|Just another bike load. This man is delivering milk! He fills the|
white plastic with however much you want of raw milk. We see
many of these in the morning. The milkman!
|This is Musa at our first handover in Soroti area. We always|
hand out mosquito nets to mothers with babies first. Then older
women and last the single men who don't have a wife with a net.

|We try to find the very oldest for Sis Howard to personally hand|
her a net. Everyone is very thankful. Malaria is a huge problem
in this area because of so much water.
|Another grateful mother. We are at Ajota school, where we|
gave out about 500 nets.
|Elder Howard trying to find a way to be useful.|
|He finds a diversion! A bike that is very useful.|
|The bike owner has made a portable grinder. He will come and|
sharpen your knives, no matter how far away.
|E Howard was very impressed with this whole set up! He even|
has a movie of all the workings.
|An assistant giving E Howard a demonstration!|
|He seems proud to show a Muzungu the set up.|
|The bike owner, knife sharpening businessman!|
|He sharpened several knives during the handover.|
Imagine how happy the mothers are to go home
with a net and sharp knives!
|Another handover in Opiriai and Amoru villages, Sis Howard|
and Musa have gathered the older woman.
|All are thankful and appreciative!|
|The kids have gathered to check out the Muzungus. The truck with|
nets in the background.
|This is Musa's personal bodyguard. He was with us as|
we did the hoes our first month in Uganda.
|Just a small handover near Musa's compound in Amuria county...|
|where we picked up more nets that had been stored.|

Aten, Olagai, and Aciloa villages. During the handover a woman
in the crowd had an epileptic seizure.
|Another 500 nets handed out here!|
|A cute little family waiting for a mosquito net. Hopefully 2!|
|We saw this young woman coming from quite a distance. She is|
handicapped and gets around by dragging her useless legs behind .
|We talked with her and her brother. Her mother has died and she lives|
with her brother. She is 17 years old. We have contacted Pres Owidi
in Mbale who is helping us with this. This young sister could
benefit from a wheelchair!
|2 small villages, Olianai and Alakaituk and 400 nets given.|
|Anzaro and Osekai villages, about 500 nets given here.|
|I am reaching out to a mother whose name is Magdalenia. Pretty|
close to Madilyn. She was thrilled to have the same name.
|Handing my namesake a net,|
|It has been a long day and we have given many nets.|
|Never too tired to take another pic of a bike load. I think this|
is the local tupperware dealer!
|When we got home I decorated a small tree and got ready for the|
Christmas season! Then we took off the next day for Safari!
