WMM Uganda Trip: Sending Out Sound Waves

African rains ushered in day 4 our of trip. I found them to be peaceful and relaxing.




It made for a slower morning, since apparently everything here gets delayed when it rains. It gave me time to enjoy some time alone and a cup of African coffee (coffee with milk and sugar).


A few more of our endearing hotel staff members.

The main ticket on today’s agenda was a press conference to promote the upcoming worship conference. Samson and the EA Gospel team arrived in the early afternoon, dressed to the nines.



 There was a media representative on hand to interview the teams, and we had multiple cameras rolling.

It was neat to watch Kurt and the guys share straight from their hearts on why they’re here. I felt like they all spoke so well and really painted a great picture of what the conference will accomplish. These words will be broadcasted all over the city to draw in even more students.

After the press conference, the leadership team circled up to hash out more details and firm up the vision for the worship conference. I think we’re all getting pumped up!

I had a good chat with him this morning and asked to take his portrait.wmm_uganda_trip_day_4_0026_160919

The academy students were patiently waiting for us to return for another day of teaching and training. We made the short but lively trek back in the late afternoon.

Taxi rides are always a little like playing the lottery here. You never know what you’re going to get. On this occasion, I got a rad shot of this woman riding on the back of a “boda boda,” or motorcycle.

Samson fired up the troops before Anthony and Kurt took turns doing their thing.

Remember Frank from yesterday? Yeah, he’s still just as awesome as I remember. Today he stayed late to re-string the academy’s guitars with the new strings we gave them.


Caleb and Patrick, two more faithful volunteers at EA Gospel Mission.


A couple of the students posed for portraits afterwards.

I’ve seen lots of street vendors making food, but not very many people buying it. It looked tasty to me. I may break down and try some street food before this trip is over.

As we filtered out of the school building, I noticed the sunset light was really nice. I snooped around a bit, and found a few pleasant sights.

Today’s recap video is probably the best one yet. Enjoy!

  1. I’m loving all your shots friend!!! Well done! And totally try some chicken on a stick! Or a veggie samosa if you don’t want to risk it meat wise. But chicken on a stick on those grills? YUM!

    • Thank you THE Sarah Crane! I am tempted to try that chicken on a stick. We’ll see how daring I feel towards the end of the trip.
