Africa Trip, Part 7: Worship, Connect, SERVE!

We arrived at the Jinja Full Gospel Church on Sunday morning, and I have to say that I was quite excited about going to church. In fact, it was one of the things that I was looking forward to on this trip...sitting in church. I've missed a few services over the last three years and that's okay, but I thought this would not be an issue in Africa. I was wrong!

Go read Sumer's post here to hear how we "taught" Sunday School in Uganda. It was quite a hoot, and she forgot to mention the chickens that were walking around behind the children or maybe she didn't notice them, but I did. In fact, if I were a true southern baptist...I would have counted those chickens in attendance;)
I have to say that this was one of my favorite moments on the trip. It seemed so funny that God would bring us all the way to Uganda to do what we do every week. But in that moment I knew that God didn't want me anywhere else but standing on a concrete ledge with just a few children "teaching" Sunday School.

This is the song they taught us:
