Since 2002, I have had the privilege of traveling around the world, teaching (the mostly uneducated) people how to read and study the Bible for themselves AKA The Bible is an Elephant. This journey has included over a couple dozen trips to Uganda where I have invested an unknown amount of my personal heart, energy & time into the different cultures that make up the Republic of Ugandan. Recently, the Berean Way has been focused on East Asia, but today I find myself with the opportunity to return. I am so excited!!
This will be a short trip over 8 long days. Please pray I will be able to accomplish all that I feel called to do during this time including: visiting Lil Storm's orphanage, living with my friends at Kirabo Seeds & teaching them The Bible is an Elephant, retracing our adoption steps and meeting with all the main players (both the helpful and those who made Erin's life difficult.) I desire to let everyone know that Andrew is healthy, is loved by his family and that we talk about Uganda with him all the time.
As many of you know, 4 years and 1 day ago, a tiny little boy was awakened from a deep, sweaty sleep and handed over to my Smoking Hot wife. And he has been a Valdes every since. Prior to that, the people of Loving Hearts Children's Home in Uganda initially cared for our son for twelve months. I get to return and thank all of them in person.
Time is a relative concept in Uganda, so as I readjust my brain's sense of time, I realize that the relationships I have made over the years will get a chance to be rekindled.
Please stay tuned as I plan on daily updating this adventure and I long for your prayers.
In Christ - Jeff
