The Time Has Come
Goodbye Uganda. Thank you for all that you have taught me. I have never had an experience like this. Visiting you was life changing, eye opening, and awe-inspiring. I have had a wonderful time meeting your people and seeing the beauty of your land. It has been great having Susie, John, Justin, and Amanda as my companions on this journey, and I hope that I have the opportunity to join them again to visit you. My departure has been bittersweet, but I will always keep the lessons that I have learned from you with me throughout my life. Thank you for the adventure, but it has come to the point of saying farewell. Thus, farewell Uganda and all that you encompass. I may not be with you physically, but hopefully we will still have a connection spiritually and mentally. You will be missed.

Farewell my friends.
This journey has been everything that I imagined it was going to be and more. I can only thank God, MHIRT, and my friends for giving me the opportunity for going to this beautiful country and allowing me to broaden my knowledge of the world and who I am as an individual.
Goodbye Uganda. Until we meet again.
