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.

Wednesday 23.11.11 17th full day in Uganda

In nursery school I checked on Elijah’s arm. It was a LOT better – the swelling had gone down, and most of the pus had gone, and I was able to wipe away the rest of the pus. I re-sprayed it with Dettol, and applied a clean bandage. I also put a bucket-load of hand sanitizer on his hands in case he picks at it. Hopefully, if I clean it tomorrow and check on it on Friday it will be all better – I don’t want it going back to what it was. If I am still suspicious I’ll get Britt to check on him.

At lunch I at the food prepared for the staff – today it was rice and beans, and it was plain but nice. Afterwards I had some chips as well.

I went up to the primary school, but because they have just finished their exams they were all just playing. I watched until 3, and then went home. There is only so much volleyball I can handle.

Before dinner I did some reading, and then went for a walk, hoping to find an internet café (there are a lot in the city, but not so many around here) as Britt and Andrew need their laptop a lot at the moment. The only one I found was closed, and looked like it had been for a while. But I was able to buy a map of all the districts of Uganda, and for only 5000 shillings.

After dinner, Britt and I watched Honey 2, which was absolutely terrible. It was in the Rise of the Planet of the Apes cover, which is really the only excuse for such lowness.
