Quills from a Three Legged Porcupine We Ate

porcupinequillsThese are quills from a three legged porcupine we ate this week. The RG security guards had been trying to catch this porcupine for a while that had been roaming through the cassava gardens.The porcupine lost one of his legs after escaping a trap the first time, but they finally caught him. They gave some meat to Tim and Janice McCall and they unveiled the “mystery meat” at a dinner gathering. They served it in porcupine stew.

Kony 2012

We wanted to share a video with you that Invisible Children has just put together that is making its way around the world (currently at 56,647,137 views on YouTube) KONY 2012 is a film and campaign by Invisible Children that aims to make Joseph Kony famous, not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice.

Our family has committed to moving to Uganda to help bring healing and restoration to Northern Uganda, in the wake of these tragedies. Please share the link with those you know and help create awareness of these events that have happened in this area of the world. Thanks!

Hurrys to Move to Uganda in 2012

We have some exciting news of an international nature. As we prayerfully prepared for our marriage covenant over 4 years ago, one theme we confidently embraced and appreciated from the Lord was His calling to one day serve internationally together. This year, we have begun taking steps to embrace this calling and are planning to move to Uganda in 2012.

It’s still early in the process, but we are desiring to go as part of a multi-gifted team and our next steps are to go on a scouting trip to Uganda this summer. We will be going with a team of 7 people through our church, Common Ground, and the team will be meeting with various ministries in Kampala and northern Uganda. During this 2 week trip the team will be gathering data, praying, discerning and being the eyes and ears on the ground as we seek God’s vision for this venture.

If you are interested in more information or are interested in exploring the option of joining Common Ground and the Hurrys in 2012, you can email: uganda@cground.org.
