Chicago to Atlanta.
Atlanta to Amsterdam.
Amsterdam to Uganda.
The journey begins tomorrow!
Here's the 411 on the trip...
Received an exciting invitation a few months ago from our friends at Compassion International to go to Uganda and experience their work there first hand. Since The Orchard already has a partnership started in Uganda, we felt like this would be a great opportunity to explore how we might be able to expand our global reach.
(Btw - if you're not familiar with Compassion, you need to be. They are making a huge impact in places all over the world. In fact, they're currently helping over a MILLION children in over 25 countries. Amazing, isn't it?)
So....keep your eye out on the blog over the next several days. I'm planning to post photos, maybe a video or two, and of course I'll probably Twitter now and then as well. Also excited to have "the real" Mike Jones accompanying me on this trip!
Uganda is eight hours ahead of Chicago time, so we should be arriving in Kampala (the capital city) sometime around noon (CST) on Friday, May 22.
Over and out.
