Peoples of the Islands of Lake Victoria, East Africa

An Islands Team member writes: “I dusted off my 20-year-old juicer to make juice. It had been on the shelf unused and untouched for at least a year. Despite the lack of use, it was still a juicer, so when I wanted juice, it was available. The old juicer strained and hesitated every time I loaded fruit, and a few times, I had to turn it off and then back on to create the process. In the end, I had beautiful juice, and for some reason, I began to identify with the juicer . . . old, slow, and struggling at times, but still useful to the Father. Join me in giving thanks to my loving God who still sees that I am who He created me to be and useful for His service–not too old, too tired, or too broken to teach, train, and tell lost Ugandans about Him. What about you?”
