Mission Statement

In classical sacrifices, the people get the good bits, and the gods get the refuse, the bits that would get thrown out otherwise.

Not our God. Leviticus (particularly Leviticus 3) describes the sacrifices that our LORD demanded from His people of Israel. God gets the kidneys, the tail, and all the fat. He gets the prime steak, He gets the best.

Today we do not literally give sacrifices of animals. For us the ultimate sacrifice has been made through our Lord, Christ Jesus. But should always be our ambition to do the same thing - to offer God the best of what we have, to offer Him the fat, and not the smoke and bones.

5:45AM Ugandan Time. About to Arrive in Doha! (Then on the plane to Entebbe)

I got off the plane and had 15 minutes until boarding time for my next flight started – not much! My ticket didn’t have the gate number printed on it, so I had to ask at information. They ignored me, even serving other (male) people who came after me before me. Another girl was also ignored. She got frustrated and left.

Just like at church, I’m the minority on this plane. What’s unexpected is that Africans are not the majority, Indians are. Most of them forgot to order their vegetarian meals, and complained immensely. My meal managed to be vegetarian, but I could actually eat less of it than on the previous flight, as it was mostly gluten. They didn’t have enough time to get GF/CF food. They gave me some extra fruit. So I guess I’ve started one “African weight loss plan”. As long as I don’t get the usual one (travellers belly).

Something completely unexpected – my ticket was via Doha in the Middle East and not South Africa, which was what I thought. I seriously didn’t realise! But my one plan is to get to Entebbe, Uganda… hopefully with all my luggage.

2:10PM – Touchdown in Entebbe. Overflowing with thankfulness to my God for bringing me here, to the place of my dreams for the past 18 months.
