Adrian and Andrew arrived safely in Uganda flying via Amsterdam and Rwanda before touching down in Entebbe. A straightforward journey except for a bumpy landing which the pilot apologised for saying it had bruised his ego but not the plane.
They stayed at the Airport Guest House waking to a beautiful morning and apart from some planning needed it was to be a rest day after their 16-hour journey yesterday.
After they enjoyed breakfast at the Guest House, they walked to the local shops in bright sunshine and sorted out Ugandan SIM cards for their phones and exchanged some money for local currency. Then a quick Bada Bada (motorbike taxi) ride to the Lake Victoria Hotel where they spent the afternoon planning the next few days, checking MAF flights and ensuring that Patrick (the local friendly taxi driver) was available to take them to the airstrip tomorrow.
It will be another early start for the ‘duo’ as Patrick is collecting them and the supplies they have carried over for the CRESS team in Uganda. They will then visit a refugee camp in the north of the country.950.000 South Sudanese have now moved to camps in Uganda with 1000 new arrivals very day. The South Sudanese government is being urged by the UN to bring an end to the crisis and terrible suffering.

Our prayer are with Adrian and Andrew for safe passage.
