I'm just a plain 'ole regular mom going through life doing the "family thing" - that is until I was recently asked to go to Uganda. This is my story of stepping out of my box and beyond my comfort zone. I am reminded that God equips those He calls and nothing happens without passing through His hands first.

Uganda - "The Pearl of Africa"
Since I'll be going to Uganda soon, I thought I better read up some about the country and it's customs so I'll know a little of what to expect. Here's a few interesting facts I learned...
Uganda has tropical weather conditions which are moderated by the high altitudes. The hottest months are from December to February but it is still cooler at night. The wet seasons in the south of Uganda are from March till May and in northern Uganda from April to October. You can find current weather conditions in Lira, Uganda here.
Seasons in Uganda:
Spring: November - December
Summer: December - February
Autumn: March - April
Winter: May - October
Uganda is a little smaller than the state of Oregon.
The average flight from Oklahoma to Uganda is about 32 hours long.
50% of the population of Uganda is 15 years of age or younger.
