Written Monday June 9th By Miki and Kristen.
Hello family and friends,
We have been at Child Voice International in the village of Lukodi for about 5 days.  It took us nine hours to travel by bus from Entebbe and along the way we saw spider monkeys, baboons, and the beautiful River Nile.  We have spent the past few days getting settled into our huts, spending time with the 19 girls and their children currently at CVI, and discovering everything that God is doing here.  Not long ago, this land was dominated by an atrocious war – yet God has brought restoration not only to the very land where we are staying, but also to the people who were deeply affected.  The Lord continues to bless CVI and provide many girls with peace, healing, and individual restoration.
Sunday was our first day at Lukodi Community Church where our team led the church service and worshipped our Lord in various languages.  One of our Acholi sisters currently in the CVI program gave her life to the Lord and we also had the privilege of meeting a former CVI student and hearing her testimony of God’s work in her life since graduating.  It’s a blessing to experience God’s love, grace, healing, and mercy in this place as He transcends countless cultural barriers.
Due to lack of electricity and internet access in the village, we apologize for the delay in updating the blog!  We are all safe and sound, keeping busy with many tasks throughout the day.  Our free time is often spent learning the local tribal language of Acholi, hand washing our laundry, playing with children, and sharing life with one another on the team and at CVI.  Please pray for our team, that God would continue to provide us strength, that we would be a united body in Christ, and that we would humbly bring glory and honor to His Kingdom.
God is good.  Lubanga ber (Acholi)
