We had the great pleasure of having Willy Ouma back in our town again recently. Willy is a formerly sponsored Compassion child (and Leadership Development student) from Uganda who started Give Hope Ministries — a school and future orphanage in Busia, Uganda. Having been rescued from poverty as an orphan himself, through caring and loving sponsors, he’s always been eager to reach out to help children facing the same trials.
We were blessed to be able to spend a few days with him here. Chris, Jeremy and I took Willy up into the Big Horn Mountains for a hike.
They certainly had me giggling the whole time.
It was truly a pleasure and a riot to hang out with all of them!
We went along Clear Creek and found some fun rocks to explore.
Jeremy was experimenting with various musical and percussive sounds that he could make (and bounce off rocks) in various places.
Willy found out that mountain streams are very cold, even on a warm day.
Thankfully, nobody fell in, although we came close.
We also went to Tie Hack, the dam and reservoir that provide water for our city. There was a mysterious message left there by someone previously. We would loved to have known the real story behind it. Real or fake? Sad or silly?
What a fun day with these guys! They’re all just absolutely wonderful!
