Andrew Wallace

“I have begun my journey back to the UK. The last week has been an emotional journey of painful, but good goodbyes. Finishing well is hard, yet I believe that God, in his mercy, has made it happen. Goals were achieved, gifts were given, assurances of prayer exchanged. Despite numerous well-ups, I’ve managed to keep my tears from overflowing the eyelids so far this week. The moments that brought me to the brink include:

  • -A beautiful final team day of good food, fun games, words of encouragement and prayer. 
  • -My friend old Lukwa taking the initiative to pray for me the day before I left.
  • -The Laarim children singing for me at the air strip as I prepared to board the plane. 
  • -A lovely letter from one of the missionary children.


The co-existence of the excitement of returning with the grief of leaving is hard to describe… but in a word, I would say I feel thankful. Thankful to God for everything that he has done and everything that he is going to do.”
