Where Will We Be??

So..... where we will be isn't really on this map.  But, if you find the capital, Kampala, and go east, you can find Jinja.  We will be at the Good Shepherd's Fold in Buundo which is about 30 minutes (about 15 miles, I believe) from Jinja.  There is an inset map here, too, that shows where Uganda is in relation to the rest of Africa.

I will also include a link to the history of Uganda.  As a child, I remember hearing about the child soldiers of the Lord's Resistance Army.  Now Uganda is quite stable politically and has seen success in the treatment and reduction of HIV/AIDS due to allowing the Catholic Church to promote safer lifestyle choices (this statement based on conversations I have had with those who work in Africa, not necessarily the Wikipedia link below).  That's pretty cool!
