Jebale Sseybo

I just had a full on conversation in my head with a fictitious taxi driver outside the Entebbe airport.
My friend April and I had lunch together and a good essay writing session at a cafe downtown and we planned our entire trip to Uganda this Christmas. I can see/hear my mom sighing right now and thinking i'm nuts (in a good way). I get pumped when I talk about Uganda and i LOVE having friends to like to hear about it (or at least pretend to like to hear about it). 
Christmas 09. Uganda. What's better you ask? Nothing in my books. 

Hebrews 6:13-20 "When God made his promise to Abraham, he backed it to the hilt, putting his own reputation on the line. He said "i promise that i'll bless you with everything i have- bless and bless and bless!" Abraham stuck it out and got everything that had been promised to him. When people make promises, they guarantee them by appeal to so some authority above them so that if there is any question that they'll make good on the promise, the authority will back them up. When God wanted to guarantee his promises, he gave his word, a rock solid guarantee- God can't break his word. And because his word cannot change, the promise is likewise unchangeable. We, who have run for our very lives to God, have every reason to grab hold the promised hope with both hands and never let go. It's an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God where Jesus, running on ahead of us, has taken up his permanent post as high priest for us, in the order of Melchizedek."
