Bombings in Kampala

By now you may have heard about the two bombings that occurred last night in Kampala, just before midnight. We just want to let you know that Amber and I are very okay as we have been in Kenya for a work conference since last Friday.

We have had a meal in each of the establishments that were bombed, but never at night and never when large groups of people were present (as in for watching the World Cup final). These events shouldn't affect us all that much apart from keeping us away from crowded public areas.

Please keep the families and friends of those who lost their lives in your prayers, as well as the Ugandan and international authorities who are responding to these threats and tragedies!

You two were the first folks I worried about. Did you hear some students from a sister church to the church Mary was married in and from our area were there and I think someone was injured...Thanks for letting us know you are ok...Pat
