted the outside and half of the inside of the compound building. We were able to buy a new solar panel so that Moses can have power after we leave and put up more lights for security. We have been blessed to hand out almost 300 pairs of shoes, the remaining are staying here to be handed out to those when necessary. We have administered First Aid to hundreds and yesterday we performed at a Primary School next door and shared the Gospel with over 500 children! Tomorrow we head to Bugoi which I hear is in the “bush”. Everyone is excited for new opportunities to love and serve the people of Bugoi. We are all amazed at how God has moved while being here in Koboko and can’t wait to see what our next assignment holds.
Tuesday, we had the opportunity to be escorted by the Ugandan police along the border of DROC and South Sudan. Due to the fact that Uganda and these two countries have healthy relations, we were able to cross the border at DROC and buy bananas from the market there. Unfortunately, no pictures were allowed due to safety reasons but they did allow us to take a picture at the border gate. Next, we drove to a place known as “Saliamusala” where a tree marks the point of all three borders touching. The team members had a blast running from one country to the next. It was quite the scene. Our last stop we drove to the border of South Sudan but no pictures were allowed when we got to the bottom of the hill, again for security reasons. Thank you for your continued prayers for the team members and leaders! Please pray for safety as we drive to Bugoi tomorrow as it is a seven-hour journey. For health for every team member and leader and continued endurance.

Tuesday we took a field trip to the two bordering countries. Here we are with our police escorts from Uganda at the border of The Democratic Republic of the Congo.
