prayer request

Hi family,

Just want to let you all know that I am safe & sound here in Kampala. I'm not sure if you saw the news, but there were some bombings here last night.

Please keep me in your prayers.

Love,
Amanda Mary


July 5: My class, with our amazing prof, Francois who works
for World Vision International's Rapid Response Team.

BBC News:"Two bombs in the Ugandan capital, Kampala have killed at least 64 people and injured another 70.
The blasts hit a rugby club and an Ethiopian restaurant where football fans had gathered to watch the World Cup final.
Police suggest that Somali militants could be to blame.
They have previously threatened to target Kampala because of the presence of Ugandan peacekeepers in Mogadishu to protect the fragile government against Islamic insurgents."

Your heart must have been so heavy when you heard this news. I will be praying for her and her team during this troubling unrest.
