Our New Home Revealed

Posted on September 19, 2010 at 6:30 PM

Okay, after a long wait...here are finally photos of our new home in Kajjansi.  There are still some fine details of decoration to occur over time (like more wall hangings), but it is a home that I love.  I have never had anything created specifically for me before, so this home will always hold more significance to me than any other place I have ever lived.  The Kavulus really did an exceptional job with overseeing the renovations and construction, and I will forever be grateful for their generosity and support during our transition.   

 

For anyone interested in visiting Uganda, you are always most welcome at our home.
