New Teammates

We have been saying good-bye to dear friends now for a year. We are now excited to say hello!!!

This past month we have celebrated two wonderful events...

On April 15th Jessica Ankney arrived in Kampala- almost exactly a year after visiting Bundibugyo to see if it was a place she would want to work. We are so glad she decided that she did and are now so grateful to have our long-time friend with us on the field! Pray for her as she begins to learn the language and the medicine. She is a welcome addition to our Bundi family and will give much needed love and care to the children here!

Secondly, Robb, Sheila, Avery, Avelyn and Hayden Warfield have been approved as missionaries by WHM and have decided to join us here in Bundibugyo. They served previously in west Africa and through God’s shepherding they have become the personification of many answered prayers for us. Sheila is a mom who can love her children and the community along side Amy. Their children are similar in ages to ours and will be great friends- loads of adventure, fun and laughter- with ours. Robb brings with him the expertise in teacher development and administration skills that will help support and develop Christ School. I also look forward to swinging on more vines with him! Pray for them as they begin the journey of support raising and getting physically, emotionally and spiritually ready for the long adventure waiting them here in Bundi!


  1. That is so great! I've wondered how Sheila and Rob were doing. We think of you all often and love hearing of your journeys.

  2. I am very thankful for the new hellos as people join the team. Our prayers are with you.
