And Somehow the Same…

While there are several differences between our old lifestyle in the U.S. and our new home in Uganda, there are also so many things that are similar and we are very blessed to be able to embrace both the differences and similarities.

Our washer & dryer makes it easy to do laundry (and our deep freeze for extra food storage):


Our fridge, microwave & oven are on our back-up battery system or uses a gas tank so they are always working, even when electricity is off:
