Happy New Year's from Nimule!

Hello all! This morning we left wonderful Adjumani and headed to the Sudanese border. This went much more smoothly than getting through the Uganda/Kenya border. Since we have friends who have friends here, we didn't even have to talk to anyone! Just take the passports and stamp!

So, we got here, had some goat and chips and a soda, and now we've headed down to the Cornerstone Children's Home in Nimule (Neh-Moo-Lay), Sudan. This is an orphanage that Jason helped to spear head back in 2004 when the place was decimated by the Sudanese Civil War as well as atrocities committed by the LRA. Jason worked to rescue orphans from the surrounding area and give them a place to stay, classes and food.

I am unable to post any pictures, but can't wait for you all to see these kids. They are absolutely wonderful. We have met some new friends here in Nimule and are going to celebrate the New Year with them tonight and tomorrow.

Tomorrow, we will board a bus for Juba, the capital of South Sudan. I will update you all at that time, but until then we love you very much and thank you again for our prayers. We are having a blast!

Randy (and Jason)
