Storms in Uganda hold a candle to no other.  

These storms have ministered to my soul more than anything else here.

God created these storms.

They are good.

They are needed.

Storms keep all of creation in complete submission to His power. 

We knowingly stepped into the storm of this ministry we are part of here, a world away from home.

We also knew God asked us to and was making a way.  Now, at this exact time.

It has been nothing less than a time of bracing up under His Wing.  

At times there has been deep confusion.  Fear.  Frustration.  Loss.

We hear it, we see it, we feel the energy in the air.  The window slams against the frame, a metal door comes unlatched.

There is both running to latch things secure and then there is the waiting, watching, listening.  Standing in awe.

In the midst of storms it's hard to see beauty.  Only destruction is felt and seen on every side.   

"How can this possibly be part of Your plan?"

Storms strip down, stir up, remove and expose foundations.

Only foundations built on The Solid Rock will stand.

After He stills, light breaks forth…..

the still is coming….

Romans 8:28
"And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose."
