Where, When And Why...

Alrighty,
So yes, I am indeed traveling to Africa in 10 days, but the questions remain...
Africa is a very large continent, and I'm gone for 2 and a half months and yes, there is a lot to do there.
So here are the details...
I'm off to Egypt on April 28th, and I'm not going to lie to you, I'm feeling a mixture of excitment and nervousness. I'll be there for 3 weeks working with a couple of Missionaries there in their home church. It's looking like I'll be doing some work with the Sudanese refugees there, teaching some English and sports.
However, nothing is yet ironed out, and for those of you who have been to Africa, you know plans can change. What I do know is, I will be there for three weeks and will be kept busy enough.
After my time in Egypt I'm bouncing over to Barcelona for a week...
I'll be meeting up with a friend of mine who is backpacking Europe. We'll be soaking up the sun, and playing on the Mediterrainian, and playing the tourist role for a couple days before we part ways.
At which point I jump aboard a train to Madrid and fly out to Entebbe, Uganda...
I'll be in Uganda for a good month, (from the 1st of June to the 1st of July) and I'll be working along side Peace Portal Community Church on the 10 acre property in Mpigi. The same place I spent my August last year. The same place I left my heart with a bunch of runny nosed, beautiful little kids :P.
In Uganda I'll be doing everything from white water rafting the Nile to working in the childrens homes, to care and compassion missions into nearby villages.
After a month in Uganda, I hop on yet another plane and travel to Tanzania to climb Mount Kilimanjaro,
after 11 days of climbing and unwinding I fly home...
So home again, home again on the 12 of July.
Let the adventure begin I say.
Thanks to everyone for your love and prayers and I'll be sure to keep you up to date via this blog.
Grace, Peace and Blessings,
Love Brent
