The Pearl Of Africa

2 flights, 3 airports, 2 thunderstorms and 52 bright smiling faces later ...

This is beauty,
Lush green hills contrasted by the bright red soil,
The landscape of Uganda alone is breath-taking,
Combined with the smiles on the faces of the people here and little compares,

Landing here is always a breath of fresh air,
Always full of adventure and each time I am greeted by smiling faces of 52 beautiful children,

The smiles, the hugs, the shouts of “Uncle Brent”,
These are the things that make Uganda feel like home,

The kids have grown,
Their personalities are shaping, and they are growing bolder,
My longer hair is now cause for laughs amongst the children,
Which in turn, leads to a game of ‘run and hide from uncle Brent’,

There is always something to do here,
And the days move at a pace which allows it all to be finished,
They don’t drag, it’s quite nice,

There is always time for people,
For fellowship and laughs,
For football,

There is a lot of football,

I’m here,
And I’m bringing greetings on your behalf,,
The church sends their greetings back,

Grace, Peace and Blessings,
