the BIG move

July 28th
Written by Lori Acton, Fount of Mercy's International Development Director

It’s about a week into the big move to Uganda (I moved to Uganda to work for Fount of Mercy full time in country) and so far it still feels like a short visit. This is mostly because my time is spent with short-term volunteers. The transition is beginning to happen though – I saw my new apartment, started shopping for a refrigerator and checked out my internet options. The best part – reconnecting with people I’ve met from years past and meeting even more people that live in Uganda. I am really looking forward to developing friendships and getting involved with the community here. I am so grateful to be here, and I am looking forward to the adventure in store for me!
