Here's a video from last year made by Nick Laing in Uganda. Though this video isn't particularly serious in tone, it actually captures a large part of what serious mission is all about: building real relationships with real people. In fact, though programmes are important and have their place, sometimes the most fruitful moments are found in the midst of everyday life. The video also gives us a glimpse of the area Nick & Tessa are living.
(Nick does apologise for his singing, which he describes as sounding like a "tone-deaf 5 year old.")
