OKAY, SO WE ARE HERE SAFE! Even after two stops, one in turkey which was planned and another in Rwanda which we weren’t aware of, it was a very long flight but we made it – even if we did lose one case on the way! Some of us went to church this morning which was joyful and a great experience however with most of us getting only a couple of hours sleep it’s safe to say we didn’t make it through the whole of the service.
It feels so surreal being out here, having the people treat us like we are royalty and being so loving and friendly. We have all settled really well and already have starting having a strong bond together as a group. Tomorrow is our 1st day at Acholi, teaching and working with the children of the community. We visited there briefly today to look at our working space for the week and meet the people we shall be working with. For some of the group who have been here before, it was good to return and see some familiar faces, For others that have not visited before it was overwhelming to see the living conditions and way of life out here in Uganda.
Hope all is well back in England, please leave some comments that we can share as a group,
Kacy and Gabii.
p.s. Apologies, but there seems to have been a typo in a previous email with regards the flight home. It actually arrives at Heathrow T2 at 15.00 on Sunday 10th
