In Kampala

I flew to Kampala today, and am now with my four children after two weeks and one day of separation.  Thanks to the many who prayed.  Now Scott will be updating the blog from Bundibugyo.  It was amazing to fly out over the epicenter today, seeing the white MSF isolation tents like mushrooms sprouting around the Kikyo health center.  Smoke rose from forest-clearing fires, the ridges shone with the diamond glitter of tin roofs reflecting the afternoon sun, and the line of the forest where the elusive viral reservoir hides was clearly visible.  All so orderly and peaceful from the air . . .

Glad to hear you are with your kids. I'm sure you guys can't wait to have the whole family together again. Thanks for your regular updates. I appreciate them.

Praising God for the miracle of the safety and protection you and Scott and the others have been given. We will never understand the reasons for the sorrow of the outbreak and the casualties it swallowed, but clearly God has His hand on you and your ministry for the Kingdom and the future. May your time together be filled with His presence and peace.

Jennifer,

So glad you are in Kampala with you children. That view from the co-pilot's seat is something else. I'm here in Philadelphia with Bethany at the office. Thinking often of you and the family.
