We FINALLY moved to Gulu!
On November 17th, we drove a HUGE van with all of our stuff and recently purchased appliances from Kampala to Gulu and unloaded it all in our newly leased house.
The house needs a lot of work. We’ve already had plumbers, electricians, carpenters, and a wall-building team at the house. Looks like we will have crews on site for the next week or two. In Uganda, when looking for furniture, having it made is usually the cheapest option. So, we still don’t have furniture. All this means that although we started our lease about 10 days ago, we still aren’t living there. We definitely plan on moving in before Thanksgiving, though.
During our previous drives to and from Gulu, I kept wishing that there was some way to share the drive with you all. So, this time, I took a photo every 15 minutes (starting from outside Kampala, or about 30 minutes into the drive). I hope you enjoy!
Then we cross the Nile River at Karuma Falls, where we see the baboons!
Then we reach Gulu town!
As you can see, our drive has gotten REALLY smooth. The roughest driving we have is dodging potholes in Kampala, and then the roads within Gulu town…which are now being worked on as well.
Sorry for the delay in posts. We have been swamped with this housing/moving stuff. I hope to catch up soon, as we have lots of cool stories to share.
Thanks for following along!
- For smooth transition into this new house (for quick work/repairs, safety, etc)
- Wisdom, clarity with new routines at Lumi.
- Praise for finding a home!
Let us know how we can be praying for you!
