Developing character....not comfort! It's not about me....God's glory!
Nathan is one of the staff at CURE Children's Hospital of Uganda, who works in the OR. We have become dear friends....brother and sister in Christ! His family is delightful...they open their home to their own three sweet children plus cousins and other children at risk in their community. They are so hospitable! Life is hard for Nathan and his wife, Lornah. They have made many sacrifices to care for the little people of their community Namutela.....it is called a slum area as the living conditions are very rustic, crowded and poor. Nathan and Lornah love the Lord so much! He plays the keyboard most Wednesday mornings for staff Praise and Worship time.
These are precious men of God. I count it a privilege to call them friends and brothers! I think they call me Jaja or Mama as I am a grandmother and mother......I am considered OLD by Ugandan standards! We enjoy tea, cassava chips, good conversation and lots of laughs together! I am so excited to introduce my GO Team to these dear ones.....and there are plenty others to tell you about.
For our present troubles are small and won't last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 2 Corinthians 4:17 NLT
