Adventures of the Way Family


| June 13, 2009

I wrote this on Saturday, June 13 — our first morning in Uganda. This morning jet lag had me awake at 4:00. When I was still wide awake at 5:00 I decided to get up and face the day. I walked outside and settled myself into a plastic chair on the verandah of the guest […]

In Honor of a Man of God

| October 16, 2006

My friend and brother Godfrey Kayita left this life last wee.  All I’ll say now is it hurts like — I actually almost said it hurts like Hell, but then I realized it doesn’t.  Thank God for that.  It doesn’t because he’s with Jesus, and we’ll see him again.  But it hurts a lot. On […]

Dear friends, A phone call yesterday from Uganda informed me that Godfrey Kayita died that morning. It was followed by this simple e-mail message from another friend: Pr.Kayita is dead. Kayita was one of the best friends I’ve ever had. Some of you who have been to Uganda had the privilege of knowing him. I’m […]

from London

| January 25, 2006

So I’m at Heathrow airport in London, where I intend to spend the night before getting by butt home to my family tomorrow! I’m pretty worked up about that. Uganda… Man, it was good to be there. Dang good. I almost feel like a different person there. I see God in a different way, get […]

Uganda Travel

| January 23, 2006

On a lighter note… a couple (or so) Uganda travel stories.  First, the bus to and from Gulu.  This is a big tin can of a bus, crowded to the hilt, and careening down the road at ridulous speeds.  Every time we swerved to avoid a pot hole, you could feel the bus swaying to the […]

More Gulu

| January 18, 2006

I was on the bus coming back from Gulu (the crowded, uncomfortable, painful, hot, stuffy bus), and I was filled with this profound wonder at the thought of living in God’s dream for me.  I’ve had a feeling for a long time that the Lord was calling me to northern Uganda, among other places.  While I was […]


| January 14, 2006

I’m writing this from Gulu in northern Uganda.  Some quick background:  A rebel group called the Lord’s Resistance Army has been terrorizing this region for nearly 20 years.  The last two evenings I have visited “night commuter centers.”  People come from their homes to sleep in these places.  They come because they are afraid if […]

The Interpreter

| January 5, 2006

The other night we watched this movie, The Interpreter.  The story takes place in New York, but the back-drop is Africa and one of its evil dictators.  It is fiction, but rang too true in many ways…  except in the end, where there seemed to be some justice done to a degree.  That doesn’t seem to […]
