I've been sick all week with really bad stomach pains. It's finally going down, and I started drinking gatorade which is really helping. I also started a spanish class last thursday, and love it! Wasn't able to make it yesterday though.
Two more months and i'll be in Uganda! I found amazing priced tickets today so i'm feeling good. Once we have our group meeting, we're going to book. Hopefully next week. We'll be there for 18 days, and 17 nights-not including travel time which is estimated to take 2 days! I've never been on a flight this long, my flights have always been between 3.5-6 hours. Any tips from travellers?!
The only luggage I will have with me is my carry on and purse. My carry on will be all my clothing and personal needs as we're all using our main luggage for donations. I plan on bringing each of my sponsor kids a filled backpack, with school supplies, a church outfit, books, etc. I really want to spend a few hours with them doing an activity but i'm not sure what?! All the kids will take part in the amusement park and swimming, but i'm sure i'll be busy watching over everyone(after all, the majority of the kids have never left their 'compound', or have been in a car!)
Donations are still very much needed, and appreciated, for the volunteer fund. http://www.christianupliftmentschool.com/volunteer_fund
It costs $9 to pay for a child's activity day at Didi's World, and $7.50 for swimming. We still have many children who are not covered and I really want them all to be able to participate. You can donate on behalf of an unsponsored child, and you will receive their pictures from their activity day. They will be so greatful to you!!
