Embagga at Disney – Part 2

As a continuation of part 1, I just want to reiterate how much I love these kids and how incredible they are. I’ve been invited to join the choir on their return trip to Uganda, which would be an incredible opportunity and I know I could provide the documentary film with some amazing photos. However, they can’t afford to bring me along, so I have less than a month to try to get support raised to cover a $1,300 plane ticket (or get skymiles donated) and over $500 in vaccinations and malaria meds. I don’t like asking for money or for help most of the time, but through everything my husband and I went through, I have learned that some people really want to give and asking allows them that opportunity. So here I am. I can cover some of the cost myself, but would appreciate any help you can offer – whether that is donating sky miles, giving me $20 or $200 or sharing this post with someone you know who might want to help too.

 

In a really weird, unexplainable way, I know that I am supposed to go on this trip. I am going to call to set up my vaccinations tomorrow in faith that my trip will be funded in some way so I can join Erin, the video crew, and the rest of the choir in Uganda on November 14th. It is so wonderfully scary and exciting at the same time.

 

Our time together at Disney was so much fun. Even though it was hot and there were long lines, the kids were so patient and wonderful. We took the train to the other side of the park where the kids cooled off in the water fountains. It was pure joy. We flew on Dumbo, which was really cool because two of the boys want to be pilots and the smiles on their faces are priceless. They rode a roller coaster after that and I stayed on the ground to take photos. I was cracking up when I saw them at the top and no heads were sticking out because they were crouching down as if hiding was going to make it less scary. Then, we went on the Winnie the Pooh adventure and cooled off at the ice cream stand where we reunited with the other groups. At this point, I had to leave to be with family, but I know they had a great time the rest of the evening. I am anxious to hear about the rest of their journey across the pond to Northern Ireland and then home to Uganda, where I hope to join them.

 

I hope you enjoy the rest of the photos from our time together at Disney. Thank you for reading and sharing this with others as you feel led.
