Probably doesn't look too different from your life.  We're normal people living out God's calling on our lives.  And there are some days I drive down the road, catch a glimpse of Lake Victoria, swerve out of the way of someone driving in my lane and realize afresh- I.am.in.africa.  And there are other days when it's just life as usual.  I could very likely do the same exact things in New Jersey as I'm doing here- so take heart- your daily life counts. 

We are investing in young lives for eternity:  our boys, the students at Heritage,and the young adults at Kampala International University.  Who are you investing in?  If you pray for us- then you're investing here too!  Don't take that calling lightly.  We need you.
