Embracing Local Women at Ggaba Market

What a memorable day exploring Ggaba market close to Munyonyo by Lake Victoria, Uganda! For some reason, I decided to walk to the pier and turn a corner round a huge truck - and that's where I met these beautiful ladies named Halima and Lukia who invited me to sit with them and their babies Shawal and Hanisha. They were from Arua, Northern Uganda. As we chatted, Halima asked me if I was Muslim too, and I said I’m a follower of Isa (Jesus). Before parting ways, I asked if I could pray with them and bless their lovely daughters. They agreed smilingly with open hearts. We sat on those market sacks and did just that, finishing in unison with an "Ameen". It just strikes me that sometimes you walk through places and you never know who Jesus might want you to meet and open your heart to. It’s really a daily adventure of listening and walking by faith, and not limiting your horizons to what you already know!

The Difference

Wayfarers walk by faith and dream with eyes wide open. Living simply, they go places, break barriers, embrace people, and build bridges. They're cool if things go wrong; it's the journey that counts. They like being on their own, but love the company of like-minded people anytime! Wayfarers love to hang with the locals, make music in unusual places, and share stories. They're creative about ways to touch the world both on the home turf and on the road. Wayfarers are on the life-long odyssey of discovery with hearts anchored in Faith, Hope and Love.
