Testimonials from previous outreach trips

Catherine Spence-GodinCan’t believe it’s already time to go home! The best moments never really settle in but rather feel like a good dream. I know when I go back it will be hard to believe I was ever here (in Uganda). Luckily, I have new friendships, plenty of souvenirs and a fuller heart to prove that I was. Thank you for an experience I will never forget. Thank you for taking such good care of us. I continue on with plenty of new stories to tell.

Molly SamsonI am so grateful for this adventure and for everyone who I have met along the way. Joanne has inspired me… to go out of my comfort zone and ultimately change my life for the better. All of the talented and smart people of Buppala have taught me to cherish learning and the opportunities I have. The people of Buppala have reminded me that kindness and hope go a very long way … this adventure has been life-­changing and inspiring and I know I’ll be back!

Hannah Clay WorrellI have fallen so in love with this country and all the people we’ve encountered. I am so grateful to you for showing this amazing place to us and organizing everything so well. My favorite part of the trip was developing a close relationship with the village kids. Their love and hope is so inspiring.
