Tuesdays with Friends
Joanna Coppedge since our freshman year of college. We were never super close, but she has been a constant source of encouragement to me throughout the years. It was exciting e-mailing her before we arrived in Uganda to find out how to do life with little ones here. But then shortly after we arrived, they returned to the states to have their twins. They returned in January, but went straight home to Arua. I'm really glad they are back on this side of the ocean, with their four beautiful girls. And I'm especially glad today that they are here in Kampala for a week, and then with us on retreat as well!
I'm soaking up as much time as I can with this sweet woman before we must part ways again! Friday we spent the afternoon together with all our six kiddos, Saturday we went for pedicures without kids, and Sunday they joined us for church and prayer meeting! It was a great weekend! Looking forward to more lovely moments together as we serve Jesus and raise our families here in Uganda! It's good to have someone on our journey with us who understands our stage of life!
