People often ask what our trips will look like. Though it is impossible to schedule out every detail of an overseas trip like this there are a few constants. We believe that the most powerful thing people can do is love and project value and worth onto each other. This plays out in simply living life together as we prepare meals and fulfill daily tasks in and around the RUJA home. We find it is in simple, common tasks that healthy, loving relationships are cultivated between our two cultures. Our kids are the object of this kind of love that changes the world. Our greatest privilege is to love them.
Robert also is the pastor of a church in a nearby slum. Serving alongside he and Milly as they bring the hope of Jesus to this part of our city is a common theme of our trips. This slum is home to the poorest of the poor in Uganda including many undocumented refugees from the nearby DRC. Though they have little material wealth, many of these people are the richest, most joyful people you will ever meet.
While we will occasionally work together on relief and aid projects, this is not a primary part of our trips. While you will serve, we can guarantee that you will not outdo our Ugandan family in service. They are the most hospitable people you will ever meet. Without fail, trip takers receive more than they give. Their example of hospitality is something that all people would do well to imitate.
