  • Have you met my friend Judith?

    Today we traversed a crowded dirt street maze. Tuesday morning, September 9 in a suburb of Kampala, Uganda. The local Compassion project coordinator directed us into a dead-end “street” under the eyes of what felt like hundreds of onlookers. I guess they don’t get very many Mzungu (white man) in that area.

  • 26 Hours of Compassion on WJTL (Listen)

    Today, as part of the 26 hours of Compassion on WJTL, I did a call-in. Normally, I don’t like to do these things. As a matter of fact, I just about puked while thinking about it. But it’s for the kids and I love the kids! So, here you can listen to the whole thing:…
