All of you either thought we dropped off the face of the planet, or heard that our internet was horrible! Hopefully the second one! But we did journal about everything that we experienced while we were in the tribe. So I hope you stay tuned with us over the next 21 days and read all about our adventures in the bush!
Flying to Wusuraambya was amazing. God is so creative. We felt like we were in Colorado in the summer. The pilot, Ray, pointed out the tribe we are pursuing (Wantakia)—as it is right next to the tribe we’ll be in for a month. We came to the airstrip to land, and there were people lining it. We were so excited; it felt like we were Hollywood stars! We got off the plane and there were a million kids running to greet us! We shook hands with everyone and they walked our luggage and us to our house. Cathy and Andrew (missionaries here) told us that the women’s bible study wrote us a song. So we all gathered on the ground and listened to them play the guitar and sing a song they wrote for us, “We don’t have anything to give you, but you’ll get your reward in Heaven!” Then, they actually did give us something; they gave us some food from their gardens! Wow, what a day. I think this is going to be a great month!
A side note: 4 women from Wantakia (the tribe we are praying about moving to…pray with us!) hiked over to meet us and ask if we were moving into their tribe next?! They really want God’s Talk in their language!! We told them that we didn’t know, we were asking God where He wants us to go!
