I believe that the older people in the village must be full of wisdom and knowledge. I wish I was beside them during the times they shared about their life stories. They must have had some very entertaining and life changing stories. I am a fan of listening to stories told by those who has lived far longer in the world. I wish that you could also post their stay on this site as well.
I enjoy reading this kind of blog. I feel inspired to continue my day and there is just so much warmth. I believe the testimony of Caleb gives hope about the Pilgrimage. Life stories of people like this are truly inspiring because of its purity. I like your idea of posting the recording here and not just narrating it. But I think it would be better if you also shared your personal thoughts or findings on the matter at hand.
I attended the Africa Pilgrammage in August 2016 with Terry, Caleb and my good friend Rich. I learned that travel to Uganda will reach into your heart. I found some of these experiences to be heart wrenching, especially with the children we met. However I also found these experiences to be heart lifting due to the spirit and optimism of the Ugandan people, especially the children.
I could probably have gained experiences similar to those above on other trips to Uganda. However, the Allies on the Journey pilgrammage with Terry and Caleb reached deep into my soul and started me on a journey to be a better husband, father and person. This journey doesn't just expose you to conditions that will disrupt your view of the world. It gives you a safe place to closely examine how these disruptions impact your life experiences and views, and more importantly how these disruptions can impact your relationships and experiences with all others in your life.
This trip by itself will not transform your life in one week and that is not the intent. However the Allies on the Journey pilgrammage will start you on a path and give you the tools to make a better life for yourself and to look beyond yourself to help others have a better life. I'm looking forward to continuing the journey.
This is a space for Journey Guides to post "field notes" and observations along the path.
