It's 11:40 here in Durango, which means that it is 7:40 in Kampala. I just talked with Linny and she asked me to do a post ---- what at 11:40. I mean Linny can stay up all night, but me i'll probably go to sleep as I write. :)
I could tell when i called her things were going well. They left the Guest House at 7:00 and went to the slums. She was giggling as she answered. She laughed as she told me the sights of kids everywhere. She thinks about 250 showed up to be dressed in all the wonderful cloths that you all sent.
Some were on top of houses - just so excited.
Everyone was smiling laughing... this is a big deal... they never, and I mean never get to see anything like this. But because Abby and David invest their lives in these kids, they felt what better way to celebrate their marriage than with the kids they love.
I think we tried to plan on 200 outfits.... so we might need a little, multiplication of fish and bread.... this time shirts and ties!
One little boy, I think she said a 2 year old, showed up just in an old t-shirt with no bottoms. That's not that unusual in the slums, but it gives you an idea of what everything looks like.
So - use your imagination. 250 kids - many men and women looking on - watching 19 very white middle class ladies from America - dressing all these kids. Wow, what a sight. Beautiful and very funny at the same time.
Linny's giggles spoke for the entire team. I'm sure the entire team was in disbelief and totally fulfilled at the same time.
Linny, was born for such a time as this.... so was Emma, and so were many of these women.
What a beautiful picture of the bridal feast in heaven someday. Come in your rags and enter dressed as royalty.
Yes, the Royal wedding is about to happen. Thank you for all who helped. Emma is trying very hard to have it broadcast so check our her blog at emonamission.blogspot.com
This is dw - trying to catch a few winks before logging back on to watch a wedding that will truly glorify God! No proof read on this - i'm too tired so forgive all mistakes!!!
(I'm on my blood thinners for the clots - thank you for all your prayers... and this stuff is making me very groggy!)
