Uganda 2013

On Monday, about a week ago, 13 other people and I returned from our missions trip in Jinja, Uganda. We were there for a little over 2 weeks, about 18 days total. including travel. We worked with AOET, the very same organization my parents worked with when we lived there 4 years ago. AOET is an organization that works mainly with children orphaned by HIV/AIDS. They have a health clinic, primary school, and secondary school all in the Jinja district. Our purpose was to conduct interviews of sponsored children in order to provide updated information to both the organization and the child's sponsor. The whole trip was absolutely amazing in every way. It was hilarious, eye-opening, perspective-changing, and just an overall wonderful experience! We all made so many lifelong relationships with the children, the staff, and of course: each other. Here's a little bit of what we did each day:
Friday, June 28th-left Dulles
