As I was talking with my friend Sherry K about Uganda she asked if I had read this book. I hadn't. Then I found it on Amazon when I was ordering something else.
It is the story of a young American woman and what the Lord does in and through her as she "works" in that country. I thought that since Andrew is in Uganda that I should read it. I am so glad that I did.
On one level it helps me to understand what Andrew is facing everyday. I hardly can imagine. I shutter to think of it. On the other hand I am challenged, encouraged, convicted. I cried my way through the book. After reading it, my faith has been refreshed. I find myself hungering and thirsting for more of the Lord.
It comes at a perfect time in our family's adventure. We have just moved. We are in a neighborhood for the first time in many years. I have been seeking the Lord for my new neighbors. My heart swells with excitement to see what the Lord has in mind. I find myself trembling and saying Yes Lord, Yes Lord, yes yes yes.
