A Book, A Park, and A Hotel

I started reading a new book today, The Blue Sweater by Jacqueline Novogratz.  It is the story of a woman who was working in Africa when she sees a child wearing a sweater that she donated to GoodWill years before, confirmed by her name still printed on the neck label.   I haven’t gotten very far in the book yet, but I believe it is going to talk about her experience of helping and learning from the people of Rwanda.  She mentions that as a child she always wanted to “make a difference” in this world and I’m eager to follow her story.  I’ll let you know what I learn.

Attached are some pictures of the wildlife and scenery that is part of the Muchison Falls National Park area in NW Uganda.  I plan to visit this park on our trip. The photos are from a colleague who traveled there last summer.

Also, I was able to make reservations at a guesthouse in Uganda called Namirembe Guest House. It looks nice and was recommended by a friend who used to live in Kampala and who goes there for mission trips.
