It’s good to be home from Africa… I think. My body thinks it is 2:00 in the morning so I’m a bit brain dead. But that isn’t about to stop me from discussing some of my observations from Uganda in 2018.
The thing I’d like to focus on today is Poverty. Why is it that people that live in homes win dirt floors, no electricity, no running water, no access to clean drinking water, and dressed in tattered clothing seem to have a semblance of contentment where as people in the US suffer from depression, addictions, and suicide?
That is the conversation I’d like to have today.

Divorce can cause many problems. But perhaps the least understood is "parental alienation" as children blame their parents for splitting up the family and refuse to speak to them. Or one parent poisons the children against the other spouse, leading to years of separation, anger and resentment. That's the topic today as Charlie speaks with a well known expert on this subject.
As a board member for the charity WELLS OF LIFE, Charlie is off again to Africa to oversee the well spring of support for this organization and their simple work of drilling wells for people without clean water. Until he returns, here's a look back at what that incredible organization and its founder, Nick Jordan, and what they are doing to make a difference in the daily lives of so many villagers.
Stay tuned to hear more about their mission when Charlie returns!
Charlie is in Uganda with Wells of Life again. So stay tuned for some more updates and up-to-date reports. But while he's gone, here's another look (and listen) at one of his best where he examines some of life's basic questions.
