Welcome !

Welcome to my journey to Uganda. This page contains links to my journals, photographs and articles that I have written during the time I've spent living in Kasese, Uganda - since November, 2005.

Not everyone is able to leave home and travel to another country. I have been able to do this with the support of my family and all of my friends from around the world. So, I invite you to share my journey and I pray you find my experiences interesting.

During the past four years, I've written several articles, and have mailed monthly journals to friends all over the world, and have incorporated them into PDF files which are listed on the journals link. It is a fairly accurate record of my time, my personal and (hopefully) spiritual growth, and Christian witness. In no way do I claim to be an expert in anything - just a fellow traveler, but one in companionship with my Lord and Master - Jesus Christ. He knows my weaknesses and my heart and I place my trust in Him.

Some Background

In 2004 Bishop Jackson Nzerebende Tembo, sitting bishop of South Rwenzori Diocese, Uganda, came to my church (Saint Peter's Anglican Church) in Tallahassee and I spoke with him briefly about his part of the world. His words, "We just need people" burned in my mind and in my heart. I prayed about it for many months, and then decided to go to Uganda.

I have lived in Uganda since November of 2005, and have been able to work with various agencies, as well as with South Rwenzori Diocese.  I've met many people there who devote their lives to improving the lives of others living in that part of the world, and I choose to live there and hopefully to be a part of that process.   My journals and articles are my effort at trying to raise awareness, foster interest in coming to Uganda, and most importantly, are an expression of my desire to soften the hearts of those of you who live in a world of plenty, in hopes you will share with those who have so little. 

 Make hope in a future a reality, and may their dreams come true.   Mine did. 

Feel free to write and ask questions. I enjoy getting mail from
home, and usually reply within 24-48 hours.
