Day 1: We are taking a 7 day journey through life with a family in Uganda. Today we went to the market and based on the jobs we choose "bought" what we could afford for dinner. We also braided some strips of Ugandan cloth into prayer bracelets for the week. Everyone is excited for tomorrow!
|Most of us could afford rice, beans and water for dinner|
|Except for mom...mom could only afford water!|
|our prayer bracelets|
|no water in the house today!|
|this was our water source (it's outside)|
Day 5 in our "Step into My Shoes" journey: Did you know that most families houses in Africa are no bigger than a 10 x 10 area? That is about the size of our bedroom! To experience how others live and sleep we are all sleeping in one room tonight!
Day 7: We finished our "Step into My Shoes" journey tonight! What a great week! I think our family now has a better understanding of what it mean to live with enough. True "enough" in life is found in Jesus! We have so much more than we need, so the last activity was to collect these extra things to give away / sell to help those who don't have enough. The picture is the start to our pile. So proud of my kids!
I encourage you to check out this amazing FREE program. Get into the true holiday spirit, Jesus is enough! http://stepintomyshoes.org/
