July 3rd came and 5 of us (Sue and Hannah are staying 2 more weeks) prepared for the journey home. We did all we could to prepare our hearts to leave beautiful Uganda. The team went on a morning hike to watch the sunrise at pride rock. After that we had breakfast, took our feet in red dirt picture and said our goodbyes. At 11am (one hour late otherwise known as On time in Uganda), we left for our 5 hours drive to the Entebbe. Kymba did his usual out of this world driving and made it in 4 1/2 hours. So we arrived at the airport 3 hours prior to departure or so we thought. When we arrived we learned that they had rescheduled the flight to leave 2 hours early but did not notify us. So our fearless leader Julie was the first of many to hit the Qatar Airlines help desk. She worked her magic and got us an even better flight for tomorrow. We then booked a beautiful hotel for the night. The best part is they have wonderful showers! Due to the water being shut off in Iganga we are pretty stinky.
All that to say that sometimes God takes us on sweet detours so we are soaking it up as a blessing.
****Side note if we had followed Sue's fathers travel rule and arrived 4 hours early we would have made our flight.
See you on the 5th!
For the fantastic five.
