Uganda Pictures

I went to Uganda, Africa in September with 6 other people from my church. We worked with a Organization called Connect Africa and met Doc, who runs Wine to Water. They both provide the means for clean drinking water for locals. More details to come. Anyway I just started organizing the 2000+ pictures from the trip and eventually I will post all of my favorites, here is one to start. This was taken by my friend Val while we were on a “tour” of COTN farm land. COTN stands for Children of the Nations, which is another org that we almost went with before we found Connect Africa. It is a great organization that takes in the “worst of the worse” cases, orphans and such. These are some local girls(?), I think there were some boys in skirts but it’s hard to tell. As our bus would drive through different areas groups of kids would come running along the side pointing and yelling “Muzungu” (white person). Well these were some of those kids, when they saw that the bus was stopping they all came over and followed us on out little tour of the field. They loved seeing pictures of themselves and it’s funny because they’d be all smiles yelling “You take!” Then as soon as you hold the camera up, the smiles are gone and they get all straight faced, haha they just didn’t know to smile for the picture. So I have probably 200 pics of a bunch of solemn looking kids, with the exception of a few that figured out that I was telling them to “smile”. All of the kids are gorgeous by the way, all of them, and so happy. It was really uplifting. Enjoy, more to come soon.

    Awesome stuff! Keep up the good work. My wife and I live in Uganda helping orphans. We work for an Orphan Program called Feed His Lambs. It’s great to see others help fight for Uganda! You can check out our blog at:
