Uganda Uganda you smell so sweet?!

The fan is blowing in my face..
I am laying on my bed exhausted.

But a good exhausted its an awesome feeling.

The kind you get when you have traveled and traveled for 4 days straight.

The kind you get after a long day of hard work of sanding and painting until your hands start to have the forming of blisters.

Yes yes this kind of exhausted is good!

It makes you know your alive.

It makes you know yes yes your here in Uganda.
Where you have longed to be for so long!!

Where you worked hard and saw God provide and provide.

Yes yes this exhausted awesome feeling is the feeling of being here..
In my Uganda.

OK. I'm so trying not to be jealous.
I want to work hard in my Kenya and smell the sweet sent of the country I love!

Many prayers for more sweet smells from your beloved nation.

Hugs from the Haugers, your "African friends" still stuck in Pagosa - for now...
