Day of Rest (Spencer Key)

  After a “relatively” peaceful drive to Gulu, we have had a wonderful meal with Jennifer in preparation for tomorrow’s distribution of mattresses, blankets, Bibles and mosquito nets. Supplies sorted for the next two weeks, everyone is ready for more rest. And we did get some rest today. It’s amazing how one can sleep while traveling, as Mike declared it, the worst road in the world. We disagreed, stating that it was only band for about 80 km now instead of the 332 km it used to be. I can’t wait to come back again in three more years and see how much Gulu has grown once again. There is so much new construction and businesses here now that the fear of another civil war has dismissed and people are returning “home”. So many of them return to find no home and no family. We travel tomorrow to Agoro, very close to the Sudan border. As I understand it, the distribution site was a safe haven started by an Australian woman as a place where the children could flee the rebels and get a good nights sleep. We have about a 2 1/2 to 3 hour drive to get there. Thanks to all for your prayers and support. Sweet Dreams.]]>
