feeling better after having sinus issues yesterday. The rest of
the team is feeling pretty well, with Debbie’s rotator cuff feeling
much better after injuring it earlier this week. Both Karen’s prayed
for healing over Debbie on the last day of the women’s conference, and
God, in His great mercy, has answered those prayers with healing!
Praise the Lord!
The trip to Mweya Safari Lodge in Queen Elizabeth Park took about 2
hours. The landscape started out mountainous, covered with kilometers
of tea plants and groves of banana trees and then we dropped out of the
mountains into a vast plain as we approached the park. The lodge is
towards the end of a peninsula with one lake to the north (Lake Henry)
and one to the south (Lake George) with a wide river connecting the two
lakes. The Lake George is 65 kilometers long with the majority of the
lake residing in Congo.
We all took a two hour boat tour on the river to the entrance of lake
Henry to the north. We saw many water buffalo, hippopotamus,
and various types of birds. Three elephants and several crocodiles were
also down by the water’s edge during the boat ride.
