It seems that I am a little slow in posting what's going on with walking4kids.....   Just a quick up date to let you know that God brought me to this very special lady a while back and we ending up getting married.  Jup... the old wanderer has settled down a bit.  Her name is Teri Sprague and she is a horse trainer in Colorado.   She is an amazing woman and I still can't beleive that God put us togeather.  We live on a horse ranch that she runs in the foothill of the Rockies and I am totally loving it.  She also has a passion for kids and will be helping me with projects in South Sudan.  I will post some more pictures of her and her horses and an update on the kid projects soon.
God bless all of you...

Back In Oregon

Thought I should post an update on what is going on with walking4kids....
I recently got back to Oregon after spending the summer in Alaska.  It was great being up there but it very nice to be home for awhile. Will be working on the books and the aquaponics project for the next few months.   I hope you all are doing well.
First picture is of Mt. Denali and the lake is in BC.
Blessings to everyone,
Dave

Jane Gummoh Owanga

While I was in South Sudan I got the opportunity to interview several of the people who make that orphanage run so well.  One of those people is my good friend Jane.  I hope this will upload Ok.  I just wanted everyone to see why I admire these people so much.  Please let me know if this viewable.
Thanks, Dave

Beauty and Some Beasts


This past Sunday was good and bad.  It was bad because I was so busy I couldn't go to church.  It was good because I got to meet some more cool travelers.  The first picture is of my friend Sam and his human, Natalie.  Sam and his family have been staying here for a week or so and I have got to know them a little.  Nice folks and Natalie and her husband Tim might be interested in serving in Southern Sudan.  That would be so cool.  I posted the picture of the bikers because they are mean, rough, and ugly and a direct contrast to Sam and Natalie.  Two of these guys are from the lower 48 and the other from Denmark.  They just met a few day ago and now they are traveling together.  The guy on the right rode his 650 BMW all the way to Prudhoe Bay.  Hope you all had a nice Forth. 
Blessings from Alaska,
Dave

Cruising Through Canada




Driving from Oregon to Alaska was a blast.  British Columbia and The Yukon were especially gorgeous.  The route I took ran beside or through the great Rocky Mountains and I was awe struck with the beauty of this amazing country.  Saw a lot of critters.  Most ignored me as just another rubber necker staring at them.  Drove 2,500 miles in 3 1/2 days.  It would have been much better to take my time and enjoy such an wonderful part of our world.
Blessings and safe travels this summer,
Dave

Some of you may have wondered what happened to me.  I apologize for not keeping up on  my posts.  I am in Alaska right now working as a camp host in a state campground.  I thought it would be a job that would give me a lot of time to write and keep up on things like this blog, but that's not the case.  I get up early and go to bed late.  I'm not complaining because I get to meet some amazing people from all over the world. 

I got to spend some time with my family in Oregon before I came up here and I miss them very much already.  I also miss my new friends in South Sudan.  I am working on a aquaponics program for South Sudan and if everything goes well, I hope to go back over there this fall or early next year.  For those of you who read this, thank you for sticking with me.

First pictures is of me with some of my buds on the day I left Africa.  Second is at a stream coming off Mt. Hood in Oregon near to where my family lives. 

I hope to be posting a lot more.
Blessing to all of you,
Dave

A Few Folks From The Neighborhood


I am in Uganda right now and I have enough Internet speed to up load more than one photo, so I though I would post a few/  #1 is of a guy out in the boonies who wanted his picture taken, but I couldn't get the frown off of his face, and when his frown got more serious, I quit trying. #2 all of the cooking is done with wood and this young man is having fun on a pile before it gets cut up.  #3 is a sweetie that always had a great smile for me and I didn't write her name down.  Will just call her Sweetie, I guess.  #4 is of a young girl from a very poor neighborhood, I mean really poor.  But you wouldn't know it from her smile.
