Page Eight: The Letter & Recap

05.31.2017
The Entebbe Airport

Farewell Uganda,

I've cried multiple times today. As my last day here in your beautiful country I've been loved well and I'm overwhelmed with my emotions while sitting within your airport. 

I have no idea what exactly my God has planned for my future but you've opened my eyes to things He needed me to see. I've learned community and unconventional love as well as a better understanding of the brokenness of this world. You've taught me more about our God and His work here as well as what I am being called into for the future.

You are the home to many, many beautiful people. Those who are living on the streets or moms praying for school fees to send their kids to school. You hold refugees trying to build a new safe life. You also hold Students of all ages who are learning so they can be the next generation of leaders.

Your lake is big and your ants are many but you hold treasure in your hands. 

So Uganda as I leave you, I pray for your people, your Muslims and their families, your economy and your growth. But I pray for your understanding of your creator. That your people keep loving openly, worshiping freely and spreading God's love. Your church is so alive and my life has been impacted by its love. 

Stay beautiful,
A traveler


It took me all summer to write my Uganda story down and it still wasn't enough time to process everything. I am grateful for the entire experience and everyone involved. Thank you to the Doors Family for taking me in and being open about your stories & life in general. Thank you to every missionary who took time out of their crazy busy schedules to sit with me over a smoothie and some kind of pastry and be vulnerable. 

Now that the story is written, here are the collected pages. Read on & enjoy.
