All Five Senses

Before my first trip to Uganda in 2008, Lori (FOM's International Development Director) told me that in Uganda she noticed how intensely she used all five senses. It wasn't until landing in Entebbe that I understood what she meant. And... I agreed. In Uganda, I felt deeply, and smelled richly... I saw flashes of color and noticed every new sight. I held orphans and danced with widows. I heard stories. And by using my five senses in such a tremendous way, I grew. Reflecting back on that first trip, I can only be thankful for Lori's words to me before I traveled. I would have missed out had I not been ready to see, hear, touch, smell, and feel.
