“Bampita Sanyu” is what I say in Luganda (the language for this region of Uganda) when I introduce myself - meaning My name is Joy.
Sanyu means Joy. I was introduced at Golgotha Missions Church on Sunday and Pastor Patrick provided that translation which I’m now called almost 100% of the time. It’s been really fun to have the family here and kids at the school call out my name – Sanyu! Sanyu!
I am just about a week into my time here in Uganda and while I said I had no expectations before leaving, four days in I was really missing home. Being all alone, in a foreign place with a language I don’t understand and a completely different way of life was not what I expected! That being said, I got through the next day and really enjoyed the time I had! I just need to remember to “be still” and realize that God is using me just as I am and blessing those around me even though I might not see it.
