This week I have truly been able to see the Lord working in my heart and giving me the desire to be content in every situation I have been in while I am here. I am not someone who can just sit and be still and know that He is God and not be ready to move onto the next thing, but this week the Lord has surrounded me with his truth and allowed me to be able to realx and LOVE the place I am in currently. The Lord has allowed me to spend many hours this week just sitting in homes with people and loving on Gods children while reading the bible with them, showing them pictures of my family and friends, teaching them fun american songs and dances, and just being God to people who are just as broken as I am. Today it really truly hit me that I only have less than 2 weeks left in Gulu. It is heart breaking to know that in less than 2 weeks I will have to leave these people I have made close relationships with and spend my whole days with. I have been greatly encouraged by everyone I have met whether it be in the village or the incredible interns that I have grown to love and admire. It makes it so easy to be able to come in at night and just pour into each other with advice and to have fun after a long days work. I cannot thank everyone enough for your constant love and support. Getting on social media and always having messages and comments of love and prayer is just so uplifting. I definitely would not be here without all the love and support everyone has given!
Also, I hope you are able to zoom in and read the letter I have attached. It is from a 13 year of named Moureen I spend lots of time with and walk to school everyday. She is so precious and it is things like this that allow my heart to crumble and realize that I would give ANYTHING up because the rewards the Lord has already given me have brought absolute pure joy. This letter allowed me to step back and be thankful for the hardships and sacrifices this whole experience has given me because it has made it all SO worth it:)
