Our family friend's daughter is writing about Medical Issues in Africa for her High School Social Justice class. She asked if we would answer some questions for it. Here's the result:
1. What has been your experience with medical assistance in Africa?
First, I have to say "not much." But, some. You can find some great articles on the UN web-site www.un.org/en search, "Africa Medical" ~ Here is another article… Continue

Sarai goes into labor with her first pregnancy. She begins her journey to the clinic. By herself, she walks. For two days. She can't go any further. She's bleeding and in pain. She's half way there. It's almost morning. The baby comes. It's a boy. She continues to bleed. She's so happy to see her boy's face. Sarai falls asleep... passes out. She is found. In this case, the baby survived. Sarah did not. In many cases it's the other way around.
For every 10 babies born in Mozambique, 1… Continue

Life in a Leper Colony. What would it be like? Separated. Left to die, alone. Banished.
Our family recently visited Robben Island. Home for lepers, ‘lunatics’ and ‘lawbreakers.’
Sign in the photo says: Leper Graveyard
The Church of the Good Shepherd was Anglican
and built for lepers.
No pews, lepers would stand or lay on the ground.…

Surreal ~ sipping a home made cappuccino in the place we are renting, back with my family 6AM Sunday Easter morning. Returning home to South Africa from another country.
The average Mozambican lives on about 1 US dollar per day.
You can walk through the 'black' (underground), market with iPhone or camera in hand without concern of it being… Continue

I had no idea what to expect... And I still don't... We only landed in Beira 2 hours ago.
Most people were moving through immigration quickly ~ the person behind the glass took my passport and said, "$25." I happily handed him the $10 and the $20 US Dollars I had in my wallet... He told me, "wait over here." As time passed they gathered a few foreign passports ~ I poked my head in and said, "look, I don't need the $5 change, just keep it, and let me get on my way." Eventually, he said,… Continue

I was warned not to go. Told that South African citizens
could have a problem going, and that as a US citizen,
“I should not go.”
was gracious and agreed to cover my colleague Hannes and my flight, lodging and food. Jennifer would have liked to have gone, but with the various warnings we thought it was best that she didn’t.

Someone mentioned to me that they hadn't seen an update from me recently. A proper extensive update. Not a FaceBook type update.
Let I just say, that if you are not on FaceBook, you will be. : ) I say that with strong confidence that #1 it's not going anywhere, #2 adding over 600,000 new members PER DAY ~ it in many cases is replacing eMail and other forms of communication. If you aren't on, dive in. If you are concerned about fraud or identity theft, just be cautious of what you… Continue

Today is Day 40 in Africa
GREAT developments have JUST occurred regarding our housing!!
We had budgeted $950 per month for rent. As Jennifer & I have been looking lightly for about 4 weeks and picking up the pace last week. We saw 4 houses/apartments on Sat (3 days ago). In our price range we started getting a little down and began to lower our expectations, while trying to keep a good attitude, (the good attitudes came and went, and came back, etc.)

"to every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven" (Eccl.3:1)
Being born & raised in Ventura California I knew (1) One season. 70 degrees & sunny, with occasional showers. When I'd visit other places, with snow or bright colored fall leaves, I'd fly in, see it, and be gone within days.
Until I was in my mid-thirties! Now after living in Franklin, Tennessee for seven years I've come to appreciate and love the changing of the… Continue

Ok, so Jennifer Greenberg has got to be the hardest musician to get ahold of! I've been trying really hard to buy a CD and NOONE knows how to get ahold of one. Is there some updated site that Google doesn't know about? Anyways, I know this site isn't hers but her weird MySpace page sent me here. What's the deal?! I Love her music and gave away her CD to a struggling friend years ago. I've been trying to find another copy for myself since then. Anyone out there with info on this?!

I guess stuff like this happens more often than I realize. Because we would run into stories like this ALL the time in Uganda.
We just came across a huddle of huts and ran into Vincent. We were able to spend about an hour with their family. They wanted to hear about the HIV/AIDS info we had - and payed very close attention - we asked if they wanted to hear another message from another cube (we used a cube for both HIV & Gospel).
As we shared the Gospel using the… Continue

I had no idea about much of Uganda. It seemed like Idaho,"You only go there if you have to" - but when you get there - you discover amazing eye opening revelations!
When people approach my property or even my door in California and now in TN, my first inclination is to grab a sharp object or bee bee gun. And come up with the quickest excuse why I do not want to talk to them so they will just GO AWAY!
Not Ugandans... They respectfully shake hands, and carry from their huts chairs… Continue

Take a look. It's clipped on her pink 'camo' backpack ready to go.
Kids have already asked her, "what is that." Sarah has been able to share the gospel message with about three people so far this year at school, or on the bus.
It may look like a pose. But it's not. Just a dad, seeing how; cute and 'ready' for school, his little 7 year old is.
I'm so proud of her. She had a spelling test today, and is ready for a great… Continue

Ethan, our 11 year old son and I are planning to go to Arua Uganda in about 6 weeks. We are going with the missions organization I work with e3 Partners
- during the trip we will share (with our group, and the national leaders we work with there) HIV/AIDS Education and Awareness, that can lead to prevention.
