Why do we go through pain

W H Y   P A I N ?
Pain is that gut wrenching feeling. Like you've just gotten your breath knocked out of you.  I've felt that pain. Hurt of being left out.  Of rejection. Of not being loved. But here's the thing. Pain in all its teriblenes is necessary. Without pain we would not be able to grow. Pain strengthens you. It refines you, like gold.  So often in life we think of pain in a negative way. But I would like to say, pain is hard. It hurts. But without pain we wouldn't be us. I wouldnt be me, and you wouldnt be you.

It wouldn't be you.

But now, this is what the Lord says— he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; (okay can we just stop for a second. God calls us redeemed. Amazing) I have summoned you by name; you are mine…

The complete and full tale of my Uganda Adventure

Ahh where do I even begine?
This trip has been like nothing I could have ever imagined.
 It's taken me a while to be able to write this post because how do you describe something that your not sure you can even comprehend?
But I'm going to try.

First of all I would like to say that this was  not a mission's trip.
MY cousins and I went down to Uganda to visit Mary, an old friend of the Family Who has lived there for 12 years.


Good water. The water some of the people drink out in the little villages are so nasty. Like I wouldn't even was my feet in it much less drink it.Ok this might sound weird and perhaps a but strange that this particular thing would make the list but I am so thankful for  TOILETS. real sit down and flush kind of toilets.  I won't go into detail about the type of restrooms 'or lack there of' they had there.

Uguanda/traveling/ update

Ok guys so I know I haven't posted in *cough* a while but srly haven't had good enough Wi-Fi in two weeks to even try and look at my blog stuff, much less post anything.

We left the 31st of December 2017 and after a layover in Brussels (ok guys I was in Europe *even if was only for a few hours* but still it should count) we landed in Entebbe Uguanda.
Ok before I go any further I guess I should introduce you all to who "we" are. 😁
I am so blessed to have a wonderful family because the more I travel i realize that family is who you want to go on adventures with!
So there's Peter, Anna, Sara, Joel and, Me;) five of us cousins. And honestly I am so thankful for this little group. Words can't express how grateful I am for this time we have together.

So what am I doing in Africa??
