Tonight, Kyle and I leave from LAX at 9:20pm. We will fly straight to London and arrive in Uganda Wednesday morning local time (tuesday night california time).

I wish I could describe a bit better of how I feel getting ready to return. Ironically, as I left Uganda last year I asked myself if I could even return again without staying for an extended period of time. Two months was just enough to start scratching the surface of the culture, way of life, mentality, everything. I imagined a two week trip or something shorter than a few months would be a bit of a painful disappointment. But I was only setting up a wall that would surely be toppled down. Im obviously returning to Uganda just for 2 sweet weeks and I could not be more thankful. We have a few goals and things to hopefully accomplish but more than that I cannot wait to see those that I deeply love and be apart of the beautiful work they are doing for their communities. One of those people would be Uncle Thomas. You can look below here and read up on my last trip to find out more about Thomas and his life living with the COTN kids.

Anyways, I cannot wait to get on that plane and finally land to breathe in the sweet humid air.
I will post here to let you know when we are safe at COTN.

Pray with Kyle and I, that we see every opportunity as we travel to share the deep love that is Christ.

Obanga Mii Gum,
Opio Andrew
