Leah's mom is one of the pre-school teachers at the school that Adonai Partners has established in their community. I never met her dad. He didn't show his face one time in the five days we were there. Not only did I spend a lot of time with Leah, but I also went and sat with her mom in their little hut. Sometimes we talked. Other times we just sat in the silence. Maybe it sounds weird, but there was a bond that happened with that sweet family. I've even heard from Leah's mom since I left. Email exists even in the African bush!
I took A LOT of photos while I was in Arut. When I started editing this portion of my trip, it had been a few weeks since my return. I didn't even remember the little Leah photo shoot that I found on my computer. It was like opening a gift. By looking at the photos, my guess is that she didn't realize I was shooting her and when she did, she posed, and then got all silly on me. Exactly as a four year old should! Please remember Leah and her family in your prayers. Leah's mom's biggest prayer request was for school fees for her daughter.
I went to Uganda to capture the stories through photography of what God is doing there through Adonai Partners.
