Kishanje: A Beautiful Home to 60 of VBC's Sponsored Children
We won't hear from our Uganda team until Tuesday as they are now in the mountains of southwest Uganda in a small village known as Kishanje. Life here is very beautiful and also very primitive - far from electricity, running water or cellular service. This area is home to "The Impenetrable Forest" - one only two places in the world where mountain gorillas still roam wild! Batwa Pygmy people also live in these mountains. The weather is wonderful here - even though it sits on the equator, the mountain elevation keeps temps around 65°F at night and no more than 75°F in the daytime - perfect!
60 of the Juna Amagara Ministries children sponsored by our VBC families live here - so our team has a lot of children and homes to visit in the 4 days they will be in this area. Travel to homes is challenging as it involves a long hikes up and down the mountains. So pray for energy and strength. But these days are also a great joy because we have deep relationships here with the children and their guardians and teachers - it is such a beautiful place filled with beautiful people!
