We’re back home..

Traveling half-way around the world is not to be viewed lightly. It takes time, effort and energy. The rewards from traveling half-way around the world, however, make the time, effort and energy well worthwhile. I was privileged to visit the Wambabya coffee farm and be part of Jessca’s celebration. I know that the workers on the coffee farm are hard-working and dedicated to growing great coffee. I learned that our coffee workers are also caring, energetic and lots of fun.

The CEED business manager, Herbert Asiimwe, planned a terrific party to celebrate Jessca’s 17 years of work with the Ugandan Gold Coffee farm as the farm manager. There was music (with a DJ!), a fantastic lunch, singing and dancing and a few speeches that were testimony to Jessca’s hard work and devotion.

I also got my first taste of obushera–a local drink made with millet and many other ingredients. Jessca’s obushera is famous.

Traveling half-way around the world is arduous and time-consuming, yet the people we meet and the time we spend with them will be remembered for a lifetime.
