The perseverance of the Christians in Yuvinani is legendary. They stand among the mountains as witnesses for both the vulnerable meekness and the steady strength of the Christian gospel. As such, they have not gone unnoticed. The news is spreading. Everyone on the roof has graciously forgotten the disgrace of my two tortillas.

April 13, 2018 Today was the final day of the Tororo pastors conference. I have to be honest, I’m glad that’s over. Don’t get me wrong, this has been an incredible privilege, but I’m tired!
