Ride for Refuge 2012

Resting in the shade at the grave site.
Yesterday was the third annual Ride for Refuge here in Soroti. (In the States and Canada it is well beyond third annual). And it gets bigger and better every year. This year I think we were 50 former child soldiers riding with 20 of us from ITeams and 30 other Ugandans we share ministry with. It was a lovely, scorching day for riding hours in the sun. We rode 12 km out to the mass  grave site where we spent a few hours cleaning it up and had a time of prayer together before riding back. I didn't do a great job taking pictures but here are a few.
