Celebrating One Year!

Today, Jan. 10, marks one year that I have been in Uganda. These 12 months seem on one hand to have really been that long, but then, on other hand, the year has seemed to fly. I am so, so grateful for God's goodness, faithfulness, protection, provision and the many, many blessings He has bestowed on me during my time here. I am not sure I could sum up what all has taken place in the past year. Perhaps, I will try in a future post. : )

But, for now, I am thanking God for this privilege and honor to be a part of His work here. : ) And, I am excited and anxious for all He has in store for 2011! : )

I was honored to recently be interviewed by a young woman from my home area in Oregon. Lucia shares the interview on her blog, which can be found at:

Have a blessed day!


  1. Great interview, Ruthie! And congratulations on a year in Uganda! I can hardly believe it!

  2. Wow, Ruthie. A year? Amazing! Are you planning on coming back for a visit anytime soon?

    And I concur with Lauren--a wonderful interview. ;-) Keep brightening your corner of Africa!

  3. Mikaela, the plans are to come home, mid to late May and stay until early August. Then, return to Uganda! :)
    Thank you for your encouraging comment! You are a blessing. :)

  4. Congrats on the anniversary! :) Isn't it amazing what different ways our paths wind - and how far they are from what we would have forecasted? :)
    I will have to check out that interview - fun stuff!
    And cool new layout! It took me a minute to realize I'd clicked the right link for your blog! ;)

  5. Thank you, Sarah, for the nice comment. Yes, it is amazing how and where God leads - far beyond imagination. I am so grateful His ways are far above mine. :)
    I'm glad you like the new layout - I thought I needed a change. :)
