“For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Eyeing Africa will now be figuratively eyeing Haiti...
Homeless and hungry many Haitians face their futures. We are doing our best to change that.

The shift in programming is two fold:
1. To build productive community assets through food for work programming which in turn will render communities more resilient to natural shocks.
2. Decrease dependency of food aid.
Samaritan's Purse will be implementing the actual distribution of food commodities throughout Southern Karamoja (Nakapiripirit and Moroto Districts) as well as implementing Food For Work activities in 4 sub counties. The new programming will be significantly more complicated but also significantly more beneficial to the long term development of Karamoja and its people.

Here are some things I learned:
- 1. Congo is gold plated.
- 2. Taxing is a national sport –I was taxed for One Pass (a tax to improve the airport), Health ( a tax on your health ?!?) and road tax (enforced by local guys who take their own initiative to improve the roads)
- 3. The roads in Karamoja are good - After one week on Congolese roads, I will never again complain about the roads in Karamoja. The roads were terrible and I cannot imagine how it would be during the rainy season.
Below are some pictures from the trip. Most were taken at small river where men were panning for gold.
