Video Recap

For The Hub this past Sunday I threw together some photos with some music to give everyone a glimpse of the week as we started our gathering. Being that we got into town early that morning, I had to throw it together pretty quick. Since then I went back and fixed the focus on a […]

Uganda Church

After lots of flying the team finally arrived in Entebbe yesterday, a bit tired but ready to roll. As soon as we walked out the airport it started raining. And then pouring as a couple of us strapped the luggage to the roof. This is the dry season and Brent from Cherish said in 4 […]
