All of my American friends will soon be waking from their Thanksgiving food coma and I wanted to give you all one more gift from my Thanksgiving in Uganda. I was so thankful to be invited to a missionary gathering for Thanksgiving dinner, but then was invited to a meeting out at Cornerstone Leadership Academy’s girls’ school. My time in Uganda is short is and I felt like I wanted more time with students, so I forewent the turkey and gravy for a plate of potatoes and meat cooked by the young ladies at CLA. What a smart decision!
The meeting was an introduction to Cornerstone’s program for graduated students, Cornerstone Old student’s Club or COSA. Mary, from the COSA office began with a prayer and asked the girls to lead a song. This CLA class is called “Echoes of Grace” and I learned why as they burst into song! Wow. Twenty minutes later we were going strong and my heart overflowed with even more thanksgiving. Here is a little glimpse of the spontaneous worship session to start your “Black Friday” in the US.
You are all very welcome.
