What is Faith without Action?

After roughly 24 hours of travel, the team arrived in Entebbe to the warm welcome of old friends and new faces. Just to seeing the country at night does not do it justice, there are so many sights, sounds, even smells to take in that it is almost too much even for those of us […]
