Stephen's Account of the Consecration

Stephen emailed me today with the account of his consecration below. And I had email from Lillian, too, in which she mentioned that she'll be on her way back to Uganda tomorrow to finish her practicum at the ECS office.

 

Warm greetings to you in the name of our Savior Jesus Christ. I hope that you are all fine and doing well.



I am sorry…

Wanted: Carpenter/Woodworker

We're planning to send a very small team to Lui for the month of September if things there stay safe and stable enough after independence. Bishop Stephen has requested that we include someone who can teach young people there (probably people in their 20s) how to make furniture using hand tools. If he or she can also teach roofing, that's a plus. Let me know if you are interested in being this member of the team and we can talk about what a month in Lui would be like. Deadline for making the… Continue

Some Random Bits of Info and Observations

If you've been here in May or June before, you might not believe me when I say Lui this weekend has been the coolest I've ever seen it. Stephen and Bishop Bismark were both wearing sweaters all day yesterday. It has thunderstormed off and on and stayed at least partly cloudy.

 

We are staying at the old hospital guest compound, as the team did last November. They now have a solar array for power most of the time but still turn on the generator at night. They're keeping us in…

Debbie Smith's report of Bullen Dolli's funeral

 

from Debra Morris Smith:

Yesterday, June 10, 2011, was Bishop Bullen's funeral. Bishop Bismark of Mundri, currently also caretaker bishop of Lui, officiated and celebrated the Eucharist. Bishop Eluzai, the retired Bishop of Mundri, preached. Archbishop Daniel was unable to attend because he was in Bor in anticipation of the consecration of the new bishop there tomorrow.

 

So much went into preparing for the funeral all week. Pastor Noel Knight of Lozoh…

Here We Are

Wayne and I have arrived in Lui, and all the gifts for Stephen have arrived with us.Whew! We came in on MAF with the family in charge of the mission at Mundri; it was great to see them all again. And for those of you who know the MAF pilots, Laurie was our pilot today.

 

The weather is June-worthy hot and sticky, but it looks like rain. The rains have arrived, and the crops are looking good. We're staying in the hospital guest compound, which has switched over to solar power --…

Going to Lui

Wayne and I will be leaving to attend Bishop Bullen's funeral in Lui next week. For me this is such an odd trip! More than anything, it's odd not to be thinking about logistics for a whole team; it feels much more like going to General Convention or House of Bishops than going to Lui, and I have to try to remember that I still should pack the first aid kit and my yellow fever certificate. But the trip itself has an odd feel to it because while we are going for the funeral of the previous…
