. Locuge is a different kind of guy. In Karimojong culture, the women do all the work while the men mostly sit around under trees and talk about life. Locuge is a kind of servant leader in his family. He and his wife are always together. He peddles her on the back of the bike wherever she needs to go and generally takes good care of her. He does this so much that I am told people around town have taken notice and comment on it when they go by.
This couple is an inspiration to us of the human spirit that God has endowed in each one of us, determination, an uprightness of character, and a continual joy. They work together, make less than $1 a day, and are filled with joy and in turn fill us with joy. It is such a privilege to be around people like this and to learn from them. Shalom Home has recently offered them a job to move onto the property and cook for and help raise the children. We are going to be building them a house (really more of a yurt styled hut), getting started this week. Keep our friends in your prayers.
