A Glimpse of Life in Mbale, Uganda

We drove through town and realized several people would probably like to see what we see every day. So here is a small glimpse of our life…

The view from the street into our compound and then looking one direction at the end of our street.

Driving toward town from our house:

Entering one of the main streets from our neighborhood and driving towards town.

A busy road, filled with bodas (motorcycles) and pedestrians and a roundabout in the heart of town.

Our grocery store, which is actually not very crowded (not normal) and the local market.

The row of banks and the line of people going to the ATM at the beginning of the month. Everything is cash-based here.

Here’s our church, Mbale Church of Christ, which is Ugandan-led.


We appreciate you being part of our journey and we want you to feel connected to us and the ministry here in Uganda. We know that photos can’t fully capture how things are so different, but we hope to try to share a small part of our everyday life.

  1. I know yall are blessing those around you, adjusting to a new environment and culture im sure is a shock… but yall are doing great! Love seeing all the pictures!


  2. We loved this glimpse into your daily sights! It helps keep people connected with you. Please let us know, also, prayer requests. Reading in Numbers this week, I was reminded what a young group of people crossed into the Promised land. It reminded me of those you are working with. We continue to pray for your family and this wonderful mission. Please change my email address to tumlinsonb53@gmail.com… Thanks, Bonnie

  3. I loved the pictures! They make the world seem a bit smaller and really bring things into perspective. Thank you so much for taking the time to share them.
