The Allreds enjoyed a month in Uganda last summer. We are riding a boat and looking for hippos and elephants (we found both). We loved the time together and absolutely love Africa. We are so excited there will be two more temples there.


Sean is straddling the equator. The weather in Uganda is perfect all year around and hardly changes from January to June which means shorts are the way to go.



Here is Rachel with some of the Rwandan school children. They loved each other and this shows the true family of God which may be found in all variety of shapes, sizes, and colors.



Jessica is here with one of the many beautiful women of Uganda. They were so quick to laugh and smile with us. They are changing the world with their goodness.




Nathan is gathered with some future world cup soccer players. They had a great game during recess and were happy to show this white man their skills. They sang a song or two for us and we taught them "Popcorn Popping" and "I am a child of God". It was awesome.




Adam is ready for action in a tribal hut in Kenya. The boys are taken from their mothers about age 11 to live on their own. We do not practice this in the U.S.A but there are days...





Our family joined Jessica and a group of 15 BYU students in Uganda this summer. This is our group on a Safari in Queen Elizabeth Park. We are all smiling because we have just found lion tracks and a few minutes later we actually saw a small group of lions in the distance. I tried to get closer for a better photo and the guide called me back frantically. He said that the lions in Uganda like "white meat". Ha, Ha

How do the Allreds pull off the "summer in exotic places" EVERY summer? We were very impressed with Wm and Mary university when we visited and I know they are a very highly rated university. But their travel abroad program is exceptional.
