8 thoughts on “More Pictures of Pastor Kasibante’s Ugandan Church

  1. Well it took longer than I wanted to jump over to see your blog – but I’m glad I did. The children are adorable. I don’t know how they stay so clean if they spend much time at all in what, here in America, would be considered little more than a shack. No windows, even. Breaks my heart for these little ones.

    I’m glad they are being taken care of and educated, however – thanks to the Godly actions of a few empathetic individuals. Uplifting post – thanks. I’ll be back.

    1. Hello Madelyn. So happy you dropped by JonahzSong. Yes, cute kids. Everywhere I’ve been–Africa, India, Sri Lanka, it’s the kids who steal one’s heart with their smiles and charm. And despite the appearance of their environment, they are generally clean. I’ve seen whole families, homeless families, bathing together from water faucets on the sidewalks of big cities in India. Many of the schools I visited in Nigeria had no walls at all, simply a roof. Many churches in India where similar. Of course there’s not the wide shift in temperatures from season to season as we experience in the upper and lower latitudes. Sadly, Uganda has a horrible rate of adult death and subsequent orphaned children. Pastor Kasibante does what he can, as do those in his congregation. As he is able to get me more information, I will post it.

      Lord Bless, Keep, Shine upon you always. . .

      1. I took a look at your “About” page earlier too. You have had quite a varied life that sounds exciting.

        My father was a military scientist, so I moved practically every year for most of my young life – but only in the US. They kept most of the scientists – and almost anyone else with a very high security clearance – within our borders during the cold war.

        We almost always drove to new homes, following behind the day after the moving van – so I got to see a great deal of America. My father was not one to be stopped during car trips, tho’ so most of my “seeing” was limited to what was visible out the window of the car as my father rushed us down the Interstate. 🙂

        I was an actor/director in my first career, so toured for quite a few years when I was “paying my dues.” I took advantage of each new city, so eventually saw a great deal of America “up close” that way. I usually took my own car, and spent our dark “weekends” (usually had a matinee on Sunday and then we didn’t play again until the following Tuesday nite. I checked out nearby cities too — as far away as I dared, making SURE I could get back in time for curtain the following Tuesday.

        I have now been in every state in America – including Alaska and Hawaii. But my own “international” travel has been limited to Canada (so far).

      2. On-the-road acting, like the traveling country musicians or truck drivers, gets you into the lives of people and their stories. It’s an education not found in universities, isn’t it?

        My life has had it’s moments. Exciting, often. Exhausting, too. Occasionally a bit dangerous. I’ve been through all the States except Alaska and Hawaii, lived in many. Like you, too many States were seen through he windshield, and if I set foot on their soil, it was a walk to the restroom in a rest area. Occasionally I yearn for the open spaces of the Alaskan wilderness. But I’m not willing to travel there; I’m certainly not interested in anywhere with temperatures that drop into the mega-minus range. One day my brother called me from some mountain he and his dog were crossing over, the wind and chill had him very nervous. He said needed to take the dog outside, and he kept the engine running and the windows open just in case the door wouldn’t open again. That said, he loved a small town he discovered that was an old Russian fishing village accessible only by ferry or private boat. He and his wife planned to buy a Bed and Breakfast, but it later fell through. Eventually he returned to Yosemite to open one, and made it quite a success–and had better weather too.

        Having lived in many countries, even if only for short periods, I can say that America is truly a wondrous place to be–even in these days of political upheaval and turmoil.
