In March of 2009, I journeyed with six of
my fellow high school students to the East
African nation of Uganda for a two-week
service experience. Two teachers from our
high school, Eastern Christian, accompanied us, as well as three representatives from Touch the World Ministries, a short-term missions organization. In Uganda, we worked under the mentorship of Jesse and Andrea Cruz, two TTW missionaries.

While in Uganda, I felt, saw, heard and
smelled a culture and lifestyle I had never
known existed. The things I experienced
in Africa radically changed my worldview,
forcing me to face new questions and
challenging realities. On this site, I will
attempt to show you a little bit of this
enchanting, hurting land, and what is being
done to help the people.
