Africa We Miss You

Logan and I have both had the opportunity to spend time in the beautiful Continent of Africa. An African sunset is unlike any other and we miss them very much.

Logan was called to serve in the Uganda Kampala Mission. He started in the MTC in South Africa and then moved up to Uganda where he spend 18 months of his mission serving the people and falling in love with Africa. He spend the last 6 months in Ethiopia where the church was still young and growing. The people of Uganda and Ethiopia were so lucky to have Logan as a missionary. He loves the Lord so much and had an amazing mission because of it.
Logan in front of a church in Ethiopia. The Ethiopian Language is crazy and makes no sense to me, but he seems to understand it.

Logan carrying water for some children. What a wonderful guy:)

Where's Logan? Can anyone find him? All the children loved Logan.

This picture is my favorite. A baptism in Ethiopia. You can tell that the spirit is so strong just from the picture. Logan accomplished so much on his mission and changed so many lives. His mission will forever bless our lives.

I began my journey in Africa with an NGO call Help-International. I lived in a little town in Uganda called Lugazi. We built energy saving stoves, built square foot gardens, worked in orphanages, did aids awareness, and taught business concepts. In the 4 months that I spent there we traveled all around Uganda and spend a week in Rwanda. It was one of the best experiences on my life. I learned so much about the world and about myself.

During a trip to Gulu in Northern Uganda I met this little girl. Her smile was priceless.

Teaching a P4 class. The lesson was on "What do I want to be when I grow up"

The Great African Rift. This was the hardest hike of my life, but it was covered in beautiful plants and waterfalls.

The best part about going to Africa is that is really connected Logan and I. We have such a passion for that beautiful place and the amazing people who live there. I find that we talk at least once a week about how much we miss it and when we are going back. Africa we love you and miss you and will return soon.
