Christmas Ghost Towns - December 30, 2013
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Happy Birthday, Dad!
This week was uneventful because of Christmas. As we were tracting and trying to find new people to teach, no one was around. I learned a little secret about Uganda. During the year everyone comes to the city to work since there is no work in the villages. During the Christmas week, everyone travels back to their village. During the season of Christmas, the cities empty out and become like ghost towns.
So our work consisted of us visiting members and people that have recently joined the church. This was awesome but it was a little bit of a bummer since people we had hoped to see again were not around.
Fortunately, Kennedy didn’t go to his village. Thus he is progressing well. We spent some time with him this week. He also invited us over for Christmas. He served so much food! I am not exaggerating when I say that he had cooked for twenty people. We were there with a couple other people. We kept eating and eating. It was good but I was stuffed.
Christmas was good. I got to spend time with the members and call home to my long lost family.
Even though this week was slow, we are expecting great things this next week.
Love ya all,
