The Tent

Not enough words in the world to describe the journey to this moment.

Fort Portal Church of Christ. Worshiping on their land. In the tent.

Of course, there will always be a next step. The church land committee is working towards the laying of a cement floor.

The full length tent will be set up on this floor.

But for now, in true Ugandan fashion, we set up what we can. Meet on our land. And, mpora, mpora, (slowly, slowly) we complete the place for the full tent.

The first morning brought me to tears. Long awaited. Much appreciated. Well received.

Please, Holy Father, be honored in this place. It is truly our deepest desire.

Thank you Glenwood.


How deep our grateful hearts feel love for you.

Hello there! My name is Sarah Beth and I’m an MK in Peru! I came across your blog today and I was wondering if it would be ok with you if I added your blog to my blog. See, I have a blog for MKs and I’m added other missionaries blogs that way other ppl can see what God is doing in your field through your ministry.

My blog it:


Smiling for Jesus,

It's simply beautiful! I will have this picture in my mind as I think of you worshipping each Sunday. I only wish I could hear the voices that are singing their hearts out in that tent! I know that's even more beautiful. Love you all!

Oh Cheryl, mporah! You know to God a day is like a 1,000 years -- that's why the Ugandan's really get God like Americans never will! ha, ha!

The tent is beautiful. I'm begging God to keep it safe and shelter you with His favor. May the worship be sweet and may you savor the incredible distance you have come by just staying with it.

I'm so excited with you!!! Can't wait to come and worship with my family in Fort Portal!! bw
