By now most who follow this blog know the story of OTA and Evelyn Komuntale. But what is it really like to manage the work and projects the organization does in Uganda? What most of us will never know is the tremendous sacrifice, commitment, and pressure involved with doing this work full time. While there are partners and volunteers that give so much of themselves – time, talents, and finances, Evelyn truly has poured herself out on behalf of the people that Outreach to Africa serves. Doris Sandrick, an integral part of the OTA team in California, shares her perspective of “A Day in the life of Evie”.

20120910-232118.jpg

I have the privilege of having Evie share my home with me when she is in America. In fact, she has been staying in her “little bedroom” for great lengths of time over the years. It was in that little bedroom that the dream of a school came to fruition.

Life is exciting for an old lady and her dog when Evie comes to town. Her schedule is exhausting, and that is just from my “watching” what she does from morning to night. Her phone is glued to her ears, starts to ring before she even gets up, and ends way into the night after she checks in with what is happening that day in Africa. I’m not sure she even sleeps after some of those conversations. Even though I can’t understand the language, I can sense what is going on by the sound of her voice and the prayer requests thereafter. One crisis may be handled, but ten more happened the same day. An example was the last call she received before her return home to Uganda a few weeks ago. She didn’t have enough money to cover all the needs, and the frustration and pain of that was difficult. Then, a few minutes later they called back to say they forgot to say they also needed money for food, as there was none at the house. All we can say at times like this – “But God”.

Many of the calls Evie receives are from people who just want to be in her presence – she has that way about her. Evie is a great listener, and I have never heard her be impatient with anyone, even when she is rushing or stressed, and the conversation is trivial. But, thankfully, the next call may be an answer to one of her prayers. Someone’s heart is moved by her story, or as is sometimes the case, somebody says “Lord, I will write a check, just don’t send me to Africa”. Yet, many more of you are saying “Ok God, here I am, send me”. You come back changed, have such a great love for Africa, for OTA and for Evie. I know, because I hear the joy in your voices through your stories and testimonies

Well, Evie is gone again. Her room is waiting for her return. I must tell you what it is like to watch her “pack” each time she goes, but that will be for another time.

Blessings to all you special friends of OTA!
In His Service,
Doris

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a
40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
