Quick Update + More Photos

First of all, thank you all so much for your comments. We cannot express how much we value the love and support we have received throughout this journey.

I spoke with Amy this morning and here is what I learned:

Amy, Tommy, and Mary went to Jinja today so that Grandma could see the source of the Nile and Bujagali Falls, and enjoy deep fried bananas at Gately. Mmmmm, deep fried bananas... They will be going on a two day safari this weekend and should be back in Ggaba by Monday night.

They met with the officials at the Ministry of Gender and received approval to proceed to process Tommy's passport. We should find out soon when that is expected to be ready. Once we have the passport we can finalize the Visa through the US embassy. Then, everyone comes home.

Please pray that Tommy's passport will be ready as soon as possible. The passport process doesn't have to take very long, but it often does. While Amy loves Uganda, we are all eager for our family to be together.

Now, here are some pictures from our trip to Jinja:
