Trip 17, Update 2 Uganda

It has been an emotional week at Stream of Hope Home.  Diana leaving us has been the hardest.  She was just 15 and a sister to these kids.  We had a beautiful celebration for her with the community and God was praised.  She was buried at her Grandfathers home about 1/2 km from the orphanage.  The celebration involved about 400 people, guest speakers, butchered cow and tons of food.  Interesting is that the custom is for people to stay with the family so the night before and after saw over 100 people sleeping all over the grounds with a big bonfire.  We will miss her but the kids and I look forward to seeing Diana again.
