Jim Ransom is the Pastor at Bridget and Steve’s home church – Faversham Gospel Mission in Kent – and this was his first visit to Uganda. Jim has expressed so eloquently the impact that this trip has had on his life:
Waking up to the sound of Black Ibis laughing at the Sun, while guard dogs howl at their flight above, its 6.30 am in Mbale and all around me I sense the town waking up. It’s like a shout that is gathering in intensity, volume and brightness. I wish I could bottle this. But then I will meet someone and hear their story, and the victory cry of morning turns oh so swiftly into a lament of mourning and sadness. Life goes on, I have never met a people who having so little but wish to share so much. Truly humbling experience, a place of breathless beauty and grace!
