The Ida U.S. Tour

Welcome to the U.S., Ida.

My two worlds will collide again this weekend as my good friend, Ida Bazanoona, arrives in Tulsa. Ida was the first employee at what was then called Jemimah's Cafe in Jinja, Uganda in 1997 and together we worked and developed the place now known as The Source Cafe. She was instrumental in the growth of not only that ministry but also continues to inspire the growth of a community of believers around her. She and I will share some thoughts with the Memorial Drive Church of Christ this Sunday morning. Ida's life tells a great story!

Ida has already inspired many in her first trip to the U.S. She has been to Washington DC and Michigan and will be on her way to Oregon next. Ida has the great smile on the far right of this picture.
