The following story is from the Jore Family Blog called: “Under the Mango Tree”. Click here to view other posts.
Hans Tanner and Micah Berger, recent AFLBS graduates, have been with us since June 22nd. They are here as short-term assistants for a year to help out with the work and gain practical experience in missions. Their partnership in the work has been a great encouragement and I have really been refreshed by their fellowship.
They have been dividing their time between Jinja and the village. While in the village, they are immersed in village life as they live alongside the locals. They have been learning the local language, agriculture, and culture while building relationships. They also are involved in the Butagaya class and have been mentoring the Ugandan teacher of the class. While in town, they have been assisting me with teaching the Jinja class and building relationships with the students, as well as getting caught up on personal correspondence, and giving Rhoda and I the chance to go out on dates by baby sitting the kids.
They've even found the time to make our family a few delicious meals, build the kids a tree fort and step in as the boys' science teacher (thanks, Micah!). The kids have really loved having two "uncles" around. Hannah tells each of them at least 10 times a day, "I love you SO much!" We're blessed to have them around!
