From our CMS Mission Partners on their return to England
Thank you for your prayers for our return from Uganda. We had a really good last few weeks there, with various farewell events that made us feel very affirmed and loved. We managed to pack up our house without too much difficulty, selling or giving away all our furniture – quite a liberating experience!
We left Arua with mixed emotions, as you will understand, but had a smooth journey southwards and a pleasant few days in Kampala and Entebbe. The flight home was uneventful and we arrived at Heathrow to be met by Jo and John, bearing a welcome home banner (see photo).
We have now been home a week and are getting used again to UK life. Our house in Leicester is in good condition, and we were able to buy a car remotely from Uganda (isn’t the internet wonderful?), so we are reasonably set up, but it’s amazing how long it takes to kit yourself up again with everything you need for western life, not to speak of the warm clothes you need to buy!
We look forward to seeing you all soon, as we embark on our tour of link churches in the next few months.
Allan and Anne Lacey.
