It takes two days to get to Uganda. We’re most of the way there now. We had a 14 hour flight that took us over the northern hemisphere and down through Europe and into Dubai. While in Dubai we had a hotel as a part of the travel arrangements on our long layover. Once settled in, a few of us went to the Dubai Mall to see the world’s largest mall and the tallest building the Burj Khalifa.
Dubai is a fascinating city, very modern and very clean, there is so much construction here that it’s hard to imagine that the city is less than 50 years old, and it’s really a testament to human ingenuity to see a city built on sand, with no water and no resource around.
It reminds me of Genesis 11, in the story of the tower of Babel. “And the LORD said, “Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them.” Dubai is certainly proof we can do anything we put our hands too.
