This week I was able to devote a lot of time to editing photos from my Uganda trip. I can’t believe it’s been over 3 weeks since I returned from there. It feels like so much has happened since then (which is a blog post for another time).
I think I’ve eluded to how surreal my time in Northern Uganda was. Although I’ve lived in Africa and traveled some within the continent, I had never experienced anything quite like my time in the Gulu district in the North. We spent the first two days in Dino, about a 2 1/2 hour drive down a dirt road from Gulu town. It was amazingly green and beautiful there.
There were medical and dental clinics and ministry to the children all going on at the same time. Sometimes it felt like mad chaos but I know lives were touched. I wandered around during all of it taking photos and talking to people, finding out their story.
I’m usually drawn to the children because they tend to be so natural in front of the camera, so it’s no surprise that most of my favorite photos from Dino are of the kids. I loved that, after spending all day loving on the kids, the children’s team served them a hearty meal, thanks to the ladies who worked all day preparing it.
It looks like I’ll be spending at least the next week posting more photos from Dino. There’s just so many that tell the story of what we did there. I hope you’ll follow along!
Linking up with Jennifer @ Studio JRU for Sneak Peak Friday.
I went to Uganda to capture the stories through photography of what God is doing there through Adonai Partners.
