See you later, Uganda

S

In a few hours, Wai Jia and I will be hopping on a plane leaving Uganda. I haven’t blog much about our experience in Africa. The past year was a year of laboring for the Lord and experiencing the faithfulness of His goodness. I am leaving with ever more desire to serve Him and seek His Kingdom and His righteousness. I am leaving realizing that the Word of God is a two edged sword and I...

When Empathy is not enough (a missionary musing)

W

Before coming to Uganda with my wife as missionaries, I served in Singapore for 2 ½ years.   Singapore was the first place where I served as a long term missionary.   Given that Singapore is well developed, you would think it was easy for me to transit, right?   Unfortunately, my experience was far from smooth.   My wife had to spend many nights listening...

Baby Vervet Monkey (rare video)

B

In front of our house, we have a mango tree.  It is not uncommon to see a group of Vervet monkeys crossing over the fence and going to the tree to forage for food. A few weeks ago, I captured this rare footage of a baby Vervet monkey.  The baby tends to cling on to its mother.  To see one on its own is extremely rare.  The mother is very protective about her young and any signs of danger, she...

Merry Christmas from Team Tam

M

We wish everyone a Merry Christmas from Uganda.  🙂 As for Wai Jia and I, we are getting good and soundful rest at home. Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be...

Soda Money

S

Since we are serving in Uganda for one year, we decided not to hop in and out of the country just to extend our visas.  Instead, we decided to go with an agency to help obtain a work visa for Wai Jia and a dependent pass for me.  Doing things the right way is sometimes long and expensive.  It took five months here and nine months in Singapore beforehand to compile all the necessary documents.  I...

Every Wednesday…

E

Every Wednesday, the church has a sewing and beading class to help the ladies to strengthen their social-econoimcal situation. Since I am not a big fan of sewing (or beading), I usually read while my wife, Tam Wai Jia, mingle with the ladies. Sometimes we do wonder if this will really make an impact to their lives. Is this what it means to alleviate poverty? Somtimes we do get discouraged and...

Everyday is an adventure

E

We’ve been in Uganda a little more than two months now.   We had our fair share of stressful and unique experiences.  We are adjusting, adapting and at times enjoying the way life is like in Africa.  Some of our worst moments is the car broke down next to the street market and we don’t know what to do.  Or the many turns that we needed to take in order to obtain a work visa.  The process which...

Worship in Spirit and truth

W

A few people asked us why Uganda given that Uganda is Christianized. Since the 1800s, Christian missionaries have been to Uganda to share the gospel. If you asked most of the locals their religion, they will call themselves Christians. So why we are here if most of Uganda is already reached? On our recce trip to Uganda back in February, I stumbled upon the local news that in Northern Uganda there...
