After working on the roof for the Kitgum church, the “fundi” crew is now in Gulu. It wouldn’t have gotten this far without Oz, the Fundi/Construction Manager! True Vine Baptist Church in Gulu is working together to lay a new floor for their church building. One more day in Gulu, then the focus shifts to a new church plant outside of Kampala in Matugga. Goodbyes will be said to one another in Gulu until meeting again.
Much time has been spent listening to one another. It takes great effort, focus and attention to not miss any of the soft spoken words in a British-influenced accent. Day-to-day difficulties and circumstances that lead to significant personal and family set-backs are common. These set-backs far exceed what would be mistakenly perceived as insignificant situations. It’s humbling. It touches deep into the heart. The reality of the “one anothers” is on display: Serve one another – Gal. 5:13; Love one another – John 15:12; Pray for one another – James 5:16; Be kind and compassionate to one another – Eph. 4:32; Encourage one another and build up one another – 1 Thes. 5:11.
Time well spent; energy well invested.
