Kessels

KesselsPaul and Jodene Kessel were some of the first staff with Kasana (New Hope)  when the ministry first started up in the late 80’s.  They now live in Dickinson, ND and have 6 children of whom they brought their youngest three with them on the trip (Michaela, Abby, and Leah).  It was great sharing life with them for a week, gleaning from their wisdom, and just being encouraged by having people around to help who really understand the ins and outs of life in Uganda!  Paul still remembers a fair bit of Luganda, so he impressed people around here with his conversation.  The problem is that some of them think that they were talking to Syd…so now they are going to expect Syd to speak Luganda as well as Paul :)  Better get studying…
