Unexpectedly home

Well, I'm home.. and it's cold! Unbelievably so.
I was wondering around my parent's central-heated house wearing a scarf, jumper and fleece. It's very tidy, and a lot of personal things have been put away (we tend to collect a lot of bits and pieces from all over the world) as they're trying to sell the house. It means I have to keep my room tidy and everything.
In honour of my return, we had pie-minister pies, which, I have to say, are the perfect returning-from-a-hot-country-to-a-freezing-Britain first meal.
I have few plans while I'm here except to spend time with family and friends and refresh, and work out what my life is going to look like when I return to Uganda in 3-4 weeks. Things have changed dramatically and heartbreakingly, but our God is one who brings life from dead seeds and joy from tragedy. I feel His challenge to return and His Spirit to equip, and I'm excited to see what He has planned now.
I do plan to come up to Glasgow at some point soon, though still have to work out the dates. I can't wait, though a good friend sent me a video of the snow that I think was supposed to excite me but actually made me pretty nervous. I'm definitely not made for this climate, especially the random weird happenings in UK weather patterns right now.
Insurance update - I have to unashamedly evangelise for Banner Insurance, the most wonderful insurance company ever! Within two weeks I've been able to replace everything, and their emails and phone calls were personal, understanding and efficient.
If you want to get in touch, I'd love to see you, though  please bear in mind I'm emotionally drained and have come home for rest as well as to see people! I'm using the same number I had at Christmas, and if you don't have it then feel free to get in touch. Remember my Ugandan number doesn't work here, and I don't have very many people's numbers so please sign your texts!
I have to take this opportunity again to thank those of you who have given to enable me to come home, both prayer and financially. I have faith that God will bless you richly for your sacrifices, and I know He will use this time well.
