Sunday in Soroti, Monday at Sisiyi

Emily, Luke, Jonathan, Nathanael and I visited the Soroti town church Sunday. Had about 30 people in attendance for the morning service, and afterward took a van-load of people 17 km down the road to a bridge across the western tip of Lake Bisina for some baptisms. Eight people were baptized, while the rest of us witnessed the event and sang songs as each person went into and came back out of the water.

Today, Monday, I took the kids back out to Sisiyi Falls, where we hung out with the Sheros last Monday. Enjoyed a lunch of samosas, chapatis, and mandazis (local fast foods), clambered around on the rocks for a while, then went on what Christopher Robin might have called an "expotition" some distance into the drier and wilder bush-and-savannah country to the east. Saw a lot of nice birds and beautiful countryside.

Hi! I just wanted to thank you for the updates. Danetta has loved staring at the pictures!
We have really been enjoying our visit!I think Asher is a little scared of Ben because he is so aggressive. Ex: He loves Danetta and thinks she should hold him instead of Asher.....
Asher is very sweet and is starting to like me!:) FINALLY! I have been very patient trying not to push myself on him!
Danetta suceeded in memorizing and reciting Psalm 107 tonite! Very impressive!
Anyway, I have got to go to bed! Love- Deborah
